Smoke thats not entirely true. I have seen Vik almost lose a main because he hit a wall and busted an a arm or hub, lucikly he was able to limp around for a few more laps and he was up by several laps, but everyone breaks. The MP9 is known for not being bulletproof, but it is a descent car. A friend of mine Ronnie recently upgraded to the MP9 and he hasnt broken anything for 2-3 races at DRC winter series so I know the MP9 is not made of glass. All cars break if pushed hard enough.

I prefer to drive smooth with a buggy. I would stick with lose if you have local support, there is no reason to buy a more expensive kit if you don't have support for it. Losi is a good vehicle.
I don't want to go Truggy since nobody at my local track races Truggy. Otherwise I might go that route.

i say kyosho mp9 great buggy bit pricey, but well worth it.
When people ask me for help on buying a real car I am happy to help since I probably know more than them as an ex-Pro Driver.

When it comes to RC I lack the info to make a good decision. I would like to gather some info to help me do so. I am not asking you to waste your time if you aren't interested. If you are too annoyed by these posts why don't you just move on rather than act like a jerk...

Seriously though it seems especially strange since we will probably be on the same tracks in the near future since I only live 1.5 hours from you.

haha

come see me at delta this weekend, i am one of the nicest person you will meet, very helpful and knowledgeable, just dont expect me to hold your hand while you ask people why buggy to buy.

buy a losi you cant go wrong, they dominate all the local tracks but cant seem to win at the major "world" events.

Grimlock, Try doing some research. I haven't owned many buggies I can only tell you what I've seen break at the track. But find someone nice and reliable. Pretty much any major buggy out there should handle just fine. I would try to find a tank!
