Default Another "what's a good buggy thread"...

Hate to do it but...

What's a good beginner buggy that won't break the bank and I can learn with?

I would eventually like to start racing but I don't want to dive in blindly.
I'm looking for something that I can learn engine and suspension tuning and hold it's own on a club track.

Thanx guys.

This is a good way to get started. You can learn with this car and even race it with a few upgrades.

+1, the value of the losi RTR is the way to start, form there, like others have posted, put a few upgrades on it - then move up from there....
