Default New to 1/8 Nitro Buggy

I am going to start racing 1/8 nitro buggy. I have been racing 1/10th scale and now the area where I live is getting a 1/8 scale track. My question is where should I start? Buggy? Engine? ...etc.

I want something that isn't too difficult to tune but isn't so dumbed down that as I get better I will have too upgarde later on.

Any input would help.

i would go with an rc8b for sure extremely reliable and great handling car. And for engine you cant go wrong with a radical engine, you will definately gets your moneys worth with one, they last around 12 gallons and put out way more power than needed, super easy to tune as well, check out gotnitroonline.com
