Default 1/8 electric buggy rtr

New to the site and hobby I have some questions on which would be the best rtr 1/8 elctric buggy for the money on which I don't have to keep upgrading parts for durability and to be competitive. Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated

Welcome to the Tech brother! There are quite a few buggy's out there that are great quality. I just sold my Vorza a few months ago & went w/a Mugen MBX6E M-Spec kit. The Vorza is an awesome ride no doubt, its very durable for bashing & fast as hell, almost too fast especially on the track, it doesn't take too much to really get it to handle & perform well on the track, but its great as is out of the box, no upgrades needed. Here are a few recommendations, this also will depend on your budget & if you want to get a kit & build it yourself, Xray, Ofna, Mugen, Serpent, Kyosho are more of the top end brands IMO & are built to last! G/L w/whatever u choose bro u can't really go wrong w/any of these, just take ur time & remember its all about havin' fun!


-Losi 8ight-e 2.0
-Vorza
-Xray 808e
-Mugen MBX6E
-Mugen MBX6R (gas)
-AE RC8.2e/RC8
-Kyosho Inferno MP9E
-Hot Bodies VE8e (pretty much like the Vorza)
-AE B4.1 Brushless RTR
-Serpent 811-Be
-JQ Products "The Car"
-Team Durango DEX 408
-Ofna Hyper Star

The Casters are great cars, but they are probably going to be US dealer only special order.

They are really trying to build the brand reputation and hate the difference between the pro and rtr versions. Might jump back in with a hybrid model that has more pro parts than the rest of the world market.

Default rtr 1/8 electric buggy

Hey Guys , thanks for all the responses. First off I guess I should say I'm on a budget of about $350-450 and a first time racer. So I guess I'm looking for a easy and dependable buggy to get started with and that I can get parts fairly easy. I really want to start with a RTR so I can get going , any ideas or advice would be appreciated. Thanx.. Outlaw820 Charleston , S.C.
