Default My first 8 scale buggy: Losi 8ight 1.0 vs Kyosho Inferno ST???

I'm looking at my first buggy/truggy to get going at the track. I'm looking at either the Losi 8ight 1.0 or the Kyosho Inferno ST. Both would come as rollers. Is there preferences here from you guys? I'm very new to the buggy/ truggy world!

Thanks for any help!

The 8ight 1.0 is outdated and the Inferno ST is low spec (but still a pretty good car). This is a really good bargain pro truggy...

A-main hobbies has the Losi 2.0 E.U for 319 bucks, nice. Normal price is 649.
I'd still go for the KYOSHO though and up grade as needed or as wear and tear sets in (which would take a while).
Then again there is the JQ RTR buggy for 398 which is a real good buggy ready the race. I have driven one and its real good.
Thumbs up to Joseph for that. It has a good engine and SAVOX servos which are great. Set up out of the box is almost spot on.[8D]
