Default 2 cycle buggy?

Hello. I have a Rio 51 with a 2 cycle gas engine and love it. I just bought a second hand nitro SC10GT and really with it were gas versus nitro. Im just a causal hobbyist and do t want to invest a ton of cash into anything. Is there a decent rtr 2cycke buggy out there?

If you’re looking for 2-stroke gas in anything 1/8th scale or smaller, you’re out of luck unless you want to roll the dice on a Losi 8B RTR with the Dynamite (SH Engines) .31 gas engine. The buggy itself is pretty good, but the engine isn’t exactly the bees knees.

Thanks for the info. I feel like I got lucky and got a used Losi 5ive from a friend who bought it a few years back and only ran it a couple times. Picking it up this week. Any thoughts or advice on this truck?
