Thinking of getting a buggy
Ok so I know this is pretty much and individual preference but what would you suggest for someone wanting to buy a 2wd buggy? What is the most popular one you see at the track? I've been around the hobby for a very long time(first buggy was a grasshopper way back when they first came out) but have not been serious about racing. Thinking it might be a good way to relax. Would like to be in a competitive buggy when I go racing. I know alot of it is going to depend on my driving skills but I would prefer to not be out gunned before the first squeeze of the trigger.

this might help....
generally buggies are 4x4 and Stadium Trucks are 2wd...

Personally I'd goto the track you plan to run, and see if they have a 2wd buggy class first. Then see what the others are running, and see what they stock parts for as if you break a part you can get a replacement fast.

if they have a 2wd buggy class and you have a budget, look into the thunder tiger phoenix XB pro. it is brushless, RTR for $200. Best part, it is really a team associated B3, which means it can do well on a track and there are plenty of parts and upgrades available.

If money is no option, the Durango is the popular 2wd buggy option at my local track.
