    RE: looking for a new rc

    I put together the HPI buggy over the Xmas holiday, my first build. And I'd do it again.
    I did get the throttle linkage up grade, and ended up getting a dominator pipe.
    The tuned supplied wouldn't fit under the body I've got planned.
    Here's a clip of the first start up. sweet!

    Aljo if your out there here's the pipe I was talking about, should be even quieter when I get the body on.

    A good throttle servo might be a good start. You could probably stick with the stock steering servo to save some money, they're not terrible. Mine just died last week after serving its purpose for something like 3 years. You could also upgrade the fuelie itself. Maybe pick up a head kit. It would be a lot cheaper than buying a whole new engine. A good tuned pipe is another thing to look at (I'm sure you'll get plenty of suggestions on those). And one last thing, if you're not already familiar with DDM's Deal of the Day, it's a good way to upgrade as you go, and save yourself some money in the process ($10 clutches today).

    RE: looking for a new rc

    First question you need to decide on is if you want 2 or 4 wheel drive. Where will you be running and on what type of surface?
