I have one of the fastest 1/5 buggies on earth and it's a modified XBE.
And if anyone wants to test this buggy of mine, I will be happy to run it against yours gas or brushless!
"mines better!!! muuuaaaa!!
your buggy, my lazer ZX-5 sp on a track any day
anyhow, I thought the whole idea with a 1/5 is that you don't have to deal with charging batteries, tuning constantly and all that? throw it down drive it around and your done, thats why i'm getting one, I have a lazer zx-5 as my offroad racecar, a RC12r.5 as my onroad racecar and a 1/5 as my lazy basher.
