    RE: XRC RC-2 BUGGY YES OR NO

    I thought the buggy was more like a toy quality when I examined one. My 1/8 scalers are built much stronger, are half the weight, and I break stuff on them. I looked at it and although the price seems attractive I just know I would break that thing up within 15 minutes everytime I started it. You wouldn't buy a toy grade R/C at the local discount store and put one of your nitro engines in it and expect it to hold up would you? Me neither. Save a few more pounds and buy something of good quality that has good parts support also and you won't be dissappointed. I have many nitros and since I've had my largescale it has quickly become my favorite. Cheers!

    RE: XRC RC-2 BUGGY YES OR NO

    Heres one to consider a total copie of the hpi baja, looks just like it and all parts fit. I dont own one of these or sell them by the way i just think its a good way to go as its cheap and parts are easy to get seeing the hpi parts fit it.

    Yes there is that one is around half the price of a real baja. Which is important here as he said funds are tight.

    Wrong PARTS! Parts are a major issue in the price of a lower end large scale car or buggy. If you bust enough parts your still driving a slower more expensive to run unit.

    RE: XRC RC-2 BUGGY YES OR NO

    I've looked around to as money was tight when I wanted to get a Baja, stay away from the "wanna b's" not all the parts fit like people claim and they are just cheap knock offs.. Parts are near impossible to come by on line if you are lucky and paying the shipping to get them from outside the US you'd be better off saving up to get an Hpi Baja, or FG.. The only other route you might consider taking is the Smartech brand.. Otherwise do yourself a favor and STAY FAR FAR AWAY...

    Good luck..

    Yeah Smartech is fine, theyre so prevalent that you can find what you need.

    I've yet to hear a single good thing about XRC stuff.

    When youre in this hobby, its worth it to save money, and spend more on a better product. You get what you pay for in RC.

    RE: XRC RC-2 BUGGY YES OR NO

    Are you talking about the first version of the second? I have seen the second version on ebay for about $550 shipped and I think it may be new. Not sure.

    Thing is, has the second version really corrected the problems or are they still ongoing?

    I also can't find anywhere that stocks it online, so it would be a big no no fo rme.
