    Backdraft vs Hurricane?

    From the Redcat website, I can't really tell what the difference(s) are that would account for a $70 difference in price? Is there a reason to spend the extra $70? Thanks.

    RE: Backdraft vs Hurricane?

    From what Ive read and been told the backdraft is lighter but not made as tough. The hurricane is the top of the line buggy with thicker and better parts. Also hase a bigger motor and metal gears if Im not mistaken.

    The huricane is a better built buggy stronger parts, bigger motor, can upgrade the hurricane to carbon fiber parts alot less problems well worth the extra money. You will not be disapointed in the hurricane.

    are you looking for the nitro, or the brushless version?
    may be able to find a used nitro version....but the brushless ones are pretty new and it will be hard to find a used one.

    also, i dont reccomend a used nitro...no matter what model. the chances are just too high IMO that the previous owner didnt take care of the motor right. in which case, you will just be buying a headache.
    now, if you found a used roller at a really good price, and bought a new motor thats a different story.
    with nitros, New is the way to go IMO.
