    10/buggy performance

    when i bought my himoto cyclone, it said the top speed was 60 MPH, now i know thats not true, but the thing is definetly fast, and i was curious if anyone knows the actual speed rating, because i think himoto has a good thing going with the .18 engine im going to try competing at my local track, i put a HPI tuned pipe on my cyclone (truggy now check my pic) and i really think it could win, any thoughts?

    RE: 10/buggy performance

    Is this the truck version?? I am trying to decide what to get and would like to see what the truck looks like hopped up. I am also looking to see the 1/8 buggy hopped up if anyone has any of that. I am looking to race at the local track here in my area.(TX) I am wondering if these will be competitive against the higher priced buggies and trucks.
