    Anyone have a Backdraft 8E? Race it yet?

    I'd really like to pick up an 1/8 scale electric buggy, but the "pro" level electric buggies are way outside my price range. Anyone have a Backdraft 8E yet? I'd like to see an independent review of this buggy. For the price, it seems like an incredible deal. I'm also wondering if someone has raced it yet against the "pro" level e-buggies?

    RE: Anyone have a Backdraft 8E? Race it yet?

    Well mark here on the forums bought one, but its the corr truck version . We arent that good on the track yet, but the owner of our local track has one, and he was saying if you change the tires for your type of track it would be so much better. They said they were gonna race it with the sc8's. Its definitely a great truck/buggy. I wish i had the money to buy one. If your looking for an 1/8 electric, i would definitely reccomend the aftershock or backdraft, thats what i would go with. It comes with 2 lipos and a slow charger, fully rtr. One guy at the track actually said if he didnt buy his sc8 already, he would totally look into it, that says something doesnt it?

    I picked up the aftershock 8E Corr truck and it is awesome out of the box. Review here:

    Good info on the truck. Thanks! It definitely seems to be pretty tough.

    Now I'm hoping someone will get a video up of some track time with the buggy!
