Default E-RC8B or E-Kyosho Inferno?

All of my cars are associated, but I have heard Kyosho make the best 1/8 scale buggies. Should I go with associated again and get the e-RC8B or a e-Kyosho Inferno?

If the Kyosho you are referring to is the MP9E, I personally couldn't justify spending almost twice what the RC8B costs. It certainly isn't twice as good as the RC8. I say go with Associated.

"Best" is purely subjective. For me, the "best" is Mugen. But I have my own reasons for that.

RC8B-E will blow away that one performance wise. its not even on the same level. i seen a few people try racing it, and they sold it after 1 or 2 races... the MP9E is good but IMO not worth the money, its a few 100 to much IMHO

Th e E-RC8B is a bit beafier but that dont make the Kyosho a bad buggy. As for the RC8B-E blowing the Kyosho away, not to likely, it was probably a bad driver or a new person driving.
Yes the RC8 is a nice buggy but the Inferno is also a very nice buggy as a step into the race world with the Inferno coming complet with every thing you'lll need to get driving straight away where the RC8 still needs a radio/motor/ESC/charger/batteries/tools/paint just to get it to role without having to push it round.
If you want ot beef up the Kyosho all you have to do is change the shock towers for the thicker ones from the Kanai 3 and your away.
For me the choice is eazy, KYOSHO all the way.
