Default lx or mbx?

Hello,Well i Finally gave up on a mt and decided to shoot for a buggy instead.Well the ofna lx pro and mbx are pretty much all i can afford.I want the buggy to be a basher but iw ant to be able to take it to the track and run it (not race just runa round with other people.) I know the mbx is better but what I am wondering is do i need that extra bit from my situation?Thankyou

Go with the MBX Pro. More bang for the buck and an all around better buggy! Definitely worth the extra money.

Both buggies are the same size. The LX Pro is an Older Ofna design and the technology is kind of dated. The PBS and the Violator both take advantage of "todays" technology. The Violator is a C-hub design with a big block .26 while the PBS has the Pivot Ball suspension with a .21 in it. The PBS is more of a recer while the Violator is a basher.

The only difference between the Violator and any other 9.5 series is the Violator is wider, bigger fuel tank and not all the 9.5's come with the 26 engine. Mine came with a 25. Everything else is the same as the 9.5 RTR.
