My $.02 - truggies look cooler, buggies drive better.. If you can't afford Losi - which is the best value even at the price - check out AE - RC8T or the buggy..

For the same price as the associated, you can get the Mugen MBX6 or 6T.

i purchased a JAMMIN X2 TRUGGY RTR, so far i think this is the best rc vehicle i have ever purchased, i ran about a gallon of fuel so far and this thing takes what ever i through at it, at the track or in the back yard, i can jump this thing for hours and never brake anything, and we are talking 12' to 15' in the air, it has so much torque that you will be impressed how they run

Silly question, easy answer, KYOSHO MP7.5 US SPORT BUGGY or the KYOSHO MP7.5 US SPORTS TRUGGY. Eather way you cannot go wrong with eather one, not only that but Kyosho is actually number one in the world.Just look it up on the net. You can get a hold of the Buggy Inferno MP7.5sports 3 now in some places for around $220. Check out the Kyosho INFERNO MP7.5VE also, that's one heck of a fast buggy. That car drives at around 70mph straight outa the box:-)just imagine what a car like that could do if you tune it up a little, 500bucks is a nice starter if spent wisely.

I hope your not baseing your descision on how fast that truck would go. Out of the box they will all be about the same speed. Till you change the gearing i think its fast enough for what it is. By the way the rc8t is an awesome vehicle.
