Default XXX-4 or convert 1/8 buggy to electric?

I have seen the XXX-4 do amazing things with good drivers (like 30' high backflips at RCX with the Hacker brushless guys driving) and I have considered getting one, but I have also heard the xxx-4 has some problems. I could put a brushless into a 1/8 buggy cheaper, as I have a Storm roller. I know the storm will be heavier than the xxx-4, but it sounds like fun to me! What do ya think of converting the 1/8?

I think you'd be much better off with the XXX-4. Which brushless system would you plan to use in the 1/8?

Do you know which model and how much you are willing to spend? Its going to take a lot of power to make an electric converted 1/8th buggy fun.

I have a C50 12L. On 12 cells it will be a rocket, easily as quick as a buggy with a .21 sport engine.
