Default CASTER RACING

I am looking at the 2 brushless rtr buggy and truggy caster sells. Is this company any good? Is it worth it to buy the car for bashing and a lil racing?

Caster had one of the first OEM electric 1/8 buggies. I liked that.

(we run a Losi electric 8IGHT w RCPD conversion)

Cars perform pretty well. I ran the buggy for awhile in my local points series. Handle the electric power great. If you can, I recommend the pro version.

Rtr's are fine. Its that the pro comes with some of the newer upgrades included on the 1.5.
I own one and love it. The quality is second to none and handles awesome. Rtr will save you money considering i spent 1000 dollars on the pro.

If you have not decided yet, it really depends on what you like to drive. Both are great. The Truggy would be easier to driver though, but if you are going to race you might find more electric buggy classes right now instead of electric truggy classes.
