Default LRP Trugggy's.. Opinions?

Looking at getting back into club racing and I don't want to spend big this time. Anyone had any experience with the LRP RTR truggy?

Looks like good value and in Australia its a lot cheaper than the competition.
Any help welcome

can you get parts easily? if not its not worth it. also the break setup is the most confusing and pointless system ever. i dont like it, its complicated and over engineered. always need adjustment and it has linkages everywhere. but other than that it ill never break. they are extremely durable. they handle OK.

Parts are not to hard to source, I'd just do my own breakin method, I rarely follow the manuals guide. Strength/durability is a big factor, thanks for the reply

its something you cant change on the breaks, and yeah you have to modify linkage from stock. also remember with RTR the servos wont last anytime, so replace those as soon as you get it. but other than that its a pretty good truggy.

I bought my son the buggy version for xmas last year. Had no issues with it, raced it a few times and it is a match for Hyper 7's and Hyper 8's at the club.
The pullstarter broke and the front servo died after about the 6th tank but a cheap towerpro servo went in and no issues since. They have some strange design parts like the brakes but they are good value.
my 2.2 cents.
