RE: Newbie Help 4wd or 2wd

Will a 7.5 motor have more top end speed than my 17.5? I know the 7.5 will have more torque.

RE: Newbie Help 4wd or 2wd

If I ran a stock slash for a couple of months would that give me experience to drive in the 2wd 1/10 buggy mod class with a 7.5 motor? Or should I stick to 1/10 stock buggy and a 17.5 motor, since...

RE: Picking a good nitro 1/8th scale buggie

So rtr buggys with larger than .21 are ok. I guess they are not the fastest thing on the block but, would work for a beginner like me. I do have a slash I drive every day.

RE: Picking a good nitro 1/8th scale buggie

If just starting out dont most tracks require a .21 motor in a buggy for novice/sportsman class? Some of the RTR buggys have a larger motor and would not be suitable for racing. Is this correct?

RE: best beginner 1/8 scale nitro buggy

I am also new at this and open class is not where I would want to be. I was looking at the Matrix R2 but, it comes with a .28. So that would not work.
What does it take to go from buggy to truggy?

RE: best beginner 1/8 scale nitro buggy

Can you race a .28 motor in the 1/8 buggy class for sportsman/novice or does the motor size not matter?

RE: Newbie Help 4wd or 2wd

RC10T4 is 2WD. I am leaning toward 4WD buggy. Trucks are not popular here. Some one said 2WD is faster because it's lighter and was wondering, does that sound right to the rest of you?

RE: Newbie Help 4wd or 2wd

Can 1/8 race in 1/10 class off road indoor? Also read on some of the forums the LOSI 8ight-E is not that reliable and at $900 I would not even consider it. In 1976 you could buy a full size Honda...
