For me buggies are more durable.

The 8ight RTR is awesome. They're very popular because they're fast, come with a Spektrum radio, and parts are readily available.

The Mugen is an awesome choice. I had the Pro Spec and I loved it. It's a first class kit but a more expensive choice as it's a kit. Unless you buy used or you already have the parts.

Please stay away from electric starters, pull starters, or any starting system that utilizes a one-way bearing. They always fail at the most inopportune time. Starter boxes, although a little more expensive and cumbersome have flexibility with regards to power supply, they work on just about any 1/8 scale buggy or truggy with some very simple (and free) mods and when properly set up are very easy to use.

Mike Burr has a MBX5T for sale on the "For Sale" forum.

His truck is in great shape was used only for racing.

This would be a good option as long as you have a line for parts.

I've got to say the Hyper St truggy from Ofna/hobao is awesome I paid 625 for my rtr or you can get the pro version ( which wasn't yet available when I got mine) for about $100 less.The only hop up the rtr "needs" is cnc steering knuckles , and oil in the front and rear ,diffs.The stock knuckles took lots of abuse but fatigued and broke under "normal driving" after about 1/2 gallon. For the way I drive this truck is better then anything I ve seen. the rtr engine is o.k. but it runs very hot and I doubt it would last, the steering servo that came with it is very strong but the radio sucks. I really think it comes down you driving style more than anything else,usually if I let someone else drive mine they remark on how well it turns, but they still get around the track as fast or faster than me ( I'm not such a good racer yet) . I'm very happy with this truggy.
