ideas on good buggy??

I am looking at getting back into this after a few years, but I am not sure what to get. I have always had electric, but want to try gas out. I need to find one that is not gonna kill the pocket book but yet be a good runner. I am not yet into the big clods, I still like the buggy style. I remember the old grasshopper and would like something comperable at a decent price. I do like the truck look, like the traxxas I believe had a dodge ram set up on the electric side. I am looking for something like that. Any ideas are welcomed...

Re: ideas on good buggy??

<font color=blue>Sounds like you just want to mess around in the yard, i would get this. It's the RC10GT RTR.


It's based on the original RC10GT so it's quality and parts are plentiful and inexpensive, and it's created it's own aftermarket if you ever want to compete with it. It's always on the top of the scoreboard on race day. A few of my freinds got the RTR as first vehicles and they're FAST even though they are meant as beginer cars. It comes built with a radio and pre-colored body (not painted) for about $280 plus fuel and glow igniter, so for another $35-40 you could be driving it right from the box. I highly recomend an MIP temp guage ($35 or so) because these motors are very senstitive to temperature, anything over 230 for exesive periods causes them to loose compresion and not run at all, and it cost more to fix that then it does to buy the guage. Plus you can use the guage to tune the engine to run faster.</font color=blue>

Thank you for your advice. I also was looking at the Traxxas Nitro Sport, which is about the same price. What are your thoughts on this machine??
