I too am looking for a entry level 1/8 electric buggy...the ve8 looks good and ive also been looking at the caster racing ex-1. Both look great to me but im new to the 1/8 buggy and really unsure wich one would fit my level the best.
take it from many of us that learned the hard way......cheap cars = cheap parts = more money in the long run. There's a reason you don't see those price-point cars racing on a regular basis at the tracks.........
I thought the Vorza and the Hot Bodies were the same?
RC8E is a good car......only issue that I ever had with them was that the plastics seem to wear rather quick, so it's a little more maintenance/cost. VERY good driving car overall. Plenty of parts available for cheap!
