    you can't go wrong with ofna they're simply the worlds best nitro buggys id say if the cash is spendable do it.

    the only reasion i say that is because duratrax aint that great they're sorta a newbie car for practice, drive it until it breaks then get something good type of car.

    Kyosho makes exellent buggies, with Ofna, you have a huge choice, just depends on how much you want to spend.

    I already have nitro stuff so i dont need the rtr. if it is a good price i would get it but not looking that way for sure. I plan to spend about 800 CAN, so what would be best. I was thinking Kyscho or OFNA. Also what are better for parts and how expensive are the parts.

    Ofna parts are easy to get and afordable, go for the Hyper 7 pro or PBS, both are great buggies.

    go with ofna simply because of parts availability. Both make good buggies though.

    I was kind of looking to get a 1/8 but the hyper 7 PBS RTR has caught my attention. I dont really want the PRO because it doesn't come with engine. This could cause a bit of problem. Any other suggestions besides the PBS.

    If your leaning toward Ofna, check out their website, they have a lot of great buggies, each has pros and cons for different types of tracks.

    I think the PBS is the one. How fast does it go and would it be able to beat the Ulra Lx Pro

    I have a LX pro and it is a great buggy. If you jump it a it hits something or rolls it sounds like a rock. No doubt buggies and 1/10 scale cars are completely different. All OFNA buggies are pure beef. Everything on the buggies can also be upgraded.
