if you go to the 1/8th scale buggy forums there are alot info on there. i havent had one yet but for your budget i heard you can't beat the hyper 7. that one and the ofna picco are both (from what i hear) real good buggies for the price range

Kyosho has always been on top of the buggy game. Not a lot of following outside racing but they do rock!

The Hurricane XP, by far. It's possibly the best car Redcat makes in terms of quality & durability/performance.

Double check budget

Just a little food for thought. I just recently got back into RC and went with a REVO based on a lot of what I have read on their durabilty. I beat the snot out of it on a fairly regular basis and thus far have only lost aslipper clutch pad that was covered under warranty. I have not HAD to buy any parts so far but am already into this car almost twice the original cost of the car between filters, tires/wheels, back up slipper clutch kit, 3 piece clutch kit for back up, fuel, batteries, charger, wing and mounts, temp probe, body and a few other things that add up really quick. My initial investment of just under $500 is now up to close to $1000 much to my wife's displeasure. Just be aware of not only your initial budget but the maintenance as well. On the other side, they store very easy with a little care and will wait very patiently until budget allows for necessary repairs.
