    Coolest Buggy Ever

    So I wondered onto hobbytownusa's web site and saw this on the front page..

    I thought this was the coolest buggy I've ever seen. I've always liked buggies and Ill want one eventually. The ESC and the volts it could handle seemed sick. Then it guaranteed 80mph with optional set ups. However, I googled it to find a price and... $900! I'd rather buy an erevo with a mamba monster for $750

    Nice find Dizzy! I wonder why different sites have different prices of hundreds of dollars? I guess some sites just want more money like that show American Pickers OR Pawn Stars!

    Oh wow, then it's a toss up for me between this and an erevo. I googled the name of it and then used the "shopping" tab on google and it only came up with one and for $900

    that might be the MSRP
    for example the MSRP for the slash 4x4 when it came out was close to like 600$ i think and it acutally sold for 400$
    but yea check amain or thetoyz for finding the price on rc cars..... google doesnt know much about them

    The rail is cool loking but has a few durability issues and a crap ton of bump steer so it handles like a cock-eyed horse. The vorza is a good buggy, it uses the pretty much the same motor and speed control used in the e-revo brushless edition, just rebranded with HPI labels. Internally it is exactly the same.

    ok it is the same esc setup? I was wondering because i didnt think there were that many esc's that can handle 6s. Also, do you know how old this buggy is??

    I mean this is the coolest ELECTRIC buggy out there to me. The Baja is probably the biggest and coolest. Even though I saw some electric conversion kits for the Baja online

    Do ya'll actually have it in stock in the store? I am seriously debating this. I've been researching and you get what you pay for with it: $600 ish for an aluminum chassis, 1/8 size 4x4, mamba monster, 2.4 radio, and some fancy coloration. But I think 600 is out of my range until I get some summer work going.
