Was at the race track today and saw an Ofna LX One. I really liked it.. it didn't have the best driver, but looked pretty stable in the jumps. I have a Truggy now and don't like it... "it's just OK"...

So I saw this LX One and would like to get one. But first I want to hear your thoughts. I took a step back when I heard it was a low end model... not that that is bad mind you.. but I want a fairly reliable car. I am a beginner racer and race for fun.. not to always win !!!!

If it is not a good car then which one do you recommend... I would say I can afford up to around $450.

Thanks Guys... Have A Great Sunday Night !!!

Steve

For a few more dollars the Hyper 8 is a ggod buggy. And the Jammin X1 CR is also a good one too. They both are ready to run buggies. I have ahd the chance to drive the X1, and it is a very stable buggy to drive. The 8 is still a popular buggy among beginner racers as well. Hope that helps.

Wow, what kind of truggy do you have? LMAO......
I prefer my truggy on and off the track, far more challenging, if not entertaining... Its like my buggy, only on steroids..... LMAO
However, I found my old Ultra LX Comp can still keep me in the hunt, just got to know how to throw your weight around. ROFLMAO

The LX-1 is an entry level RTR buggy and as with most anything RTR, will need electronic upgrades.
If your concerned with being "legal" for sanctioned racing, your also going to need to think about a new .21 engine.

For a first time buggy I'd go with a Hyper 7 or 8

Go with a Hyper 7, Hyper 8 or the Hyper 8.5 or even the Jammin X1 buggy.

I have a Hyper 7 PBS,I was blown away by the performance,the smoothness and tuneablity was amazing....until I bought a beat down worn out X1CR,that beat down machine handles 100% better than the Hyper 7 PBS,and im well impressed with the 7,a big diffrence in performance for such a small price diffrence.If you purchase a Jammin as a first......any other buggy after will feel tight(Crappy)even though they are great buggies,Comparison wise a jammin and a Hyper 7 is like comparing a Escalade to a Blazer,Just my 2 cents,Go with a hyper 7,8,or 9 or the Jammin you wont regret it.Just when you lose control of the Jammin.....your still in control,All of Ofnas history is in that buggy,alot of buggies look like it but nothing handles like a Jammin series

I still have my Hyper 7, and for what you are looking for, I feel it should be highly considered. Very strong, and great performance. I prefered the c-hub setup personally, and I think Nitrohouse/Ofna might still have some, so check with them...

The Hyper 8/8.5 is another very strong buggy, but might be a bit more expensive to get into being a newer buggy...

Have Fun...Burn Nitro...
