Update 5/31/12 This car with a little front chassis brace mod it becomes instantly awesome. I have also learned that many X1 and X2 parts fit this car so upgrades can be caught at a bargain sometimes. I also have got rid of the e-clips and put the screw hinge pins in for the reliability and piece of mind. Batteries are getting cheaper and so are electronics so this buggy is a grade A- now in my book. Body style keeps dirt out better. Just a couple things missed that needed to be brought to atten[More…]

******UPDATE: I have driven the crap out of this car, and I LOVE IT! I like this car so much, I pimped it out with all the option parts I could get my hands on. This car has very aggressive, yet predictable handling tendencies, and can hang with any e-buggy on the market. It responds well to setup changes, and can easily be tuned to suit your driving style. I have pushed its limits, and found its weak points, mainly the RTR grade parts on the front end, and the stock chassis. ProTek 50C and 65C [More…]

I am new to 1/8 scale, so it is really hard for me to compare to this car to other rigs. The only other 1/8 buggy I have driven was a friends RC8E. compared to that, I think the nexx has better handling and turns tighter, but I admit that was a long time ago... Most of my rigs are 1/10 scale which I have a lot of experience with. With that being said, I love this car for what it is. The chassis layout it great and very well balanced. the fact that you can use two 2s packs and its price point mak[More…]

The car is dialed right out of the box. However, it is not durable at all. The front shock tower bent with the first roll over. I replaced it with the carbon fiber upgrade and that broke too after about 2 weeks of light use. The chassis tweaked after about 2 packs. I had to manually straighten it out. You will definitely have to buy several upgrades for this car to make is race ready and buy the time you spend the cash on the upgrades, you could have bought a better car. Save your money a[More…]

Hi...this buggy is awsome for the price...yes you will have to put some hop ups on it...but you will be under budget..comparing to hi class buggies..it is light...got great balance... handles great...in a straight line nothing can compare to it..great handling on the air..super durable. . Don't know how ppl say its not...i've tried to break it from day one...and it is really tough. . I did put some hop ups on it..like the chasis brace from SNS graphite.. and both shock towers...other than that, [More…]

Car is very fast, needs few hop ups before race ready. Tip: boil all front suspension plastic and they will be twice as durable. Had my car for a season and a quarter and only broke once.

Nice little buggy for the price. Very well balanced and with a narrow chassis it hugs the corners very well.(given your using proper tires for the track your driving on) I ran this at a local track with a few issues I have found with it. As stated by the other person the foam inserts for the tires are junk, e-clips that should have never made it into the design, the front c-hub plastic is weak as are the upper a-arms you should by replacements to have on hand I broke mine after 2 laps...YIKES..[More…]
