Hey!


I am looking for 1:12 to 1:18 RC brushless buggy Li-Po powered.

So far I have only found this:

For that scale range, I'd recomend the Tacon Soar (aka Lc Racing EMB). There is a thread on here that might be helpful for you to read.

I second that. Probably the best value for money option. There are cheaper cars, but these need some tinkering to become more reliable. The LC Racing aka Tacon Soar and "siblings" perform well out off the box, and are very reliable. Just make sure you get the brushless version, the brushed version has been downgraded, and it will cost quite a bit to later get it up to same spec as the brushless version.

As I normally tell people...do your homework. Look at the reviews and try to sort out the ones that just plain destroy a RC vehicle on purpose and the "sugar-coating" based reviews that give 5 stars on everything.

Sure the Dromidas aren't the most powerful "minis" but of all the reviews I seen, they have said how tough they were.

Before my latest RC purchase...I did 6 months or searching/reviewing/reading/watching/researching anything, and everything about each RC that fell into my "parameters" of what I wanted, or thought I wanted in my next RC. The length of time it took to make up my mind might seem excessive to some, but I had my other RCs to keep my happy as I searched for that next platform to fuel my addiction.

The dromida are tough, but the whole drive train sucks in them. I replaced more spur/pinion and differential gears in a month than I've replaced in a life time

Did I make the A Main?

where do you plan to drive this car?

If possible I'd like for you to consider 1/10 Buggy which isn't that much larger than the Tacon Soar... you'll get far better performance with a 540 size motor and will have far better tire selection with standard 1/10 Buggy tires.

There's a current glut in the market for the HobbyKing BZ-444, I'd take a closer look at the reviews for that car
