Default Thunder Tiger Pheonix BXII

Anyone any knowledge of these as a poss starter buggy! It seems that they are a non ballraced B3 which I would of thought wasn't a bad chassis?? For £99 might be worth a go!

Is it a chassis that has potential to upgrade as the drivers skill increases??

It need very little in the way of upgrades as far as I'm aware.

There have been well over a dozen at my club (York) in the last year or so. Most are still there and going strong. Some (most, TBH) have stayed in the rtr style class but a few have moved onto full modified class without problems.

Would like to point out I've never owned or driven one, but there is loads of great advise in the Ansman section. They have an incredibly well supported and dedicated bunch of drivers, both sponsored and not.
I would be buying one if I was starting out.
