I did have the DEX408, which is the electric version of the DNX408 and I loved it.  Had to sell it as I needed some cash at the time, regretting that now though.

Have you looked at the team c t8 aka ansmann x8 which can be had for £190 right now on eBay the fact its made by team c means its worth a think about at least if not there's loads to choose from its a minefield it mainly comes down to what catches your eye the most as most the 1/8 nitro buggy market is just one big generic copy fest once one does something that works the rest follow.
like the 1/10 scene at the moment most the top manufacturers are changing the wheel hex size from 12mm to 14mm to deal with the latest brushless systems power it should have been done years ago but times are changing

The problem is you got the rtr version and as most rtr cars are their only lightly put together they always need stripping and rebuilding

Mp9 is prob the best buggy out there at the mo, the team associated rc8.2 is excellent also. If your planning to race it go to your local club n see what everyone's using n give you a better idea. Most popular at the moment at my clubs are rc8.2, losi 3, s works and the d812

I've just bought the Xray XB9e off a mate. Can't believe the kit does not come with wheels or a shell. He keeps raving about the Team Durango DBX408b being half price on ebay, but I've always been a Tamiya/Xray man

That is a really nice buggy. First one I've seen. Any chance of some pics with out the shell? What electrics are you using?

Talking of photos, where's the pond? I guess it wouldn't fit on the wall!
