All these bastard-child RC cars have rather great offerings at rather low prices in comparison to the pedigrees that inspired them.

What we have here is the Exceed MadFire .28 1/8 Scale Nitro RC Buggy. Quite evidently, it’s a ripoff of the Hot Bodies D8, Mugen MBX, etc. I’m not complaining about it being copycat.. After all, who would mind a powerful 2.9hp 0.46cc engine, 16mm big bore aluminium buggy shocks, chrome wheels complete with 17mm hex hubs and even a metal gear high-torque servo as standard feature for the paltry price of US$250? Besides, these RC “Mongrels”, like the ones from BSD racing, are extra bash-friendly than their IFMAR-winning step-brothers.

Bringing you pics of the thrills and spills of the just-over IFMAR 2010 1/8 Off Road Buggy World Championships Thailand, held at the very well-put-together Pattaya Powerboat RC Racetrack (or Pattaya PRC in short). The event ran from 7-14 November, and consisted of many heats of 10 minutes to select the fastest drivers, culminating in a 60-minute final. Weather was fairly cool and low in humidity – excellent for such a tropical location. The cars entered for this race mainly consisted of Kyosho Infernos, Mugen Seki MBX 6, Team Associated RC8s, Hot Bodies D8, and there were also a few CEN Racing Matrixes and some Ofna Hyper 7s. Quite honestly… I feel like either resurrecting my Inferno DX or getting an Associated RC8

Videos on the way… but here are some pics first… You saw it first on
