The Basher BSR BZ-888 1/8 4WD Racing Buggy is the latest addition from the Basher design team and this time they've out done themselves again with a truly race ready 1/8 scale buggy straight out of the box. 

Everything you asked for in a race buggy has been included in  this model: low profile cab forward body, big bore shocks, oil filled metal gear diffs (front, centre and rear), 3mm thick aluminium chassis, big beefy front and rear arms with equally tough camber links to dial in your suspension tuning, easy access battery tray and one of the simplest motor mounts you'll ever have the pleasure to use. This buggy ticks all the right boxes!

Not only does it look good on paper it also has the performance to back up its credentials. The plush big bore shocks soak up the bumps like they were marshmallows and allow for infinite adjustment by using the threaded shock collars and the hop-up spring sets. For even more fine tuning you can use our great range of TrackStar shock and diff oils. Front and rear sway bars help to reduce body roll and you can also fine tune grip using the droop adjustment in each arm. There are 3 shock mounting holes on both shock towers and the front and rear arms to get your shocks working just right for track conditions on the day. 

While this buggy can carve up the corners and track true on the straights it's on the jumps that it really comes alive, floating straight and level in the air it responds incredibly well to brake and throttle inputs to adjust your angle of attack for the landing.

All this straight out of the box, but we know you won't be able to resist tinkering with it to get it just right for your local conditions so there are dozens of hop up options available and spares for those "whoops" moments when that concrete column jumps into the middle of your path.

Unlike many race buggies the BZ-888 is also great off the track and can be just as fun as a park basher or just to get your dog chasing it for exercise (for those with particularly large back yards).

The BZ-888 is the best value 1/8 race buggy you will ever find, with all the options you will ever need.

good basher for the price, all cars needs something extra so if you're so picky go buy from somewhere else. if you're new to the cars this one seems like good starting point.

Car is OK, compared to the other kit for more money. For starters you need to change; oils in differentials rear-center-front (in stock is only grease). Later need change servo (faster and stronger), change the suspension settings (for me it is too soft), the motor is 36 size and if you change the gearing (yes, in 17-18 pinion gear is a loot faster) motor produce more heat, added 2 heat sink to the motor (find in HOBBYKING STORE: Alloy Motor Heastsink for 36 Size Motor) and add 2 fans on heat sink. Do not forget to give thermal grease on Mootor mount and mount the motor , chassis, and in heat sink. Working programing card is Hobbywing programming card for CAR (search on youtube Working Programme card to Turnigy Basher BSR BZ-888)

I really like this car. Hard to destroy and is crazy fast on 4s battery. On 2 x 4s 2650mah is 40min pure FUN !

Before first run you should tighten all the screws !

Good car for the money and fun as hell. Not so good velcro or strap for the battery, need another solution cus it is to much hasle to fit battery under that strap.
You also need to buy extra wing, they break easy.
Make sure tires are glued to the rims, or at least get a better set of tires. These are ok , but you would tear and wear them out fast if not gentle on the throttle.
Overall fun car for the buck.

Buen coche por el precio,estoy satisfecho.

La tornilleria es de muy mala calidad,los tornillos se aislan a la segunda o tercera vez que los usas.

Apenas hay stock en recambios,si hubiera sabido que hobbyking no repone las piezas no lo hubiese comprado.

Por lo demas esta bien por el precio pero no espereis un coche a la altura de competir,,,ni por asomo.
