The new FG Baja Buggy is now available! The FG Baja Buggy comes in three different models, the FG Baja Buggy 60000R (White body) and the FG Baja Buggy 60020R (Red body) - both of which come RTR with an already mounted FM radio straight from the factory. If you don’t want a pre-painted body and/or have your own radio gear then the FG Baja Buggy 60050 is the Baja for you...

I like it. Looks pretty cool.
Now FG should come out with a long travel suspension kit.

hi mate what holes are you talking about

and the design is not really an fg design there are what is known as sld killers they are really just a low profile tyre of the killers i use them on my mcd baja and have never had a problem with them on mud or sand but i normally change to tractors or stock tyres for sand

can you get a picture up of the holes to me they shouldnt be there i know on 1/8th scale tyres you need to put holes in rims to allow air but you don't need them on 1/5ths
