The Tacon Soar is a 1/14 scale Buggy. It was designed from the ground up with pure performance in mind. With a body designed with aerodynamic performance, combined with a wing on the rear end, the buggy handles exceptionally well on bumpy terrain and responds quickly with throttle and brake inputs while mid flight off of a jump. This buggy will put a huge smile on your face when you see it four wheel power sliding through a corner spitting dirt and debris out the rear end or flying over triples easily correcting itself landing on the perfect transition.

Tacon Soar Buggy

 June 13, 2013
By Chad Sams
The Tacon Soar Buggy has quality parts suavh as the many aluminum parts and is built just like a Team Durango buggy for a much lower price. It may only a a 1/14 scale buggy but drop a 2 cell or 3 cell Lipo battery in this car and it becomes unbeatable. If parts availability is your concern, don’t worry NitroRcX.com has all the parts and I got them in 4 days from when I orders them. If you buy this buggy you will not be disappointed and you will still have some money left in your wallet.

Much better than Losi 8ight

 May 16, 2013
By Gustavo Zamudio
Actually 4.9 Stars. Better equipped than the Losi Mini 8ight – comes with spur/pinion cover stock and good electronics. Just need to improve the spindle design to survive better.

Overall a great car!

A real nice fully hobby grade rc car

 December 21, 2013
By Russell A. Young
Pros: This is really one of the nicest car ive ever had. and, ive been racing rc cars since I was a kid. It’s pretty fast. I’d say 35mph realistically and since its 4 wheel drive it really takes of. im pretty sure it beat most nitros. just cause nitros are loud doesn’t mean there faster. a lot of aluminum. driveshaft is too. and its thick, and its got adjustable slipper clutch. all the gears are metal. the motor mount is aluminum.a lot of adjustments on the chassis and toe and camber adj. its got some weight to it for what it is, but it really hugs the ground in high speed. makes it easy to control.

Cons: Well there really not that much. The esc could be bigger. its 35amp. sais it supports 3s lipo as well. maybe with a 3s you could get a wheelie. The wheels suck but their replicable.

I think its the best bang for your buck. youll see this car was enginnered for speed and power, not for budget.

Great car check YouTube for jump videos

Great car. Rock solid after you swap spindles and change axels to cvds. This is a must when buying his car.

Awesome entry level remote control car

 December 28, 2013
By Leonard M. Padron
My 11 year old son loves his new car. We purchased the recommended Lipo lithium battery and wow what a difference in performance. Car is well constructed and when compared to the entry level cars with the same power it was 100.00 cheaper. Its a blast on a dirt like service! I would recommend this to a friend

Very impressive, but a part broke on 2nd day

 January 3, 2014
By J. Richmond
This car exceeded my expectations in many ways. The car is made very well, comes with great a detailed parts drawing, and is very quick.

On the second day of driving the car took a roll in grass and one of the axles broke where the dog-bone t’s into it. The part was easy to find and cheap to replace, but it did break.

Even though a part broke on this car, I would still recommend buying it. I am very happy with it.

Tacon Soar Buggy Buy this for your kid, then you’ll want one too! Highly Recommended.

Tacon Soar Buggy

Fun for ALL! We bought this with some trepidation for our 9 year old granddaughter. She tried it a few times and we thought she might be too young to drive it. WE WERE WRONG. After seeing the boys nearby coveting it, she quickly learned to drive it at full speed (30 mph?) right at them and run circles around them! We live in the middle of a city block, she can drive it to both ends under full control (250 ft each direction). This car is very rugged, made to take curb jumps and runs well in the grass in the park. We’ve put about 50 hours time on it, no breakdowns or adjustments required. The hand controller is very intuitive; we’re still using the first set of alkaline batteries we put in it. The car battery lasts about an hour of drive time (much of it at full speed). Recharge takes about an hour. Don’t sell your kid short, ours picked up driving faster than we thought she would with practice.

Solid Buggy, But Beware Of Parts

 July 3, 2014

I’ve owned this buggy for about six months now. This is an excellent little 1/14 scale buggy. It really comes alive w/ a 2C LiPo battery. It’s all wheel drive, and is constructed very well for the price.

The pros: It’s fast, has a great suspension, stock aluminum shock towers and chassis, fairly durable. It is a good looking buggy and holds up pretty well against bashing.

The cons: Parts! It’s very difficult to find certain parts. The differential boxes will break, get yourself some extras. The stock battery is awful, just go straight to LiPo for $20 dollars more. The transmitter is average. The stock connectors are no good as well. Get yourself some Deans or Traxxas style connectors.

I would also recommend a little bigger set of tires to help stabilize this buggy, even if your going strictly pavement. Be cautious of jumps and bashing until you have the extra parts in hand, otherwise you may be down for a while.

Great little buggy for casual bashing

 June 27, 2014
By jason chen
This is essentially an LC racing emb-1 buggy. Same car, different names, LC Racing is the OEM and Nitro RCX basically just put their name on it and called it a Tacon Soar.

Out of the box, it’s pretty decent quality and comes with metal shocks, full ball bearings, brushless setup, adjustable camber, etc, multiple shock mount positions, and a neat little body.

Ditch the stock battery, even though it’s okay – this thing is WAY more fun with a 2S lipo. And this is where I have to warn you: with greater speed comes the risk of greater breakage. The front shock housing is fairly weak as are the spindles (both front and rear). However, if you look up the complaints, you can easily address these and be on your merry way. Another thing I recommend is being realistic – it’s a 1/14th style racer buggy that’s better suited on a track than it is for bashing around. If you want a pure basher, skip this guy and just get the brushed version since you won’t go fast enough to break anything.

But if you’re wanting to compete with the Losi mini 8ight for 100 dollars less and actually hang, this is a GREAT car to get. I think its worth every penny.
