Please let me know. This is killing me! LOL
Also depends alot on your driving style. The 8 (and so potentially 8t) drives a bit like a touring car, and to be fast you need a bit more throttle control as it doesn't respond as well to slam and jam driving. I would imagine that the driving characteristics of the buggy would be evident in the truggy to some extent. I personally like the driving response of the 8, but I can see why one would prefer the mugen, as the losi is seems twitchy and very sensitive to input.
That aside, I haven't has any problems with wear in the losi 8 layout, other than those caused by my own idiocy.
