Neither........................................... ...............................

Both are great, and I say neither because its all a matter of personnel preference. Your best bet is if you have a local track you can see if anyone's running either rc and ask them to take a look at it and if they are nice enough they may even let you test it out. Another thing you should think about is parts availability in your area, unless you plan on bulking up on alot of parts for either truck you'll want to check what your local shops carry, last thing you want is something to break and you have no way of getting parts for it except for online which means you have to wait for shipping etc..

in my opinion they are for different drivers, for newer guys the losi is better because its a tank and noone can push you around and can survive lawn darts all day. If you are a silky smooth crash free , keep away from traffic driver then the durango. with noone on the track the durango dialed should put in faster laps. its more fragile though

Fragile almost isn't enough, I know really good drivers who unloaded durango's because they break way to often. There is nothing worse than going from 1st or 2nd to DNF because the truck can't handle the course. So I'd say it more depends on the track but agree the driving style is to be considered. If you are super clean and a very good driver on a 1/10 scale track then the durango is an option. If you race it hard weekly on a big 1/8 track, expect carnige and DNFs every couple of weeks (maybe more). The losi is the losi check the losi thread for info. I've driven them all and still stick w/ the scte but of course that is personal preference.

Really well, yet bad. Bad news is it created a delay. Good news is our customers will get a badass truck out of the box issue free. Went and decided to beef up the axles, etc... And are going with the traxxas .8 pitch with a center diff instead of the Ae 1/10 slipper style.
