I actually tried the Losi 3.0E last saturday. A friend of mine bought it and I really like this buggy. Considering the weight is at the back it's super easy to drive and feels planted. It turns very flat, feels very neutral and the traction is excellent. Quality is much better than the 2.0 also. I wouldn't say as high as Mugen but definitely very good.

Between the 3.0E and the MBX7R Eco it's a hard choice. To me the advantage of the 7R Eco is that it's an improved version of the 7 eco while the 3.0E is new. I don't know the little flaws of the 3.0E but there might be some. But this is all theory. In reality between those two I'd just choose the one I like the most from a very subjective point of view, they're both excellent. The resale value could also be a factor, Mugen tend to keep their value longer than Losi.

I will as soon as the class picks up here. There were a couple guys that are talking about getting an etruggy. I am also waiting on to see if they do a mbx7TR.

From what I understand is when it is available if you order right away you should have it by Christmas.
