I raced the X-ray since it came out and have not had to replace anything except the gas tank. The truck is great, and it turns on a dime. When I was breaking in an engine on the driveway it could do 3-foot circles! And of course you get the unmatched quality.

Bobby the 8T's are good truggies and fast in the right hands (ie.. loose handling like the 8B) but they are fragile. I see them break all the time with less expierenced pilots.

The Mugen's are as close to bullet proof as you can get when it comes to the currently available fleet of truggies.

I'm waiting for the new Jammin X2-CRT or what ever they are going to call it.
I see the super big bores on a few of the Jammins at the club races and man they are huge. It really looks like they soak up the bug jumps and bumps good.

+1 on the OCM DT-19T Truggy.....everyone that has driven it says it turns way better than Mugen or Losi....and is alot easier to drive overall and still be really fast. Aaron Biggers won the Tn. points series with it this year. Truggies are being shipped to the USA as we speak....should be avaliable to the public before Christmas. And, most of the popular internet web stores carry OCM parts....not to mention that customer support is better than any company out there.

the 8T is the best handling truggy on the market IN THE RIGHT HANDS, alot of guys cant drive them, but they break and wear out easy and fast...

the 5T is the strongest truggy on the market, and very easy to drive, handles very good...

If you are breaking Losi's, you are a big hack. I am far from being some kind of pro, but my Losi's have never broke because of parts quality. Been running them every weekend for over a year, only broke one a-arm because I did something stupid.

Iv'e also seen plenty of Mugens break, pillow balls and rear drive shafts and so on and most nitro cars wear just losi's seem to wear faster but the parts seem to be cheaper and more readily avaliable

any of the top brands these days are a good chioce but go with what suits your driving style and you can get backup on the easiest.

ask the locals their opinions and see if you can have a blast with a couple to compare

good luck on the new purchase
