We have also gone to Indy's new indoor nitro track. Its a great place to run as the track is very large for indoor. I think its 150' x 75' or so....We are going back up the weekend after Christmas which is Jan 3

I was runnin up there the first few weeks. Its real real nice compared to last year... but electric just isnt as fun... My dad and I have been racing nitro for almost 9 years... He's my mechanic and im the driver haha... its alot more fun and nothing to me will compare to 1/8th scale. I've got a table still down there at scotts track but im gonna pick it up saturday because i dont see myself going down there enough if anymore. it kills my whole saturday and just isnt as fun... but the facillity is great!!

CANT WAIT FOR NITRO!!

RyyRyy - You can also consider our track record in your equation.

We dont have axles breaking - Like the D8
We dont have fuel tank issues - Like the RC8
We dont have rear hubs breaking - Like the MP9
We dont have steering knuckle issues - Like the Z01B
We dont have Shock Towers breaking - Like the MBX6
We dont have CVD/Ring and pinion issues - Like the Losi
You dont have the tear the car apart to charge the receiver pack - Like a hyper9

And we have one of the best price tags.... you can easily run a full summer on one car kit.... with regular maintenence.

As far as the update kit, we will have that available to current customers for a very good price... all the parts other than the chassis are to lighten the car and for added acceleration. Theyre not totally necessary but it will improve the performance of the car considerably.

Thanks again team for helping another racer make a good decisionI will answer some questions right now which I hope you finalize your decision.We at TQ are determined to give our customers the most competitive car we can.

We have created a team that will give accurate information for all racing conditions around the country.

The original Z8 and SX8 were different because of specs,we equipped the SX8 for American style tracks.

Now for 09 we have made some considerable changes to enhance the cars performance.We lightened the cars drive line 75% which will increase acceleration.With tire manufactures increasing traction these cars need to get the power to the ground faster and more efficiently.

Longer Chassis =longer wheelbase = more stability

Graphite Shock Towers=lighter weight along with some moved shock mounting positions for optional shock angles.

We will offer this as a upgrade for the 08 car, it will all bolt right on and you will be ready to rock

Also great support we are here when ever you need us.

SX-8 for the price is just as good or better then any of the major brands. As Tony stated the SX-8 dosen't have the issuses of the big brands.My son ran this buggy for 2008 and will run the same buggy for 2009.I might get the lighten parts. I feel the car the way it is great with the lighten parts will be awesome. Rear shock towers and arms for Kyosho is a big problem WC777. for the MP9 I have seen a couple of guys not even finish a race because of broken arms.My son at Psyhco Nitro Blast broke nothing me and my friends at every trun broke somthing.

O....btw as far as carnage goes, my buddy and I raced in Indy a couple of weeks ago. It was his first time out with his new 6...which im not bashing but when he cased the triple and flipped onto his lid, it broke the rear shock tower, diff case, shock ends and bent both shock shafts....about $85 in parts....ouch!

After running for eight mouths with the stock Knuckle the one on my son's buggy finally gave out. I have always had the alumn ones. But didn't put them ontil October .I just wanted to see how long they would last,they lasted a long time.

yeah, mine lasted about 6 months and prob the only reason it broke was due to it being 17* outside....I've only broke the knuckle and a front shock shaft and that was due to hitting a car at the end of the str8! Im very impressed w/ the durability....

I would have to agree with tony here ,i can't sell any parts apart from bumpers as nothing wears or breaks.

Tony please keep me informed about the light kit and may you all have a merry christmas and a happy new year .

regards Angelo
