I have the new X2, I love the way that it drives as compared to the X1. However, there are Kyoshos that do very well at my track(RC8T not out yet). You really just need to stick with what you want/like. You can't ask which truck is better because there isn't an answer, all of the top companies produce trucks that can win. Its skill that wins.

Yes, I run an ST-RR but i have tested between the Kyosho and the Losi 8T and for me, I was a lot faster with the Kyosho.
They also had BCE chassis. Cavelieri changed to the BCE chassis before the main, and put down faster lap time.

I have a X2 which i got about 5 weeks ago. I came from a X1 and the X2 turns alot better then the old one. It is also a lot easier to drive fast then the old one. I haven't drive the St-RR or the RC8T.

Good luck on your new Truggy.

My Rc8 (buggy) has three upper shock mouting locations. Just cause you can't see them don't mean they aren't there.

Its the most adjustable car I've wrenched on yet. No need to change settings a mile (the holes are close together, thats why you can't spot them easily). Just a small movement is noticeable on the better buggies.

I haven't seen the truggy yet but I don't think that AE could ever make a car without optional adjustments.

Get what ever you think is best. I'd pick the ST-RR because you know what they can do, the x2 and the rc8t havent had much time to show themselves yet though
