I have a x1 and i am now driving a X2. Which turns alot better then the x1. from what i have heard the mugen is easier to find the right set-up for you. I haven't heard too much abou he RC8T and i haven't seen one yet either. I don't think you could go wrong with any of them they are all great trucks. Good Luck.

Thanks for the great 411 2tan! How is rear traction on the kit set-up from the x1 compared to the x2? BTW viewed your car a few pages back on the x2 thread...very nice build and paint job. Do you paint for others? Thanks in advance!!!

I should have everything set up and ready for the weekend, not that that matters since Fay isn't moving anytime soon, lol! Thanks for the opions...I'd like to see the Tamyia in person, straight line dirve train could be interesting.

i have accually ran the kyosho strr, team associated rc8t, mugen mbx5t and jammin x1... by far the best car was the kyosho st rr. second best i would have to say associated rc8t, then mugen then jammin. there all good truggies but the kyosho is fast and the easiest to drive. the rc8t is probaly the most durable. the kyosho is alright when it comes to durablity but the mugen is the worst. i dont know why people say its so durable... its not. i must of broke that thing 100 times. truggies are the most durable rc car out there. they take a lot of abuse. i mean if you crash hard there gunna break.. any car will. and i know what you mean how you want low mantince but if you want to be fast you have to take care of your cars. there all gunna run like crap if you let them get dirty. i still say kyosho all the way. you wont be dissapointed. just put 10 10 7 in the diffs and its dial on just about any track.
