Default RC8T or Losi 8T

Just wanted to get some opinions from those that have driven both. Any input is appreciated

seeing as the RC8T was JUST released....it'll take a good couple weeks for regular "club" guys to get theirs and give true unbiased review...also the 8ight's getting a new facelift in the next couple weeks...so things could be a little different in a couple weeks.

the eight is a little more adjustable(suspension, linkages) but is a really smoth and fast truck. the losi is well known and has been out for a whiland soon there going to come out with the 2.0 truggy. so i say go with the 8t newer and a funner truck.

update when you decide

The 8ight T is a very robust truggy. I race one and at times they can be a little bit of a handful to setup and get right, but once they are right........... wow what a truck. And not to mention my CL7B does push it along quite well

But the RC8T is new, so it will take a while to see what it is like, but I'm sure that it will be good as well

Anything just being released is bought on faith. It takes an entire season and some varied opinions to find out what a new product is made of. I'm not suggesting either Truggy you are comparing 1 trugg against the unknown. In math I think that is 1*x=x
