i haven't run my x2 yet, haven't even really started building it.... but it will be really hard to be more durable than my mbx5t. period.

i didn't mean all newbe's were incompetent..... i just meant there are a few mistakes to be made.

get some facts straight before you knock a truck completly

Dang cheesecack..........I`m glad you haven`t had any problems with yours but there are a lot of people that had..the AE aluminum is crap....

ON the other hand I raced my X2 today ..I only had ! problem with it and that that the screw that go through te ackerman and tierod s are way to short....I replaced thesewith longer ones and Took 2nd in the 20 minute main today....

no there not straight...... when some one comes out saying i destroyed my hinge pin braces on my rc8t then they are right but as of now everyones panties are still in a bunch because of the crappy buggy quality in first run kits. which they sent out a service pack for i don't see any other companies doing that.


And rossoh10 on the outer tie rods run a longer screw up through the bottom on the outer tie rod ends and cap it off with a nut it will prevent that from coming off also that was the biggest problem with my x1 when i had it

basically, yes. lately we are seeing companies with factory drivers who race and test much longer before releasing their cars. i think that is a better idea. with any new design you are bound to have flaws. i usually just wait a few months and let the bugs be worked out before i buy a brand new car.

Plain and simple buy whatever you want other than the RC8T and its proof that you dont like winning. The RC8T is a tank and its stupid fast and handles like a dream. I ran it against several different truggies and buggies and it dominated hands down. But hey buy what you want if you dont want to buy what will put you in 1st.
