The 8T . Because I`m a die hard Losi fan .

Both are good truggies and is just personal preference .

I only have a few races on my RC8T, but like the way it handles. So far I have not had to do any maintenance to it at all, so at this point I would say it is very durable as well. I would say that it also depends on if you race buggy as well, since several parts of the truggy are interchangeable with the buggy and vice versa on both brands....

I have the 8T but also driven a friends RC8T and I think the 8T steering is better on tight turns. That's just my opinion..

Either one is a good choice. Losi vs. AE debates are ENDLESS. Buy whichever brand you prefer. That's really all it comes down to.

Also keep in mind parts, how easy are you able to get parts for either one.

Default xt8

both have high wear rate, in my opinion choose the above for a stable yet durable car
