I also have run both the M1B TURBO and the M8, and i now own a 808, i can tell you with absolute certainty that you would be happier with the Xray... It turns better, is more stable in the rear, more durable and has a much better online support and database on the xray site. That said, the M8 is still a good car but it still has issues. There are 4 M8's at my club and they all have issues with front and rear dogbones popping out of out-drives, turnbuckles pulling out of upper links (the plastic cracks) and shock shafts pulling out of ball ends and the M8 body is very thin and weak.

As i said, i own both and my choice would be to save a little extra and get the xray.... you wont regret it!

The Team Magic is a great car I race for Team Magic Wolf Hobbies. I'm in California in the US. I have had good luck I have found the fixes to all the bugs lowey79 talks about and their pretty cheap fixes as well. Also Wolf Hobbies has full line of parts for all Team Magic Products and if they dont have it they will get asap. wolfhobbies.com
