the d8 is the world champ and the price is very nice or tower has the rc8 for easy pay of like 150 a mo and also they have v specs on easy pay for 99 a mo. makes it a little better and then that way u get top notch stuff and it dont kill your wallet all at once

Default car

It's crazy you post this because I have both cars. You cant go wrong with the CL-1 Advanced or the D8. I just stoped racing the Advanced after 6 mo of hard racing and the car rips and is super strong. I find my self wishing I had the car when I get to big tracks. The D8 is one of the best cars I have run in a long time and one of the best cars out at any price, and the GS Advanced and it must be the Advanced is the most under rated car out there and I cant bring my self to sell it. I will probably build it and race it at the pit or keep it for a 2nd. car.

I race once or twice a week and just did the ACS series at the Nitro Pit with my D8 and at the end of weekend there wasnt even a loose bolt. There is a few Kyosho drivers that race local and I have seen issues with the MP9. As for the CL-1 Advanced it is the strongest car out...and there is a new Advanced + so amain has the old Advanced for super cheep.

What im worried about with the D8 the kit looks like alot of plastic... and the rear sus travel look really limited. ... What im worried about the GS racing is the loss of Marty Korn and parts and the the front shocks look to have limited travel even though both kits now sport the big bores.

Default shocks

Both cars have killer shocks I took this picture for you. The Advanced has some of the best shocks in the world. This is where we race and both cars handle it no prob.

cl-1 front shocks and for parts for the GS amain and horizon hobbies will have parts in stock and for the D8 you can get parts any place and the plastic on the D8 is stronger than the carbon on most cars but the GS car just does not break this is the car that won the 12 hour enduro in Spain.

Do you really believe yourself?? Lutz is awesome racer, but he wasn't running in the front of that pack at the worlds. You got the MP9, but that doesn't mean it is the best. Any car on the market could win at any time, just get one an work with it.
