I race and bash 8T's I have 2 1 for racing and 1 for bashing and a 8B. I love mine and it's indestructible to me. I did the smart thing and bought a used one the guy had a ton of parts enough to rebuild it completely 3x's. I do mean every part difs, cv's, arms, shocks. Funny thing is I have barely used any of the parts.

8T 1.0's are cheap parts are plentiful and they are more than race worthy. Look in the for sale section and see how cheap they are with parts. I paid $400 for mine with all the parts. I'm actually building a third from scratch with all the spare parts. The only thing I had to buy was a chassis and shock towers. Probably will sell it or just keep it for my buddy's to bash with. As far as racing and bashing goes either the 8 B or T 1.0's are excellent choices for the price right now. Tough, cheap, durable and can still out run anything on the track.

Get the losi 8T RTR. it wont let you down. Very reliable solid rig. Very capable on the track and plenty durable for some serious bashing. The stock mach 427 engine is a screamer and the spektrum dsm radio that is included will give you interference free/hassle free security. For the price you cant beat it.
