Default Losi 8ight RTR

i am thinking of getting into 1/8 scale racing. right now im running a b4 and i have no local tracks near. i usuallly go to OCRC in orange county which is 4 hours away haha. i saw this track in bakersfield and its for 1/8. im trying to get good solid car that i could build up on. i was looking at the 8ight rtr. its comes with the DX2 which i think is a good deal! and ive heard all you really need to do is get a new servo and its all good. if its rtr would i need a starter box or not? thanks for helping guys

Brian

no starter box needed. comes with a roto start thingie. it's a smart choice to start with, and a-main has the for $375.00 with coupon.

Even if amain doesnt do the special anymore, ill bet people on ebay will have NIB ones for $390. The new RTR's come with the dx2.0 (they look way better than the dx2) and the 2.0 radio tray which is alot better.
