.....so its automatically a losi clone, because the engine is moved up to the center more like the 2.0?

Its impossible its a Losi copy .... if it where, it would have to wear out in a gallon, have constant drivetrain durability issues and be a complete headache to work on and eventually hit ebay....

So I dis-agree

not all losi's are like that so I found that statement to be wrong.

It doesn't look like a bad copy of the 8t 2.0, but we will reserve the super exact copy award for Xray when the 808T comes out. That said I hope they worked on their plastic, because that buttery soft plastic from the D8 is not going to handle truggy weight.

I am anxious to see this truggy. If it delivers like the buggy it will be a great value.

Its funny how a lot of people want to compare every buggy and truggy to a losi. xray 808 to a losi ,a d8 to a losi and so on. So if it has tires its a copy from a losi. Maybe extreme but you only can design a buggy or truggy so many ways

i dont know why everyone say is a losi clone or blag blah blah..... its irrelevant every company has copied designs from each other, from chassis layouts. we all know this is true.

thats like saying every major company copied kyosho or mugen for putting big bores on there latest and greatest.

every major RC company has copied each others design.

come on guys.....

I dont see the resemblance to the losi at all. I hope the Hb drive train issue is resolved. If the buggy is snapping bones what will the truggy do?
