Alot of People have ST-RR's and you can get alot of help with alot of racers with them. There plenty fast, and you can get tons of great deals on them in the For Sale and Trade section on here.

I like mine!

I personally go with rc8t. It's newer, and associated has good quality.

Here's my theory.
Since Kyosho just came out with the MP9 that a new truggy would be soon to fallow.

At my local track the ST-RR is beginning to struggle. The RC8T seems to be faster and impressible more durable.

I agree with u bro. ST-RR is a older model compare to RC8T.
For pricing is about the same and y not get a newer model.
Correct me if i'm wrong. thanks!

I have run both, I love my st-rr, but I do have a slight problem with the bulkhead getting hot, and I have to replace them about every 6-10 races to keep my ring/pinion mesh right. I do not care for the rc8t's steering feel, but I have to agree, if you can get used to that feel, it is a very nice truck. Although if I were to go buy a new kit, I would get the jammin, great shocks, great driveline, you get all the nice machined goodies with it so you don't have to get king heads stuff, and I drove my buddy's last week and was quite impressed, very stable, and loads of steering.

I drove the new losi truggy for a few tanks as well, it felt pretty stable, jumped well, but needed some more steering on our track(tires might have done it though) I just dont like the losi clutches, otherwise, I would consider it

I would get the RC8T. Its light looks good has great shocks dont need King heads stuff it gives you the FT steering plate. Best looking truggy body. AE Quality, They launch cazy off jumps and land like on a pillow. But I have to say it look at the D8T also Great price and NEWEST design. I never been a fan of Losi or Jammin myself but I will say the new Losi cars are changing my mind about them but I still wont buy 1.
