Bud if your gonna be running at Rev get the losi. You will have so much more help because so many people run losi there. Plus they have every single part imaginable in the shop.

Alan D.- Thx yah i live like 5mins from Crystal Park but dont mind taking the trip out to Rev. too. Yah im just waiting for AMAIN to credit my account so i can jump on the 8T 2.0 or do you know anyone else cheaper beside Ultimate. I will never ever shop at Ultimate until they get rid of that old freaking bastard MOTO. That dude may know alot a shit but he sucks big balls to me. I used to go to him back in the days about 16yrs ago and i went out to see how it is over there now and hes still the same DICKHEAD that hes always been. Always talking down to you like your some dumbass. So if anyone knows were to get it cheaper then AMAIN hit me up.

For me it is the losi all the way!! I absolutely love the new losi truggy. It is a huge improvement over the 1.0. I had a chance to drive a buddy's X2 for a few laps and really didn't think it was that great. I thought my 1.0 was better at that time and the new losi completely blows that away. Yes it has a copuple of issues like too short screws and crappy rear bearings, but once you put about $20 into it, it is very tough. And handling well it's not like anything else on the market. It feels to me like a buggy but with the stability of a truggy.

JAMMINKRAZY- thx for stoppin by yah the Losi is gona be the ticket. i tried to buy it lastnite but it was out of stock so gonna probably wait for my credit from AMain on Monday and purchase it from them. Thx for your input

derek_18mt- yah i went to both of the sites one has it in stock but it come out to $659 shipped with all the fee's and stuff. The other place doesnt have it in stock. but thanx for the info. i was temp'd to purchase from site but didnt want to have to wait for week and if i had problems have to deal with international bs.

LOSI 8T 2.0 Period, it handles better, turns, better, better everything - yes the first batch of 2.0 had some bearing issues - call horizon and they ship you new ones fast.......

Some things to keep in mind here. You can not tell how a car works by driving someone elses car because thier car could be old and beat down, not set-up, old clutch, bound up in the arms, air in the shocks, end points not set corectly, there are a million factors that come into play. i have drivin lots of cars that have the "same set-up" as mine and are the same brand and they never feel the same. most of the time they dont feel very good at all becasue i take car my stuff and most people dont.

as for an engine .21 all the way. i would get a jammin .21 or picco evo3. best bang for your buck in my opinion. the above applies to engines as well.

Losi 2.0 and Jammin x2 both very good trucks (you can't compare and X1-CRT to the X2. very diferent trucks)

my 2 cents
