The MBX5T is a very solid truck. It's one of the best. The new MBX6T is due out within a few weeks. So your gonna find great deals on used 5T's. It would be better than any RTR. Even so, to add an engine/pipe, and radio w/ good servos is probably going to cost you more than $600 Tires alone are $70+ a set

for what it's worth the Losi 8ight-T 1.0 RTR is still one of the best deals around. Good engine, good radio, fair servo's, and a good price. It's going to be hard to beat that deal.

Have you looked at one of these?

Leaves you a little extra cash for a radio or steering servo. They seen to get around the track pretty good also.

You think you're gonna get LESS drivetrain wear with a HB??? LMAO I've never seen a stub axle shatter like HB's do. Nor have I seen CV joints wear out as fast as the HB's do. There's no disputing that the HB is a very good truggy, but it is certainly not known for it's durable drivetrain parts.

Losi FTW every time.

The Nitrage was one of the biggest Flop's of a truggy I've ever seen. Stay Away! Your Jammin is far superior and that's saying A LOT!

Can I guess that with your name, you recommend the JamminX2?
Sorry, I forgot you moved on to the Loosi Losi. Did they ever fix their servo problem?

That's cool. Like I said the HB is a very good truggy. They certainly know how to make R/P gears. Not so great with the CVD thing or fuel tanks though.
