LOSI is better

The SEARCH feature might help you more than people's opinions in here.

Not if you read the threads that are dedicated to the cars he is looking at. There is alot of good info in the vehicle specific threads, and less opinions.

From what I am noticing from other drivers who get used to the Losi and then switch...they always seem to go back to the Losi..I think once you get the knack for driving that buggy, everything else seems unsatisfying...myself I have never owned one because I refuse to waste my $200 metric tool collection

Every post is either a question or an opinion some opinions are more objective than others.
I agree with Jazz240 the losi doesn't drive like any other buggy available if you're happy with the 8 you probably will not adapt very easily to any other kit.
Now if you feel the eight is a handfull twitchy and unstable one of the more conventional designs will probably suit you better.
Your best solution would be to try an MP9 with a proper set up and go from there.

Actually there are plenty of posts with pure information and experiences. Might be some opinion mixed in, but factual info too. I was just sayin, he might get better results if he reads up about it himself instead of asking for people's opinions.

I have also come to realize that there is no such thing as which is better...you need to find the buggy that fits your style of driving, if you need to change your style to suit your buggy you'll never be happy..Losi needs finese and expierience to be driven fast, while other cars are more point and shoot, some cars handle better and jump better so if you drive like a maniac and always want to clear the triples you might be better with something like that

Thats 2 more than you should of. I have ran losi buggy and truggy for 2 years and never broken 1, and never changed them in that time either. 1/8 vehicles should not break arms period.
