i like my rc8 and i have on order the rc8b
but parts can be hard to get all my lhs dont have much
in the way of parts for the rc8s but all the parts for the losi
a main hobbies is the best for me so if you get a rc8
stock up on parts

if you like a loose rear end by all means get an RC8, I drive very hard and have been struggling with the Rc8 for about a year.
Cant talk about the losi as the only losi I have driven was a xxx-nt ad2

the cars are the two best in the world no doubts the rc8 has more steering and the losi jumps better it is a back and forth battle between both of them drive both and go with what you feel is more comfortable in your hands dont listen to these bias people on here that say one car sucks cause they dont like the name its about you and what u like not them.

I struggles with the same thing when I decided to get into 1/8 scale. The only reason I went with Losi is parts availability. I might still do the AE thing down the road
