You have to pick the one that is to your driving style. I have a losi 2.0 and I love it. It is a smoother driving truck. I have a friend that has a strr and he was going to get a losi until he drove mine he did not like how it was smoother and less like a light switch. Do your homework.

Go chill at the track you plan to race at on a practice day. Look around see what you like, ask questions, compare how the differnt trucks do different parts of the track. And most likely, whats popular at your track your local hobby shop will stock parts for. And make sure you ask if there is parts availability for that truck locally.

Plus its another excuse to go to the track

The losi is a very good truck and is very stable through the rough. You get great support as well with Losi.

Whatever you choose shoot me a email @ alanburton20@gmail.com, I have some discount codes you may want.

Hot Bodies D8T I said last year I "quit" running truggy but if I get 1 it will be the 1 I said. If for some crazy reason I didnt get the D8T then my choice would be AE is awesome super easy to drive reminds me of a 4wd T4 which is a good thing. Not a Losi fan but their new truck I have to say does look good and has been doing well. The Mugen cant be judged but I guarauntee its awesome.

Last night there were two in stock and I got the 2nd to last one in stock, I was afraid they'd run out. I can't wait to get my d8T, the design is amazing from what I can tell, and HPI/Hot Bodies make really durable quality kits for good prices. My savage xss has been tough as nails, and every other hpi I've had, has also been. That is a great deal at stormerhobbies, couldn't pass it up, now to figure out what engine I want....

good luck deciding what you want to get. Everyone at my LHS runs he losi truggy/buggy, the AE buggy/truggy and will probably start seeing the hot bodies, saw the first one sold last friday before I could buy it. I got a much better deal anyway!
