omg! i think i found those 95% that are dead and speaking from the grave!

http://forum.teamxray.com/viewtopic.php?t=9467&start=0

read up those posts that mentioned the pinion bearings...

to those that are considering the 808, there are plenty of pros and cons there as well, very informative!

The 808 is indestructible. The only issue I had with mine was the bearings and it is because they use a smaller bearing size for less rotating mass. However, this can be easily fixed by spending $10 to purchase standard sized bearings. I put a set of avids in my car several months ago and have not had a single blown bearing. Honestly, the bearing issue wasn't even that big of a deal. Just had one blow on the center diff and I am running a high powered brushless setup too.

Most stuff on the 808 doesn't break. The arms will warp after about 5 months of use though.

I have had the car almost 8 months now and never had single DNF related to a part breaking or failing on my car. I haven't broken anything except a front diff housing and shock tower after I hit a brick wall going about 40 mph head on at full throttle.

Quite frankly, all the other brands are let down in the quality department after owning this car. I am not saying it is the best driving or handling car and will instantly put you on the podium, but I am saying that you will not be disappointed one bit from a durability and quality standpoint.

You can bend the chassis on any car by placing just a bit too much stress in the right place; the 808 is no different from any other buggy in that it does not respond well to continuous lawn-darting

Fioroni have one as above mentiond you can get it att a main hobbies.
Ghea Racing has one too. However im not allowed to post urls yet.

I use the Fioroni one becouse Ghea had not released one back then.
Ghea is about half the price but a main is super easy and deliver fast.

I honestly believe that most people that are not biased and owned both cars Will say the Mbx6 is the better car in terms of handling and reliability.
I was a die hard Losi fan, got the 2.0 when it first came out, drove it liked it until i purchased an Mbx6 didn't realy like it at first cause i probably got used to the twitchy Losi handling but when i got the proper set up on the 6 I was much much faster and consistent...
decided to try the 808 and after missing the A main for three consecutive weeks due to bearing failures I went back to the 6 and the 808 is collecting dust...
like i said in the beginning, most people that got the chance to own the 6 and an 808 will prefer the 6.
