Team Associated is probably the most winningest team out there winning many multiple world championships. What is it 23 now. that is more than any and all other companies combined. Losi won how many world champs. 1 or 2?, I admit they have and excellent team of drivers for 1/8 scale but noone has even come close to winning the 1/8th scale world champs like Kyosho.

Team Losi did not invent the 1/8 scale buggy norr reinvent it. if anyone is copying somone elses design for buggies it is , losi, ae, mugen,xray,etc,etc. they copied who? was it Kyosho who came up with 1/8 scale offroad buggies with 3 diffs or was it that one company noone has seen?

hate it when people say they are following losi like they invented 1/8 scale. damn.
and we all know it all comes down to the drivers who win the races alot of the times. just look at the current world championship winning buggy. a friggen hot bodies.he i beleive was making the decision to go a different route than everyone else and therefore was slightly faster.

Well spektrums are junk had 3, one i smashed, 1 i have collecting dust and the other i gave away with a sportwerks turmoil. everyone of them glitched like mad and i kept losing signal 100 feet away, and no it wasnt from a bad pack or almost dead pack. using Ni-Mh packs.
now there is a kid at lhs who needed help with his losi raminator and that 2.4 controler sucks also.. no epa, no nothing on it.

now if there are 500 racers, and 497 are on spektrums, the rest on FM there is probably a good chance there will be some spektrums that fail. even some pros are still using FM or the PPM or whatever it is called.
ohh the spektrums i have and had was 2 dx2's and 1 dx3(had for my MGT)

ohh now to answer the question. best looking buggy-tough one between RC8B, Xray 808, and Kyosho MP9.(i am considering not only body but parts look and bling)
best looking truggy is between RC8TFT, and the Mugen Mbx6T and maybe even the Losi 8T 2.0(figure that one out
to pick one from each catagory i would say Buggy-MP9
Truggy-RC8T FT

Those DX2 and DX3 Radios are the 1st gen specky radios so I'm sure there were some bugs. The out of the 4 DX2.0 We have used only one had a problem, but that was after it was dropped. Sure they don't have many tuning options, but they are a great starter radio.

I gave my little brother my DX3R since he had a DX3S, neither have EVER had problems. Now I'm running an M11 w/ spektrum module. Specky 4 life.
