Default Honest Opinion

I run the Losi 8T 2.0 and I believe it is the easiest on the market to drive, and possibly the fastest. The Mugen is also a great truck. I have drove it, it compares to the losi for ease of driving. I think the Mugen is a more durable truck as the losi has some issues with clutch life and rear hub bearings. Both are very nice. See what has the most local support in your area. It always helps to have other guys to give you setup help, spare parts, ect. The hot bodies truck is also a very nice ride but not too widely run at this point.

I'm not a racer I mean I've always wanted to try to start racing but the truggys are all expensive. I would love to get a used roller cause even the new roller is 699. Just don't know which one to get. The only two I know a lil about is the losi 8t and the rc8t. Always wanted the losi since I had my lst2 and recently the rc8t because of my sc8. I'm mainly a basher but I do plan to start racing.

+2 on the copy uhhh I mean joke. hahahaha

Hands down its Losi 2.0. Losi releases cutting edge tech and then the rest follow, just like with the release if the original 8ight.

I've driven the Losi and Koysho ST-RR. I liked the Koysho better, but if your looking for cheaper it's not the way to go...

The Losi 2.0. Very easy to drive and tune and you can find parts for it everywhere. Mugen makes a better quality product but the 2.0t is MONEY.

if you can test drive some different truggys at the track then make your decision. one truck might fit your driving style better then another

If your just gettin into racing and not lookin to drop big dollars on the latest and greatest, then go with the losi 8t 1.0 You can find them dirt cheap now, and still a great truggy especially if your just starting to race.

The Mugen is not a copy, and I love my LOSI - i drove both

I would say if your new to racing then the Losi truggy is good, if you looking for the best deal - take a look at the Losi 8T 2.0 RTR........
