I not a new racer by any means but new to 1/8th scale but one thing i like about the losi alot is the clutch. It's so simple to work on. I like the car alot and the quality of the 2.0 is abit nice. The rc8b is nice too but with the blue it looks more blingy.

I drive an AE, so i like it. Honestly, get the losi. Its a great car. If you like the clutch, stay with it. Both cars are fully capable of winning, it all comes down to how you set it up, and how YOU race it.

But, you wont go wrong with the RC8B. The updated parts make it.

it's Diallled, the clutch is caged with pins. You don't need a clutch tool. Thats why it's s'easy.

The clutch shoes have holes the spring goes in, then you just "butt" the shoe against the inside and put those pins in.

You should get the Losi if that's what you're leaning towards.


I don't think you could go wrong with either one, but you should go with what you're leaning toward.

When looking at what people are telling you to get, look at what they list that they drive. You can see i drive AE cars, but i will flat out tell you, the Losi is a great car.

i dont know about the eight 2.0 i have the eight 1.0 b i love it it has tons of cornering speed and its hard to break ,i changed the stock setup on my cause it sucked so i have the short track setup with the spacers in the front love it ,it jumps good and its light which somethimes can be a bad thing and sometimes not , one thing though if u hate slop in your suspension the eight has prently espially in the steering but it actually handles better like that.
i know with the 2.0 you can drive it harder with the 1.0 with the stock chassis you can somewhat drive it hard but kind of have to be smooth.
as for the rc8b the new one i think is a lot better then the old rc8 i know guys with them that ran at my track and they break easier even with the good drivers as for the jumping i heard with the big bores they jump and handle a lot better

I have had the old and now have the new rc8b the new car is
far better than the old one. I find and have heard from other
guys that run the rc8b that they are a little tale happy but I'm
finding that this is not a bad thing if you can adjust to it
have not driven the losi but hope to soon hint hint Frank
I will say that you cant go wrong with ether one some guys
hear that have ran losi now run associated and the other way around
