If you love Mugen, just get the 6T. You will be happy.


Seems like the trucks to get right now are the MBX6T and the 8ight-T 2.0.

The D8T is sloppy but handles great. I just made that step up and am not sorry I did.

Default Losi all the way

Try the 8ight-t 2.0 from Losi. It is sweet.

6T all the way, mugen quality is second to none . I moved from a 5T earlier this year and it does every thing better.

Mbx6t is lookin sharp at every track I've seen it at.

Why hasn't Xray come out with an 809T yet?

That's the 1 million dollar question isn't it?

I know it hasn't been mentioned yet, but the FT RC8T LE is a great option also. It comes with all the fixes and the only thing I would add to it would be the alum. rear hub carriers. Since I have gotten those I haven't broken anything. The RC8T drives far different from the Losi or MBX6T, it really likes to be driven aggressively and to be pushed.

Seeing as you already have the 5T it might be wise to go with the 6T though as Im sure some of the parts are compatable and you have experience working on that chassis.

Yes, pay me.

Maybe they can't decide how ugly they should make the body. They could shape it like tuna to keep up with Losi

Or maybe they want it to look more like the hotbodies truggy, a 57 chevy after a piano was dropped on its center.

Or maybe go Jammins way and try to make a Ford F150 and fail completely.

I vote they make an aero body with frog eyes. It could come with stickers that say "boing!".

I just think its taking extra long because they don't have any 4 yr old children that happen to be Rat fink fans on their desighn team like the other truggy manufacturers.
