Default Losi Eight T 2.0 RTR vs XXL in regards to ...

is it true that the gearing on the Eight is more geared to truggy tracks? I've read that the Eight T cannot take the abuse at the top end for long periods of time because the gearing is intended for the track.

I love the Eight T and the XXL but I don't I'll be hitting dirt tracks that often. I'll primarily be using the vehicle in parking lots, grass and dirt. I will definitely be utilizing the top end to race friends and what not.

Having said that... can anyone tell me if the XXL has better gearing for my purposes?

Thanks!

you can put a taller bell on the 8ight t and will hit better top end than stock

I know the 8ight is a truggy but how does the XXL handle comparing the two?
