This question will get you 287,639 different opinions... you need to ask yourself a few questions first.

- What do the other local racers run? (parts support & set up help on race days).
- What parts will my local hobby shop have in stock? (prevents having to order online, or wait for an urgently needed part).
- How much money do I want to spend?
- Are you looking a few rigs in particular? (it's easier to get pros / cons of a few different models versus just asking for a general recommendation.

I love the RC8B because I own one but the durability of the OD cars are top notch. The problem is you don't see many OD cars at the tracks compared to AE. I went to Dalton GA last month, not one OD car same as a local track up here in IL called Newberrys. But there is a good amount of OD guys at my home track Leisure Hours. So I would scope out your pits and see whats popular and what you can get help with.

ABSOLUTELY! I got a bunch of flak from my club because I was being "different". Heck, that's one of the main reasons I went with the Z01T!

Seriously, any of the major names (Losi, AE, X-Ray, Mugen, OD, Kyosho, Caster, even Hot Bodies) will be great trucks, with good quality and durability. You'll hear good and bad reviews on all of them, but you really can't go wrong with any of them.

If you're just getting into the hobby, the Losi RTR's are a great deal. You get everything you need to start running (bump box, Spektrum DX3S, engine, electronics, etc...). If you're already in the game, and have most of the ancillary equipment, a kit would be better suited to you. In that case, put a picture of each truck on the wall, close your eyes, and throw a dart at them....buy the one you hit.

Put up some pics when you get your new ride!
