If you have the 1.0 losi, run it. As parts wear or break, replace them with 2.0 parts. Easy

i my opinion, i would reccomend the rc8b, i have drive the 2.0 and the B and i like the B better.to me it is WAY more consistant and you dont have to drive it as agressive to be fast. when i drove the losi, didnt seem to be consistant you had to be to agrresive with the car and the car wouldnt stay planted very well. so my choice would be rc8b

1+ on the eight buggy i have the eight 1.0 and it seems like u have to be somewhat aggresive to be fast but it also depends on your clutch setup my is set to be smooth and not to hit as hard so its not really loose at all and very stable count say that with a harder hitting clutch setup

Default Losi 8ight 2.o is the way to go

I got mine about 5-6 months ago and i bought the rtr all i changed were the servos and the thing has been a dream I run races almost every weekend and have about 4.5 gallons through it and it still runs like a top I am new to the hobby and just qualified 3 for the pro seriies in florida and finished 5th in the a main so that tells you how smooth it is.

Dont get me wrong, I am all about the RC8B, but with you already having a brand new 8ight, you might as well run what you have. Its not about the brand, but about getting on the track, and enjoying the competition with you fellow racers. No one is on the stand saying my Associated is kicking your Losi butt. Once we come down maybe.

Losi 2.0 is the best handling and all around best buggy and truggy out and dont need 370 service packs to keep up..

Not on your list - I would say I like the mugen MBX6 or if you are looking 2010 xray 808

Token throwing a rock at a glass house isn't very good. LOL!

I would keep the losi 8ight 1.0 and enjoy. It's a great buggy.

The AE 8th scale cars are not popular around here so I've only seen a couple. The ones that I have seen have been pretty quick. Losi dominates here and pretty much everywhere.

They're both relatively cheap to keep running. The Losi has a very unique set of handling characteristics.

I've found the key to be... go with what you want. You'll end up trying it in the end anyway.

First of all dont get the "joke" - People can talk about the Losi all they want but the proof is in the pudding........ Losi and AE dominate RC 8th in the US. But I think LOSI is the better of the 2. I guess the rock think was saying the Losi breaks - - - hum, I am one of the hardest people on my stuff I haul ass and dont care.... I have not broken any thing on my Losi..... NOTHING, lost a few servos due to my error but on the LOSI NADA.........

He said he normally runs that latest - Im sorry but the 1.0 compared to ANY new buggy dont cut it.

Sell the 1.0 and get the 2.0 its a different buggy and no dont bother upgrading because its WAY different

It makes a big difference. The 1.0 and 2.0 feel very different.
