If you want flat out speed thats the way to go either of the two, but just going fast gets boring after a while.

If you get another, I would go with a 1/8 buggy.

the 10T has More then enough motor....a race .21 or bigger will only beat up on the drive train and blow the power out the tires.

well the main purpose of putting a better engine in is because i want to get it to wheelie. If i take out the center diff won't that ruin my handling?

you'll also end up frying front+rear Ring and pinion's if you lock up the center....imo try it stock first, then go from there.....Im sure a Modder could make that 3.4 Sing like a bird if you took the time to research some one and took it from there.

depends what your looking to do....an X1 is an older version and isn't as desirable if you ask me.

Integra what is it about the ten-t's drivetrain that makes it so much different from the 8T?

the size mainly...i haven't held a 10T R+P in my hand yet to i cant say for sure...but locking the center diff and expecting wheelies would surely lead to a failed R+P sooner then later.

Oh ok I see. I agree. I thought you meant there was something physically different in design or materials that would make it subject to fail but your talking about failing due to the lack of no CD putting load on the r&p.
