Default 8ight 2.0 or Ten-T

Ok so I have a buddy who can get good prices on Losi stuff. Should I get the 8ight 2.0 rtr buggy for $550 or the Ten-T for $400?

Will be mostly for just bashing and having fun with a little track time.

Anyone else have any thoughts? It'd be for bashing, will only make it to the track to mess around with since there is no class for Ten-T and I work 2 weekends a month so racing 1/8th buggy isn't in my future.

The Ten-T has more ground clearance than the 8ight 2.0? For bashing, nothing is stronger than a 1/8 buggy. Just my $.02.

Do you bash your 8ight? I've seen lots of posts about how good it is on the track but not so much for bashing in the yard and such.

My comment wasnt brand specific. The only time I've run mine off the track was out at the sand dunes over New Years but I've had crashes on track that were pretty brutal. I've yet to break a single part after 5 months of racing. I did bend an RTR rear shock tower. 1/8 are stronger than any 1/10 out there.

Wasn't questioning the toughness of the 8ight or any 1/8 buggy for that matter. More of can it handle the terrain? Tracks are one thing but going out in the backyard and in ditches and rock roads is a completely different matter. The 1/8 scale buggies sit pretty low to the ground compared to a truggy (I'd love a 1/8 truggy but $$ )

I wasnt offended or anything, just stating that it actually takes effort to brake a 1/8 buggy I cant imagine the Ten T has more clearance than 1/8 buggy but I have no first hand experience with the Ten T (looks like a very cool truck though).

House Jump

Cant say you'll have the same luck with the 8ight but I will tell you I had a crash today that rivals that of most any bash session; exited the course via multiple front flips wide open at the end of the straight

Maybe someone has a pic of them side by side to compare clearance. Plus the Ten-T is $150 less so that would go towards a SC10

maybe you should try the thunder tiger st-1. Its probably one of the strongest truggys out there for a great price.

Default Ten T vs. 8ight t

I bought the Ten T last Saturday and its nice but havent raced it yet. run time seems to be around 5 mins. Plenty of power for a 1/10 scale. Easy to start but a real pain to charge the lipo battery. Its too packed in the battery box with the ross system. The Ten T is shorter then my traxxas sash but wider by roughly and inch. Today i bought the 8ight t 2.0 rtr and it seems like the same truck but bigger. The 8ight t is big. havent started it yet. My opinion is go with the 8ight t.I paid $500 for the Ten T and $800 for the 8ight t.Just due to the small gas tank I would skip the Ten T. Both have the same telemetry.The ross sytem makes the truck heavy but easy to start if you get the starter motor wires to stay on. Hope this helps.
