i think the OP is leaning towards the RC8T RS is because he runs a associated buggy.. Just a though i have no clue. Just a hunch. That would be my choice.

Yes, I'm leaning toward the RC8T because I already have a RC8 and a bunch of spare parts. Also, the RC8T is cheaper than the Losi 8igh-T RTR. Jammin' X2 Truggy was also on my list.

In my case, the included electronics and engine are well known stuff. They are the same as those in my old TTR ST-1 truggy. The rest of the truck can just be better

I'm sure I'll have a lot of fun running this truck arounf the track. It will also makes great articles

Is the equipment that the Losi RTR comes with better than your current setup? May be worth selling your current electronics to run the DX3S if not. Or vice versa if you like your current radio? Tough to beat the quality of items that come with the Losi RTRs.

ok back to the initial question about being successful with a rtr

I believe that you can be just as competitive with a rtr but you will be having to replace parts that have been upgraded on a race roller sooner

Thats exactly what I did. I got my 8ight-T 2.0 RTR sold the DX3S for $200, sold the servo's for $45, and am now selling the starter box and battery for $50. I then put an electric conversion in and use the motor for a spare on the Mugen. So in the end I got a 8ight-T 2.0 roller and a backup/practice motor for the Mugen for around $400. Awesome deal in my books.
