jumping is all in setup...

it will give it a bit more steering and you should be able to carry a bit more speed through the turns.

well i cant say that i ever driven a, associated rc8/rc8t or a hot bodies.
but if you want something cheaper, and can get parts for at the lhs than look at the rc8 b or the rc8t championship edition, with all the hop ups. i talked to a guy with a rc8t and he, said they drive pretty good.

If you find one at a killer deal losi has a 150 rebate that would make it around 450 that's pretty cheap for a brand new Losi.
+1

Driving the 2.0 is almost like cheating!

I drive a mbx6t. But I will say the d8t for the money is a great truck. If you can get it for 300.00 it will run circles around the 8t 1.0
