he is from Australia, the d8t kits are going for 350 AU dollars right now and 300 AU dollars is very easy to spend on upgrades for any car... its around 258 US Dollars right now give or take a few cents.


And Cluffy the D8T is not old by any means.

hmm only thing i have done to my truck is orange springs in rear. and im always up against a field of losi's and 95% iv been on the podium this year with alot of races getting first. seems like losi's need more upgrades (metal diff hicky mobobys, v2 shock tower,smartdiffs) and springs are not really a upgrade there more of a tunning aid so basicly stock truck. ohhhhh jconcepts body lol

Ok and i wasnt talking to you was i. cluffy said he is doin $350 worth of upgrades and i wanted to know what those were because i was curious.

Btw those upgrades you speak of on the losi are preference, the diff inserts are smart to do but those are only 15-20 bucks. V2 tower, smart diffs etc are tuning things, not durability. Losi doenst need upgrades for durability, My buggy and truggy are stock(other then a v2 tower on truggy) and i rarely have a dnf, especially for breakage. but back to my original question, this wasnt to start a brand war or anything i was just curious.
