How the hell did you find me Jammin Krazy? Hahaha Your killing me! Yeah I do have the Losi truggy but I honestly can say I do not love it! I have AE everything else too and love them! I dunno buddy? My main reason is everyone I pit with on a weekly basis have the RC8. Thats a huge help when it comes to set up, help ,and parts. those guys have spare parts cars at the track, not to mention a parts bin from hell. Hahaha That is my main reason JK. And Xray Ed I ordered it THEN everyone was trying to persuade me to go Losi! I DID my homework and research!

You'll like it. the book setup is really good. I had to move the rear hubs in the forward position because it was a little loose on the track here but other than that it was dialed.

Well everyone can say what the like, but their opinion doesn't really mean much to you. You need to actually drive the car before you buy it. If you have driven the AE car and liked it, then go for it, but don't buy something because everyone else has one, or because they look pretty good.

I have tried driving the AE car before...it sucked in my opinion. But then I watch some on the track and they looked really good. It's all driving style. You have only done some of your research, you need to go out and drive some different cars before making up your mind.

I have a losi 2.0 but I retired it now im running a rc8b and I honestly like it better cause i can drive it harder and it doesn't get sloppy like the losi I had alot of problems with the losi shock shafts kept pulling out turnbuckles kept pulling out and pushing in other then that car is pretty good but i like my rc8b and with all the hop ups you get you can't go wrong with the kit

I've got the RC8 rs and the only things I have broke are the original front upper arms, and steering rod ends. The arms have changed though and i have never broken the newer improved arms. Steering rod ends still do go pretty often, but that's only whenever I have a crash that looked like the entire buggy should have been destroyed.

The 2 things you should order though are plenty of steering rod ends, a D8 fuel tank, and a new set of upper front arms, and a screw kit. The front screws that hold your shocks on do bend pretty easy.

I've got about 8 gallons on my buggy since I've had it, and for those few parts that have broke, I would have to say that it is very durable. And believe me, I have ran my RC8 as hard as anyone, and had bigger crashes then I thought possible for a car to survive.
