Yes and no. It is very much the size of an 8th scale buggy, but mechanically not the same as an 8th scale buggy. It has a small block engine, and overall smaller, lighter construction. Again this is all assuming it is based on the Ten-T which it sure looks like. If it isn't, then disregard everything I have said.

No ur 100% correct but the argument has been its 1/10th which its not its a ten-t with a longer chassis, buggy wheels, and some stuff to scale it a size up. It defanitly is a ten-t but instead of it being called a ten-b they had to bring a lil more to the table considering the ten-t was a fail for the most part. The small block in a 1/8 buggy is stupid imo but maybe it can be converted same with shocks. If its half price of a regular losi 2.0 and it can be converted with lil stuff then i would say its worth just to buy and play with.

Well I have heard from a few different people in the hobby about this... Some say 10th and some say 8th.... On the Losi page, they also say both.

Normally I buy a new kit every year but with all the hop ups I have on the 2.0 Truggy, I will probably just re-build it this year and fully deck her out.

With all the spares I just need a chasis and some shock towers to build a new kit lol. Probably upgrade to a BCE chasis for next year, mine as well.

Frank, did you have to do any major changes to the setup after adding the BCE chasis?
