Do not waste your money, parts are hard to get and you will have NO support from LHS.

I would strongly suggest the Losi 8T RTR - Best in its class on the market PERIOD

If money is a strong concern and you just cant live without a RC then


Team Associated RC8T-RS Race Spec RTR 1/8 Truggy

If you already have an ae buggy then get an ae truggy. No reason to have multiple brands. That just means extra parts to stock. I bet the ae truggy and buggy share some parts in common. So might cost a little more up front but it pays off on the back side.

I have the RC8T RS which is the RTR and if you have the buggy you should get the truggy they are VERY! similar. If you have a controller and engine I would buy the kit. It's a lot better machine. My buddy has the AE buggy and he's loaned me parts more than once to keep me going and vice versa. I would run the same brand if you run both it will make your life a lot easier!

Only complaint I have is how heavy my truggy is but it still performs well and I'm competitive with it at the club level.

Search Truggy Opinions with the search function on this site and you'll see the thread I had last week. Any of the Truggy's mentioned there are good platforms but as far as which is better, everyone will tell you what they run is the best....

I've drove mine and a MBX6T M-Spec. I'm not the best driver so I really couldn't tell a lot of a difference except the Mugen was lighter and a little more nimble.
If you go with AE, Losi, Mugen, X-Ray, Kyosho, Hot Bodies, or O'Donnell you really can't go wrong IMO. At least that's what I'm told I don't have exp. with all of them.

I would say there are better options available to you.
