Neal does do some good engines, at least the couple that I have seen but I am loving the new OS XZ line of engines and a 2060 pipe. You couldn't ask for smoother.

No to offend anyone, but I would compare those prices before you say "way cheaper"....Kyosho parts are very competitively priced........

So for every mp9 part that has worn, how many of the losi parts get replaced? 3,4,6???

1 mp9 arm to 8 losi arms??

And for the guy who said 1 mp9 arm for every 8 8ight arms is a lie because i have owned an rtr 1.0 and owned a raceroller 1.0 and ran one year with no broken arms.just don't crash as much.

What the hell do people do to the 8ight 2.0 to need to replace parts that much? It has been a very inexpensive car to maintain for me.

That's what i'm wondering,losi arms never break,except for their 10th scale.

We had to replace rod ends and bushings after 6+ gallons on the Losi, other than that really nothing else. Still had to do that with the Kyosho too.

the kyosho is a excellent car too drive and durability is good too,
i would personally recomend the mp9,your best bet would be too wheel both cars and decide that way, im sure there would be plenty of guys willing to let you have a few laps of there cars unless they are twats

I was asking a question,(if you read my post you see question marks in there)not that, that is the way it is. I hear losi is so sloppy after 1 race and others so no.
and I didnt say anything about the Losi breaking parts/arms.

There are 5 guys at our track that run Losi out 6 or 7. I know they dont break much,considering they do not crash alot like I do, and I dont break with my RC8T FT.

after one race no losi doesnt get sloppy but it doesnt take long espially on a truggy even the guys who own a 2.0 buggy/truggy i hear say it gets sloppy.

if they say it doesnt they are lying.
