Frankie Losi 2.0 is a great buggy for sure but it doent fit everyones driven style. AE, Mugen, Serpent, Xray, and all the major companys now make great cars but they all fit diff driven styles. So yes the Losi 2.0 is a good racing buggy for sure.

I'd like to see a break down of the different driving styles and what car/make fits that best.

I like my losi it can be driven hard if it is set up correctly. But it is very durable and suffers very few DNF's. Personally I dont like the pillow ball setup hat Mugen uses I wish they would change, but that is my personal opinion. The AE car seems a little twitchy but I havent driven one personally, that info is from a buddy I race with who went from AE to Losi. One thing about the Losi car is they are everywhere so there is always someone at the track with parts.

Of the cars currently on the market; it's probably the easiest to setup and be reasonably quick with it.

Having been in the hobby for many years, I can honestly say I have never seen or driven a car like the Losi 2.0; where you can take it nearly anywhere and hand it to nearly anyone with reasonable driving experience and the car will do well. All with ONE setup.

That is highly commendable for a platform to be extremely adaptable with only minimal adjustments and tire selection.

I don't think any car on the market quite has that ability.

The AE, Mugen and Kyosho are good. But they drive a little more "classic". Drive them hard and fast; but they bite you hard and fast if your setup isn't quite right.

I'd say the AE does a little better on large tracks; the Mugen a little better on rough/tight tracks.

Despite all the cars, it's still 90% driver

The 2.0 is not a good car to race with, its a good car to kick a.ss and lap people with! And it will stay together while you are doing it

I had my first race ever with it on the weekend and it was very easy to drive handled the jumps quite easily and nothing broke. I am totally new to 1/8th racing as well.

Asking if the Losi is a good racing buggy is like asking if a bear sh*ts in the woods.

It is a good racing car. Just like Xray, AE, Mugen, Agama.

The only thing I don't like about the Losi is that it wears faster than my Mugen.
