How did you go from the fastest RTR nitro on the market to a losi truggy? The losi truggy is not even close to the fastest RTR car on the market. That title would have to go to Traxxas and Schumacher although both are useless for anything other than speed. Sure would be fun watching your dog trying to keep up with either of them though.

Not only is this the OFF Road thread... but he stated he wanted something fast, off road, stable, durable, best starter package, and was leaning toward the LOSI RTR buggy. The buggy is a great vehicle but a lil twitchy. I would never push anyone to get a Traxxas vehicle, especially with the package Losi offers. Do the math. With roller $700, Spectrum DX3S Tx/Rx $250, Motor/pipe @ $200, servos $100, AND starter box @ $100, don't forget the Rx battery $30. Thats $1380. When you get it all for $800 it's a pretty good deal. Granted you will want to upgrade it later it's a great deal and is definately a screamer. JMO... not THE definative answer...lol.

I agree that the best off road RTR package is either the losi 2.0 buggy or truggy. For racing or bashing you won't get better. The point I was trying to make is that his OP asked for the fastest RTR nitro off road package and that would be Traxxas Jato, or Schumacher Menace. So I guess we have gone away from fastest to most practical. I would not recommend traxxas or Schumacher to anyone over the Losi 2.0 but that wasn't the question. The question was fastest and that's why I was wondering how he ended up with a losi truggy. Not that it's a bad choice at all.

Thanks guys. Yes the Jato was just sold because of the 2WD and lack of traction... That's what I'm leading towards losi buggy or truggy rtr... If you have any suggestions on a faster rtr please advise.
