Everyone needs to stop jumping to Conclusions before you even run THE Car. In THE Car thread JQ explains EVERYTHING. And how many tracks is there that you need to run full droop on anyway.

I am going to say THE Car just cause of the price point. I have not driven either car yet so thats my only reason as of now.

Default Who cares?

This whole Thread is ridiculous! It's like saying would you rather have a Ferrari or Lamborghini?! Most the people who comment on stuff like this do not have either vehicle

Get what you want, beat on it like it owes you money and enjoy!

Duranago is my choice though......

Define big bore. I decided to use 14.5mm diameter pistons because I found that they worked the best on my car. It is very light so the bigger shocks just didn't let the suspension work, it felt like a plank. Losi is 15mm and considered bigbore, THE Shocks are 0.5mm less, that 0.25mm difference on the radius. Not a whole lot, but it makes a difference.

I hate to bubble this back up again, but it has been brought to my attention that my issue with the driveline is exactly that, my opinion. I have not run the JQ car or even seen it in person; therefore, stating that it is a problem is incorrect. It's just my opinion.

The chassis on the 408 trully is a work of art not to mention the innovation elsewhere.

I feel I have picked the right car and I am sure others will say different...
You must hit thing @ full throttle or on your backside a lot never had an issues with breakage on any of my 8ights but thats 2.0's
