See it seemed like the exact opposite for me. I had to let off the throttle almost completely to turn my 2.0. Although I was pretty fast with it. I love the 2.0 truggy.

Lol that just goes to show what difference setup makes. I drove the way I liked it. I have since changed my driving style and like my car to be more balanced.

The 2.0 is a great truggy and it turns ok. Then I decided to try a Mugen truggy and if you want serious turning the 6t is it. The 6t is also very lite. Idk if that has anything to do with it but I would say that my Durango buggy weighs a little more then the 6t. The 6t is defiantly more responsive then the Losi was.

I had quite a lot changed, can't remember what it was though. It's been a year since I had my hands on a 8-T.

well, if the weight is just in onces on truggys than it shouldnt be a big deal than i mean the rc8t is a good seller so it must be good and competive with the other truggys.

i think its just all in how the weight is distubed most truggys the engine is toward the front and the fuel tank also.


you, know i wouldnt miss the outdoor season im getting it in early march .
but yea really its just how you set each truggy up really and im just a club racer anyways listening to other club racers .

im not sure about my driving style but i like turn in and steering not to much and not to twichy mostly .

Weigh your tires...some tires are so much heavier that they can turn a light truggy into a heavy truggy.

Coming from motocross has helped me alot for R/C. Like line choice and especially jump and throttle timing. Just because bikes are bigger doesnt mean they are completely different. The are actually quit similar only truggies are 1/8 scale. Dont be so quick to judge.

I didn't say they handle or jump the same way, I am saying the physics of both is the same...
