Default Losi Eight 2.0 RTR vs Losi 810 RTR

The eight...
Has a starter box
Has a "high end" radio
Generally has beter stuff included that its cheaper model the 810.
HOWEVER the 810 is lighter, Will this make it run around a track beter? Will it effect the durability?
Thanks.

The 810 isn't really an 8th scale buggy. I think it's close. But it comes with a small block engine to start.

If you are looking to start racing with 1/8 buggies, I would definitely get the 8ight 2.0 RTR

You will be much happier with the 2.0. if you intend to race! If your just looking for back yard fun try the 810

For sure will be racing the hell out of the machine. My friend just wants a cheap way in. The 810 does make the roar specs for 1/8 buggy.

I understand where you are coming from but if you go cheap your going to get very frustrated with the car. Id do your best to get the good stuff you'll be much happier and have a much better time! But its hard to drop a Grand into a car.
