Default Which is the best AE 8.2 or The Car

I've really been wanting to change buggys, which one have of these 2 have anybody had the best issues with AE 8.2 or the car. Both look very cool noone at my track is running either. Or is the new team Durango the way to go?

Don't change cars if you're running the Losi!

I'm curious also more about THE CAR then the rc8 2.0, as I would like to try out the car in the near future. I think whats obvious of the 2 right now, is the car is most likely lighter and more narrow. Also it seems THE CAR has more adjustments, then the rc8B 2.0. I find (the car) more appealing then my losi, I guess that's why I wanna try one

I liked the Mugen also! For me it's either stay with my losi or jump to the car.. Just something about it (mad steering )

narrowness is only good for smooth track. when it gets bumpy wider is the one way to go... an look whos winning, AE, kyosho and mugen. all have wide layouts.

associated rc8b 8.2 buggy enough said not to mention the help you can get from others at most tracks.

I never understand why one buggy or truggy is good for one perticler surface than the other i mean you can setup any of them to run good on any surface

If you read his post, he said there are neither at his track. How do you know how good something is that you have not drove , not saying that the RC8 is bad as it is proven but I do find it interesting that you know so much on it and know it is better than The Car..

i did not say the the car buggy is bad or anything all i said was at most tracks you whould be hard to find somebody running that buggy at least at the tracks i been to in the northeast.

and no the rc8b/rc8tce are good not being bias other than yes there is a few things they could improve like the axle bones, and the plastic shock bushings.

When you make a bold statement of 'associated rc8b 8.2 buggy enough said' that is implying that it is superior. To me, the Associated is a proven platform that has had lots of improvements made since it was released, with getting it you would be buying youself something that will be setup very good out of the box with little things needed to tailor to your style. The Car, seems to be a nice buggy with lots of cool idea's and JQ is releasing lots of upgrade parts to improve it. If you like the handling of your Losi go with the JQ as it is close to the Losi, if you want something that will handle different, the Associated would be a good choice. Myself I really like my Serpent's I am just trying to get the buggy to turn a bit better but other than that I am very pleased with them.

i wouldnt say the "rc8b/rc8t" is superior lol but yea i get what your saying i used to own the 1.0 and the 1.0 t. And i dint like the way they drove i like the rc8tce a lot better driving and handleing wise but still tuning it to my liking with little tuning.

Trust me i whould get something else like a mugen or a GS, maybe serpent but intill i see more people run them to get setup help etc than its just two manfacters or better yet a track that sells them parts in thier trailer or store.
