I've driven all three and based on my experience, the D8T would be the clostest to the feel and handling characteristics of the Losi 8T2.0. The MBX6T is an awesome truggy in it's own right but doesn't have that free spinning drive train and sloppy feel as does the D8T and T2.0. What I mean by sloppy is the loosy goosy wobble in the wheels and axles. They seem to drive and handle better with some slop.

maybe its just me, but my Mugens are ALOT more free spinning drive train than my losi. however, the D8T i had was probably a little more free. O'donnell is the freest spinning drive train out of everything ive run. and on sloppy thing, i felt like the D8T needs a little slop but when it gets real sloppy like the losi it doesnt work as well. but with losi, the sloppier the better

I dont understand whats taking so long to get the losi. I bet if you would have ordered it from a creditable hobby shop you would have received it already.
Yeah pricey but worth it for some all the truggys out will perform well mugen does not handle close to losi k car does with more steering but yes expensive

Yes we can get Serpent over here.
In The recent Femca Truggy titles a sepent come in third over all I got a good chance to have a Close look at the serpent and I agree with MuggyDude If I wasnt driving Losi I'd Be driving a serpent for sure..

Any truck on the market today should work just fine for you. It's up to the driver and finding the setup you like.
I would choose something that had good support in my area and pull the trigger on the deal.

Good luck.
