I already have charger from electric lipo and transmitter but happy to upgrade. I am not totally new with gear but upgrading is about due. That is where the losi appeals and I can sell my old gear. Or go xray and slowly build while gathering good motor and gear.

Ive driven a box stock 2.0 rtr and it felt really good, and it was on a really really dry track and had stock tires on it that were 50% wore.. it actually still felt really good and it was really controllable even with the stock servos. Most people just eventually put the steering servo on throttle and get a good new steering servo. That and tires and you would be set besides the essential nitro stuff. If you wanted a kit now i would go with losi. And isnt xray coming out with a new buggy? Get the 2.0 and learn the ropes then sell that as a roller and use that money to pay for some of the new xray when it comes out and youd just need to transfer all the electronics/motor/servos over and youd be racing your xray

Well I bought a xray 808 and am currently putting it together. Now need to decide on a engine and currently looking at the fusions. Will be awhile before it is on the track. I still want the losi for curiosity but am happy my money is going towards the xray. But the money is only just beginning I think!!

My advice if this is your first nitro engine, don't spend a ton of money. I like most guys I have seen, trashed my first engine pretty quickly learning how to tune and not tune. I think my first engine made it 3 or 4 gallons, since then I can't get them to die.
