If there is anything this thread shows you, it's that everyone has some type of bias, mixed with a little speculation and topped off with a double-helping of misinformation.

Honestly, no one is going to give you a straight answer. Pick which one you like, and go for it. All of them have their highs and lows, but all of them should be competitive.

Hilarious... This couldn't be closer to the truth...

FTIW, I've run the 8T 2.0 for 3 years and the ST-RR for the last year. Both are amazing, but neither have brought me the illustrious ROAR National Championship.

In all seriousness, you'll finally pull the trigger on a rig and love it. After a couple of seasons, you'll get bored and try something else. Most of that decision will be influenced by what you've seen at the track and what your buddies are running.

Well if you want something more stable and wide than ethier the D8T or the Eight 2.0 Truggy will fit your match.

Light weight i would say the Mugen MBX6T. Il be honest though theres pros and cons with lightweight buggys or Truggys on track surfaces and how hard you will be able to drive them.

Now me i like some more weight on my Truggys.

if you are bashing, the .28 will be fun. if you plan on racing, you will get tired of the 5-6 min. pit stops and any truggy will be hard to control with it. step it down to a .21 for racing.

Light weight never hurt anything when the suspension was setup correctly.

Default Losi 8ight 2.0 150%

Get the Losi 8igth 2.0 RTR, is durable, awesome handling, great power, comes with good radio, and easy to get parts. Hell, we raced ours right out the box and almost won the A main at a local track. (Ran out of gas on last lap... my fault)
