Cool RC8.2FT or 8ight2.0

I'm getting back into racing after being gone for awhile and looking at both of these cars but I'm leaning more to the rc8.2. What are the differences between the two besides the obvious and what's a good engine to go with. Good bottem end but a screamer on the straight.

It comes down to your LHS, I would go with the one with stocked parts. Personally, I had both and I like the Losi a little better but their is NO big advantage in either buggy. For motor wise, it depends on you budge really. I run a B5 Pro ($250) in my Losi 8ight 2.0 which provides tons of low end torque but also will scream with the best like Nova. If money isn't an issue, go with the Nova Bonita....

From owning a losi eight 1.0 buggy and a 1.0 truggy with Some 2.0 parts on it now with a RC8TCE i would say the RC8.2FT for various reasons.

Hell man you will only get bias views on here anyways so just pick and choose there all good and whatever you can afford . All of them do drive diffrent though reguardless.

I've had both and right now Im running the 2.0. I think the RC8B is built better and twice as easy to work on. The 2.0 needs more maintaining but it's easier to drive. I kinda wish I kept the RC8.
