Wait for the new Losi 1/8th scale I haven't heard anything or seen any thing and I don't think they are even making one but when they do it will be awsome!!!
I Don't understand ppl who spout off on stuff they haven't driven, seen or is even made yet.
I own 2 Proceeds and it still is a very competitive car. That being said I bought them because it was a good deal and came with enough parts and tires for me to run it for years! For me our local hobby stores don't support any 1/8 scale on-road so it's all mail order. Delta inc.
still supports the proceed even though they have thier own car now. Even tower hobbies carries parts for it so check out what car you can get parts and support for that should be what is the deciding factor.
I wouldn't just look at these two cars though: the Evolva, 950r, SMP Slide and Delta's new car the XP4 all deserve some research!
Have fun! 1/8 scale is the most fun I've ever had with an R/C car!my .02
