xxx-t = an electric truck made by losi which is outdated by the xxx-t mf2. soon to be outdated by the xxx-t cr.


xxx-nt ad2 = best xxx-nt2 version out. really not recomended to alot of begginers cuz you need to purchese a motor and you have to build it. this version is the newest version of the xxx-nt (besides the xxx-nt 2 rtr which is an ad2 but just all/most plastic parts instead of graphite.).

xxx-nt rtr- still a good nitro truck. outdated by the nt 2 verison.

but i suggest, if in price range:

xxx-nt2 rtr- new truck and awsome brand.


if you don't have enough money to buy this one, look at the nt 1.

http://www.teamlosi.com/Products/Def...rodID=LOSA0887

link for nt 2.

theres not alot of difference between the nt 1 and nt 2. one just has more options for set ups and stuff (which is the 2).

It is the ESCs that tend to heat up with brushless setups not the motors. The motors usually run pretty cool due to not having the drag of brushes. An well setup brushless system is almost maintence free.

although electric can be set up to be very fast around any track, to me it still feels like i'm playing around with something from radio shack.
