go associated.. t3 you can race and bash.. more durable than a losi.


umm if you wanna just beat the crap out of a truck and get used to driving one. traxxas.. for sure. had one for six years.. never broke a thing except for a spur gear.. it was a electric rustler.. i wouldnt go past a better esc and motor for it though.. not worth upgrading. then when you get into racing look into the higher end models. ae losi...

im not a big fan of losi but i do admit they have one helluva kit out. rtr. digital radio. brushless esc and motor. on a xxxt. for around 330 bux. add it up

digital remote 90 bux
truck 150 bux
brushless 160

those are lowball numbers too

Wow tough one... I used to be a diehard losi guy but after I got my Revo my thought on traxxas has changed. Traxxas rtr kits are hard to beat with they're butter start system. Team losi seems have better electric race vehicles thou......... So I say traxxas for nitro and Losi for electric ..........does that help? prolly not

I have owned 2 Traxxas Stampede's and 1 Revo
& have owned 1 xxx4, 1 xxx4 g+ and 1 xxxt mf1 and Losi would be for racing and either one for bashing. Best part about Traxxas is there parts are cheap and are everywhere

Cheers

haha.. have u even owned a losi EP vehicle or raced one?

Anyways,

need to be more specific... nitro or EP... racing or bashing?? buggy or truck... i know for me if i had to pick between the 2... losi all the way... because i don't really consider traxxas raceworthy....

My pick.... buy an AE product...

If you had to ask this question, that must mean you do not race competetively. So for you I would recommend the traxxas. However, if you plan on racing to win, get the losi.

I Got IT! Why dont you just buy one of each!! Then you could tell yourself which is better. Because this thread will go forever with opinions from everywhere. Oh, and I would prefer JConcepts but Losi is nice too, and even the traxxis is solid too but They are all great but depends what you want to do with it.
