I have driven the XXXNT Sport and it is a pretty good kit right out of the box. I have never driven an Associated GT but am willing to bet it is the exact same way. I suggest you go your local dealer and see if it would be possible to try one out. If not, try the local track to see if someone would be willing to let you try thiers. Most racers are willing to help someone get involved in rc and are all to happy to show thier own trucks and how they handle.

Going with what i have read on this board i would pick the Losi. Seems to have less problems. Read this thread below.

Actually if you do a little more research you'll find that the RC10GT is very durable. Some feel that the XXX-NT is not so durable. Having owned both I have the agree, the GT was almost bullet proof while the xxx-nt seemed to handle better but broke more often. These are just my observations. You really can't go wrong with either truck Also check out the threads on rc car actions site. They have specific threads for diffrent brands of cars.

Default re:

pkranger is right. the xxxnt handles waaaay better on the ground and in the air, but the rc10gt is more durable. the thing is you could hop up the xxxnt with graphite parts and durability will increase. and it will still handle good. i've driven both and i say go with xxxnt. the hop ups are fairly cheap, and it's race ready right out of the box.

If I am not mistaken the Adam Drake edition of the xxx-nt comes with graphite parts. Remember though while graphite is stiffer (good for handling) it wont flex in a crash like some of the softer materials. Its always a trade off
