Default XXX-T RTR Vs. XXX-T MF2

Hey guys. I was wondering if the xxx-t mf2 is worth getting over the rtr? The rtr says it comes with a ball diff and bearings all the way around. I know that the mf2 comes with threaded shocks and cvds and the graphite but is that the only difference? If it is then it pointless to bulid the kit. Can you guys tell me about each of them please. Thanks.

The mf2 also has Ti turnbuckles, a gen 2 trans, white ballcups, and ti-nitride shock shafts

gen II has lower CG and improves forward traction. But Losi is going back to the gen I wich comes in the rtr, the xxxcr buggy comes with the gen I

I think the RTR is based off of the MF1, while theres not a huge difference between the two trucks, the MF2 has a little lower internal ratio, and the transmission can be seen from the bottom plate, probably to overcome the larger diff gear. I had both a MF1, and MF2, really felt like I was sort of taken by all the hype of the MF2, my MF1 was dialed in and there was nothing wrong with it. I'd say if your budget it tight, dont want to build, or will mostly bash with occasional racing, there is nothing wrong with the RTR. If your going all out racing, want the best, want to build......wait a little while because word is that there will be a XXXCR-T, or whatever letters they use to replace the MF2. Seems like since Kindwald and Francis are not around much they are updating there offroad series without anyones name.

the mf2 has a inner hole and a outer hole on the arms, thats what vla is.
the rtr is good car to run because it uses the tranny that the cr has,but the only changes that you would want to make are the mf2 arms and hubs for the front, and cr hubs for the rear.
go to teamlosi .com and check out the info on the mf2 and rtr

Dont put CR hubs on the MF2, its a pain to make them work and it doesnt handle that great with them on.
