well it depends on what you want to use it for racing or bashing if racing i would sugest the losi 8t not the revo if your bashing then the revo is a basher truck for sure. even though they do race mts at some tracks but not alot. so depends on what you want to do with your new truck either way they are good trucks so have fun.

Will you race or bash?
Or both?


If only racing, the Losi, if bashing, get the E-Revo.

I sold my E-revo to get teh RC8T and threw a MMM 2200 combo in it. I like it ten times more than I ever liked my erevo. That goes for racing or bashing it.

Get what ever you want, all the cars are capable. Just stay 1/8th scale. The Revo is nice but the truggy will be mor fun.

Check out the F8T from Caster Racing.

+1 for the Losi though since I'm an AE guy I would reccomend the FT RC8T with the E-Conversion. But realy just get what you want to drive and have fun!

I will def. look at the caster but I think I can get a Losi 8t 2.0 for around 550, and the rc8t is relatively the same. Not completely sure yet though. The more responses the better! Thanks
