Default looking for advice on RC8e

i know its a long way off but with income taxes im going to get a RC8e and i was wondering if i should get the FT RC8 and convert it or get the RC8e and just go with that, im thinking the FT RC8 is the way to go, its a lil bit more money but it already has ALL th FT upgrades on it, was just wanting your pinions on this. Just FYI it will be getting the Tekin RX8/1900kv T8 motor, with problly JR servo, not sure on the servo yet, i will be running it on 4S

I've heard buying the nitro then converting it is the best way.

I basically have the same setup you have or will have, just need my dang zippys to get here...

The RC8B FT is the one you want, if you want to convert it.

But the RC8E is an awesome car as well, its everything you need/want for a 1/8th E buggy.

I plan on getting a few of the RC8B parts for my RC8E, like the shock towers and suspension plates.

my preference was the tekno conversion for the RC8 due to the availablity to run the clutch and brake bias...

and the kit was top notch
