Default Xray 808E 2009 vs. Losi 8E 2.0

So through trades and various purchases, I have aquired a Losi 8ight 2.0E and a Xray 2009 E with Elite RC conversion. My question is: Which will handle better? Obviously, i will try them both, though i'm leaning towards the losi. Thanks

From what I've seen and heard, either one would be a good choice. I'd give a very slight performance advantage to the Losi, but durability advantage goes to the XRay.

I love my nitro losi truggy, so that'll probably be what I go with. It's also much more an actual kit than the xray, which is justa hash conversion (not bad, but still).

Try em both and let us know. If the Xray was the 808e and not a conversion I think it would be my pick.

I would say the same thing, but i really don't want to bother getting all of the new 2010E parts for it. Costs enough already (Though, i may look into, because if i can sell my losi, I might have enough cash). Can anyone help me getting a parts list and estimated cost to switch to the 2010E model? Including chassis and motor mount, everything. Thanks
