Default Sparrowhawk xb/xt vs Lx1e

Okay guys, I'm trying to decide between these two. I know ones an 8th scale and the other's a 10th but that's okay. I'm looking for someone who owns one of them to help me out here. I don't race since theres no track anywhere near me so I just like to jump and have fun. I've done a fair amount of research on both of them and from what I can tell they're both pretty durable and have good internals. Any thoughts? Thanks guys.

I have heard pretty good things about the LX1e. There is probably a bigger following and more parts support too. Only thing I would upgrade on it would be add some big bore shocks.

I dont have the LX1E, but I do have the Sparrowhawk. Nothing even absolutely compares to a 1/8th buggy. Startup cost is a bit higher, but they are always tough and handle more power way better.

I'm in the process of selling most of my 1/10th offroads and just having my 1/8th scales.

Okay so the Sparrowhawk is out then, but i did find another 8th scale buggy that looks pretty nice it's a Caster Racing Fusion EX-1. I've never heard of caster before. Anybody know anything about it?
