Default Truggy MBX6T or?

I have been thinking about making myself a MBX6T converted to a E truggy. Just a little concerned over the price of the kit itself. Unless I could find one used.

Any other idea's of decent truggys that come E or can be converted with out much trouble and do not run 600 for a new kit.

There are always used ones on here and ebay. Then pick up the Eco conversion and you will be good to go. I see used ones go for as low as $225 on here...

The 8ight t 2.0 is still one of the top performing truggies on the market. I have two of them currently that I converted using the losi e conversion. They are fast, durable and handle great.

+1 on the above. At $300 for a new kit it's hard to beat. I personally went w/ the Tekno conversion kit for my Losi and love my e-truggy. I would buy another for a spare, but rarely break parts (jinx'd myself).

It is the losi 8ight for 299, you have to add it to your cart to see the price. They also have the EU version for 319.

Just checked Nitrowarehouse also has the Losi 8ight for 299.00. The 3.0 must be about the come out with such a big price drop.

Just ordered from my local Hobby store and they have it at the same price. Will be in Wednesday and no shipping cost to me and help keep there doors open as well as the track. To many places close because no one buys locally anymore.

Seems all Losi Kits are on sale right now, at least until the end of the week. Not just the truggy, also the buggy.

What is your local hobby shop's name? I'm in VA too and I know I've been through your town but can't remember where it's at. What's another big city close to you? Also where do you race at?

Would be Awsome RC, Located in fredricksburg, well really stafford right on route 17. They have a pretty nice track and you can find there race thread under the racing forum and find them under facebook under Awsome RC.

Dwane who runs the place is a decent guy and willing to help. Not like your avarerage place that just wants to sell you what ever and then have you come back for better when you find out you bought crap.
