Default XXX-S or Sprint

Alright got both looking to build one up for racing only and one for bashing, right now ive got a novak brushless in my sprint, runs real strong takes alot of abuse but as the sprint does not seem to have as much "love" in the aftermarket...XXX-S seems a little lighter but not as strong but tons of aftermarket for it....

Just looking for an opinion really, ive got a ta-01 also but planned on using that for my son to get into r/c cars..

Get the BRP lower front bumper guard for best initial hit protection for the suspension components.

use the xxx-s for racing and the sprint for bashing, as u get more tuning options standard in the losi. plus it has ball diffs.

Hate to bring this up...But, having two of the same cars might be significantly better for the future development of both drivers and for combining spare parts inventories. This thought applies to a 'race team' scenario.

no real question, just go for the xxx-s for racing, the options are huge
most of the best upgrades are the G+ components. most of the upgrades you want will be determinded by your style of racing, from your signature it seems that you might be wanting to go drifting, so that might involve some different ones to those used in convential races

For the XXX-S, get the BRP front bumper and look into rigging up some BRP nerf wings on the side. When you bang the boards they take up the slack instead of counting on your carriers not to break which they will. We did this conversion when I ran a XXX-S and it really made a difference.
