Thumbs up Dm1 e or GTPe?? Which one should I go with?...

Hey guys! Looking to get one of the two 1/8 Ofna Electric On-Roads! Ofna DM1e or the GTPe???
They both look well built! Any input to help me decide? Couldn't find anything that compares the both cars.
I know the DM-1e is a newer model with the cantilever upper front suspension and adjustable swaybars. But does one actually out handle the other by far or offer way more better features? I actually like GTPe's chassis layout. Looks more traditional 8th scale (suspension, chassis etc.) In which to me, already has been proven.

Anyhow, definitely looking to do high speed runs, and occasional parking lot courses with the guys. I'm sure both would be great. Any info would help... Just thought I'd start this thread for those who already own em, and for enthusiast like me barely getting into them.

Cheers! Jase

Anyone have any opinions on this. I'm about to sell my XO-1 and get a 1/8th scale on road car. Was doing speed runs with my rc8be but would prefer a dedicated onroad car for that.

I have the XO-1 and GTP , personally wouldnt sell my XO-1 for the GTP .. You can buy a roller for under 200 , throw in some electronics and off you go .

LOL, that's not helpful man. I already have too many RC's as it is. But the way I am, I'll probably do what you said if I can find a deal on a roller.

i had a GTP2e and sold it in favor of a DM1-e. Sold the DM1-e when i realized it was WAY too low slung for the driving i do (just on the streets not prepped courses). Now im back in a GTP2e.

I personally don't like the front suspension lay out of the dm1 that's why I got the gtp2

Well maybe I'll hang on to my XO-1 a little longer. I just wish it had more aftermarket support but that will probably come. Also scared of crashing this because I know how much it would cost to replace. GTP2e roller is like $150 used while an XO-1 is $300+ if you can find one.

I did hit 85mph today without really even trying. Definitely crashed though, lol. Luckily there's only $7 in damage and some scrapes all over the place.
