+1. A good friend just picked up a MBX5T PS and has spent more time waiting on parts and repairing then running. My 8T takes the same abuse on the same track and just smiles about it. Losi FTW.

Any of the kits mentioned will come with their own set of problems. Best thing you could do is see what your track is more filled with so you can get support and parts if you ever break. If you're going for big name companies that are frequently used for racing, then you're on the right track. It also helps if you don't crash alot.

I agree with these guys about the consistancy. The losi 2.0T is an absolute dream on the track. It is very easy to drive fast and consistantly.

And for the durability issues alot of the talk comes from assembly defects. And I agree that the losi QC has dropped the ball lately, but once you get the stupid little problems worked out of it they are bullit proof. It was the same deal with the 1.0. It had it's issues from the start, but once you resolved them the truck would treat you well. In the 2 years that I raced my 1.0, I don't think I broke a single plastic part, wait check that, I did break a rear hub when I cased a big double, but that was seriously probably the only part. Yes the losi's may wear more quickly than others, but they just don't break. I think it is really a trade off. Harder plastic wears less, but breaks more easily, while softer plastic wears easier, but is extremely hard to break. I will take a lil' wear over massive carnage any day. Wear won't put you out of a race.
