forgot to add that the owner of tekno tests all cars he makes e kits for and as far as e goes seems the losi is his favorite. hope it helps and remember all the cars out there are good just have to pick the one that fits you best make sure the support for the car you run is good at your local track

Comparing the RC8 with the D8.
The RC8 was just as fast, but was harder to drive and less consistent. It also broke parts easier and had Firorni hop ups.
The D8 needs the hinge pins from the old lightning (e clips) so it doesn't strip out the front bulkhead.
I have broken a rear hub, front diff case, front spindle. Wasn't due to lack of parts strength.
Front diff broke when I hit a pipe wide open a few times.
Front spindle broke after pogo sticking a huge double at Revelation Raceway (www.revrace.com)
Rear hub broke from running excessive droop.
The D8 is a real good car.
