I absolutely love my MBX6T! The Losi 2.0 also kicks butt! I wouldn't go as far as to say the MBX6T is a Losi copy. They are two well designed Truggies that will perform well in the hands of a good driver. It's 90% driver when it comes to winning anyways.

From what i'v seen and driven:
1. Losi 2.0, RC8T, MBX6T
2. Xray, Hotbodies
3. Kyosho, Jammin
4. Caster
5. Sh Z truggy

But its all illrelevant if you can't drive. If you're going to buy a truggy, just buy one of the newest models available, that's within your budget, and you can get parts for easily and then just gotta drive it. The Losi 2.0 i would say is by far the best RTR deal available, you get everything you need, a top notch radio, starter box, decent servos, and a super strong motor. RC8T RTR is also real good out of the box. Hotbodies is a great value, very cheap kit, but they handle great and are pretty durable. Kyoshos are always a solid choice, price is a little more than i'd like to spend. Mugen, lets face it is always a top contender, prolly the most durable on the market. Jammins are still competative, yet a little heavy still compared to others, but that can be fixed with a few aftermarket parts. Casters are good and so is the Z-Truggy.

Since you already have an SC8, Associated might be a good choice, they share many of the same parts, so you won't have to carry as much to the track

The mugen is by no means a copy of the Losi. How can it be a copy? It has pillow ball suspension, and the Losi has spindle type. radio tray has a different layout and the rear diff is totally different as well as others. I see no resemblence of any sort between the two.....they might handle similar but all depends on your set up that you run. Copy? no way. I've run both and both are really good truggys, the Mugen is just built more tuff in my opinion. I had less problems with anything breaking on the mugen (except for the front arms). The 2.0 RTR truggy is an excellent deal though.

Default my thoughts

my thoughts would say losi 8t 2.0 all the way but thats me and many others that i know i also like the mugen mbx6t only due to the newer geometry and setup ways u can use these at the track but unfortunately asking these sought of questions u may get byes answers but i like it but my driving style maybe far different to urs but i hope that u get a chance to go to the track and see whats racing and see what appears tunable and most parts avalaible for u in ur area and try ask the driver for advise im sure most drivers will help just remember wen there ranting ask the next driver as the cars can frustrate some drivers bite wen there cars not working

St-rr is my choice. Very durable but it's quite spendy. Havent broken a thing on that truggy and its so smooth. Losi, Associated, mugen, and kyosho all make great vehicles. Now its just up to you.
when in doubt, throttle out! braaap!
