I will say that you cant go wrong with ether one some guys
hear that have ran losi now run associated and the other way around
The guys that are tale happy, are likely runnning 5-5-5. I felt the same way with my RC8, so i switched to 5-5-3, and it is all good.

Both cars are great. I've driven both. I currently have the RC8 it seems to suit my driving style better. Car is very responsive and even though the 2.0 is leaps and bounds better than the 1.0, it still seems a little bit on the sluggish side.

For some the RC8 maybe to 'twitchy' but i'm a pan car racer so i like the steering response.

If I were to choose, i would base it off what track layouts you are going to run. I've even considered having both and changing cars when i am at a "losi" track or a "rc8" track

I can't give any comparisons because I have not driven an RC8B. But I do own an 8ight 2.0 and I love that thing. There is nothing that I hate about owning this buggy. Its tough as nails and is very easy to work on. Support for these is top notch as well.

I have driven losi truggys for about 2 years now and just recently started driving a 2.0 buggy as well. I have never driven a buggy before and I have raced this 2.0 buggy 2 times. I qualified well both times 4th and 5th and at the last race I was up a whole lap when I suffered 2 flame outs. I caught back up to finish 3rd. There were 30+ buggys entered in this class so I would have to say the Losi 2.0 buggy treats me well.
