Shure would be nice if you could spell out your words better. Put the phone down for a little while.

Its SURE, not shure

Lots of good reading here http://www.rctech.net/forum/nitro-of...ies-buggy.html

I have been thinking of getting one because of the price. Just do some research and you'll find your answers.

i will say the losi 2.0 is a good driving car i TQ my very first race with it but in my opinion the d8 is a more stable car and it handles rough terrian really good but i will be honest in stock form the 2.0 does accellerate a little faster but since i added the lighten drive train to my D8 the car is very fast off the line i can take tight corners and hit some jumps that alot of the guys driving the 2.0 cant and as for the cvd issues it all in how you maintance your equipment. but they are both good cars i just really like the D8 it just fits my driving style.
