That's what we all wish for...
Do you remember your first RC car? And that favorite RC car you had years ago?

The D8T is very durable and the cheapest priced of the bunch.

Good luck on your choice.

D8t is the least expensive, and very durable. Losi 8T also very durable, but litle more harsh on the wallet. No experience with te mugen mbx6t, but I did have a 5t wich was vey durable. I know the 6T had arm issues, I am not sure if they fixed the issue yet or not.

I own the 8t and the D8t, I choose the D8t for my race rig.
Hot Bodies D8t- Clockwork JL 21/ AB mods C6, JP-1, Spektrum DX3R, JR servos, AKA tires
Hot Bodies D8- RB WS7 III, GRP 2053 pipe, Spektrum DX3R, JR servos, AKA tires
Losi 8t 1.0 mostly upgraded to 2.0 via ebay- RB C5, dynomite 086, spektrum DX3S, orion servos, AKA tires
Muggified LST- Teal head 427, RD logic pipe, JR servos, panther tires

I have a sweet Xray XT8 09 spec that I'm about to list for sale. You won't beat Xray quality and it's one of the best handling trucks out there.
Thanks to my sponsors and friends
