i bought mine when it was $400, now its 329$, one hell of a deal!. The 810 is a fun buggy. You'll like it for sure.

I swapped out the soft stock tires for a set of tires from a losi 8ight RTR. Ebay for $35 shipped.

I've gone through a few clutch springs and a set of clutches. The spring stretches pretty easily. My hobby shop stocks these. They are cheap versus buying the clutch and spring from losi(10$).

Overall, I would buy it again!

I ditched the 2-shoe clutch for this 3-shoe clutch system in my Ten-T. It's a better set-up than the 2-shoe system, it's tunable and the springs will last longer than the wrap-around style.

All-in-all, the 810/Ten-T platform is pretty solid and I'm really happy with it.


A few things that you will want to keep in mind is that the engine in the 810 is a small block (.20cu) and most true 1/8th scale buggies run big blocks for racing. The Losi engine is no slouch but it may be a little difficult to keep up with the big blocks. Also, you'll want to head over to the Losi forums and check out the tank mod tutorial so that you can run a 125cc tank as the stock tank only offers a ~5 min run-time.
