The RTR Losi 2.0T is a great starter/race truggy. Later you can upgrade the servo horns and servos.

Thats a great truggy too! But you'd need everything to make it "RTR". The D8T is just a roller with no Motor/Pipe, Servos etc.

thats a good start. the losi comes with a good radio, starter box, motor, and electronics.
if you want to go with better electronics from the start and a better motor you can but i think you will still be hard pressed to get evrything for less than the losi.

Your right, it would be hard to get it all for under the price of the rtr. losi.

I'm in your boat with looking to get a new truggy but I'm not going the Losi route I'm going with the Mugen M Spec truggy where it's already built you just have to add the engine pipe and electronics. Definitely going to be more expensive build than the Losi.

Yeah its definatly going to cost a good bit to get a new truggy no matter how you go about it from what I have seen.

Even though the MSpec is prebuilt, you will still want to go through it early on and make sure that everything is assembled properly.

The losi 2.0 rtr is the best bang for the buck, everything you need to go racing and be competitive at club level is in the box. (and I am a Kyosho fan boy, but it is what it is)

The Losi is a good deal and is probably the best value RTR hands down but by the time you get it then upgarde the motor servos etc you will spend more than if you bought a kit and fitted it out yourself.

If its in your budget, buy new. If you're buying used, you need to know what to look for, buy from a reputable person and constantly check the For Sale Section
