Default Losi 8ight T 2.0

I was looking at this truggy 8ight T 2.0 and wondering how good it really would be for the backyard. Mainly real short grass with a few terraces to jump. My LHS does have a offroad track but i dont intend to race. I may would go ocassionally and just run the track for fun. But mainly this would be my backyard basher so to speak. Ive never had a truggy but i love the looks of this thing and also just fell in love with the radio system. Any insight how good this would be for me?

Does it do well in grassy type areas? As this will be my main conditions. I have some pretty good terraces to jump maybe around 3' or so nothing to give me 8' of air. Just mainly running fast around the field and jumping the terraces. If it will handle those type conditions then i will seriously consider the 8ight T 2.0!!

if the grass is short it will handle it just fine. remember its a truggy and ride height is pretty low.

i love my 2.0! its badass

I first owned the rtr and loved it but later got the kit. The kit is awesome. I enjoyed very much putting it together as u will learn the vehicle so much more. Also rtr electronics suck so u might as well start out putting what u want in the car from the start

Well I'm just not where I can put 1000-1500 in one right now. The rtr t2.0 is 695 since it's been discontinued the price has dropped a little on them. And I don't know I'd say the spectrum electronics that comes with it sucks. From what I've seen those electronics are some of the best for rtr.

electronics are good enough if u ask me. personally i love the telemetery with the temps. so much easier just looking at your radio insted of doing the measuring with the hand held temp gun. and an alarm sets off if the temps get to high. People are hating on the telemetery for some reason, but personally i love it

I understand where ur coming from. The 3.0 kit just came out for 599. U could do that kit with motor & electronics for about 850 - 900. U will have to upgrade servos very soon on rtr anyway & the spectrum radio/receiver has very short reach IMO. U will save $ buying a kit. Like I said rtr is a starting point but in the end it will cost u more. Just speaking from experience.

I do not agree. Stock Spectrum radio and receiver with telemetry are VERY good, still use them after two years. The servos are slow, but that's something normal in RTR.

The radio is not usually included in the "electronics" it is its own separate thing. To get a spektrum radio worth anything, you have to buy one of the expensive models though.
