Default revo 3.3, savage x 4.6, losi 8ight T 2.0

ive been trying to figure out which one of these to pull trigger on. I like all 3 but want the best. I run mostly field (grass) with jumps in the 4ft range. some of the field has some knee high broom straw but i dont have to go through it to run, most of area is mowed. I do have a sc track about 20 mins away at my lhs which btw is mostly traxxas bias. So im just trying to figure out which would. be best for what I do. I will be ordering next week. Thanks for advice in advanced!

Losi 8ight-T 2.0. Very durable for bashing, and has race ready DNA.

That is a dumb question..

If you ever want to run on a track, definitely the Losi..

A starter box is HIGHLY recommendable - it is the most reliable way to start a nitro engine. With pull starts and Rotostarts it's generally just a matter of time til the one-way bearing starts slipoing..

Get the Losi, and check around in the classifieds here and ebay and get yourself a used (or new, if you want) Mugen pit bag. It's an absolutely great thing to have - fits your box, tools, fuel, and whatever else, all with an easy handle. If you're handy with lipos, etc.., you can put a light lipo in your box and it won't be that heavy.. Get the Mugen pit bag.. One hand for your truck, the other for the Mugen pit bag which will have everything else..

Ok let me ask this ive seen some reviews on the starter box that comes with the 8ight T 2.0 that the belts break easy, is this true?

That could be. Eventually most people who run buggy or truggy end up getting the Ofna blue starter box.. It's good and very reliable. They've come down in price too, and can be found used as well..

It means the 8ight-T came from a whole line of race-proven vehicles.

I read that too when i just got the car. ive never had a problem with that. and if the belt should break you can get a stronger one of ebay for very cheap.

Get a 4 cell lipo to go with the starterbox. And Heat the engine when you are breaking it in. Its very tight and will most likely get stuck when you try to crank it the first times.

If the flywheel gets stuck when you are trying to crank it. Dont try to get the starter box to get it free. It wont work and what will most likely happen (happened to me) Is that the flywheel will be stuck and the starter box wheel will continue to spin and the wheel will get damaged by the stuck flywheel.

If you smell burned rubber and see smoke, stop!
