Default Losi 8ight 3.0 pricing

$699 from Horizon Hobby. Unless I just love the 8ight 3's handling I am going for the Mugen MBX7 or XRAY XB9. Not knocking the 8ight 3 at all. It just seems a bit overpriced. Buy a Mugen and you are done, buy a Losi and you still have to spend another $200 on hop up parts to get to the Mugen's quality.

Oops, wrong forum.

Wow that is steep & they were on the high end of pricing with the 2.0 compared to serpent/xray/mugen.. Not to mention all the extra hop ups many folks bought..

Guess I'll be sticking with the 2.0 until I'm forced to upgrade.
