I bought my original 8ight from somebody who bought it used, from somebody who bought it used. The original mach 427 (started life as a RTR) was pinched 3 times and still runs good, so say 8 gallons a pinch times 2 (just got another pinch) is approx. 16 gallons (I ran it for 10 gallons), 2 gallons from a modded 427 and 3 gallons from a v-spec. Yes, I know, I run way too much. And I havent replaced a drivetrain part yet.

The main thing is, you haven't driven a Losi. Don't bag on it until you have tried it. I have nothing bad to say about the Mugen, other than Losi is more popular than Mugen around here so parts are much more readily available.
yeah chris. if i can get one at theat price, i might go ahead and get one. Either that or a mbx6t
