I have one. All I can say is that i'm happier than I ever was with my revo. The durability and performance of the truck is outstanding. The engine I put in mine is the Werks b7 .21 pro and it runs fantasticly. Let's just say that the guys at the lhs tell me how they don't see much anymore. But, not knocking the eight T. It's a Losi so I'm sure it's pretty good. I guess it all comes down to where you want to drop your dollars. I got the mugen because it's proven, and the eight T didn't come out yet. Personally I don't think the trucks are very different.

prospect vs 8ight T

I have the rtr 8ight T, my team mate has the Prospect, and he is a much better driver than I, and does Very well in races, I am a total newby and have a lot to learn, but still hold my own with this me it is the truck , not me!!!
I really think it all comes down to personal perferance.
But I do want to say, if you do decide to go with Losi and you already have DSM and a good engin, get the race roller, it has a lot stronger chassies, and a bunch of small things that make a difference on the track.

apples and oranges your comparing both great trucks. boths have a nice price tag And the biggest thing you should look at which will make or break your decision is parts support if everytime you break a knuckle u have to wait and order it from your LHS dont buy that truck get which ever car they have parts for.

If you don't want a parts problem and want a great truck the Mugen is the way to go. Once it's set up to what you like. You might adjust toe in or ride height. There are a few good starting set-ups as well. The Mugen is so durable. Ryan Maifield raced a MUgen a couple weekends ago and smoked everyone at the manufacture's cup. It was a week or so ago. There is a short video of him racing it. Incredible to watch. It on RC Car Action Website.

I'l leave the losi T info to others. Parts suppoet is a big issue from what I'v read. The handling of the T is great as well.

Either way they both are great handling and very fast around the track
