Did I dominate ? Gee, Thanks !

I agree on the choice, not because im racing the 8ight T but it has been really durable and fast all year, I haven`t broken a thing on it or the buggy and have finished each Glorcs race too !
The parts are easily attained and the price is good also. I bought a wack of parts pre-season and haven`t had to use any other than clutch shoes & bearings, shock boots & shock ball ends.
We can also give You tips, things we found worked, even though the stock base set-up is very good !

The stock tires are pretty good too, these things are easy on tires also. I run Proline Bowties and Crime Fighters with good bite for almost all the tracks.

Never mind bashing, once You get that puppy out on a track You`ll be hooked !

I totally agree with the masses!

I run the RTR 8ight T, I LOVE IT, I used my stock tires all season, I only broke parts that were my fault;
-servo saver too tight-servos
-not installing the throttle servo horn right after replacing a steering servo-center diff(dew to break drag)
This truggy is amazingly tough, great deal, and the radio is an asset now a days. I still run the stock engin, and I have no complaints, now I dont have a chance of keeping up with Jordan and his ninja but I still feel like I am flying out on the track. also we are at opposit ends of the skill level as well
I WAS a born basher, since I bought the LOSI 8ight T early this summer, I have not been out bashing with my savage once!!!
I also bought the us sports buggy this summer as well...I have sold it about a month ago!!!

The 8T made me a better racer instantly as it is very predictable. The truck jumps and corners better than a buggy.

Parts support is outstanding in southern ontario - I know Skycraft Hobbies, as well as other shops have almost everthing you need ..... and a lot of upgrades for the RTR

The only problem is i don't want to spend a ton of money but i don't want to cheap out and not be satisfied. My friend bought a RTR Firestorm and can barely get it to idle and i don't want to be in the same boat. I also like to do a bit of bashing on the side so i would like something fairly quick and rugged.

So far i have two options:
8IGHT-T 1/8 4WD RTR w/ DX2.0 by TeamLosi

I like the design and the features of the 8eight (Like the DX2.0) but the Inferno is much cheaper. There are other things i don't like about the Inferno such as the pull start engine as opposed to the Spin-Start in the 8ight.

I would really appreciate some info as far as engine life, quality, speed and just overall performance. If anyone else has any suggestions on other trucks i could purchase that won't break the bank but give me a lot of power, fun and lifetime it would be greatly appreciated.

glad to here u had fun.also it was nice talking to u and gramps.hope u guys are alright.also the losi buggy or truggy rtr is the best way to go.hope to see u out soon.if u need any more info call me on the track #416 873 5604.thanks and see u soon.
