Being new to racing and new to the RC stuff.. I found running Truggy much easier.. Not as easy to steer but much more stable for learning!~
Well I know that the Losi's have damn near been the standard in the B & T classes & I really like the fact that it comes with the Spektrum Controller....to me that almost makes it worth it, I don't really want to race without one.

That's actually what I was thinking, I will probably opt for the D8 for the end of this year & start saving for the Losi for next year, more than likely I will go for the 8ight-B since it's cheaper than the 8ight-T.

Truth be told, if I come home after spending close to $1,000 and only have 1 truck to show for it,lol

I'll be LUCKY if she lets me sleep on the couch
