Losi 8ight Buggy or truggt which one is better ?

Ra y says:

The price is way too much for this. I don’t see with all these plastic parts and single gear transmission where exactly the 620$ tag fits in. I’m driving a HSP Backwash Nitro buggy which costs me about 160$ and even my car can square up to this.

Used to dick around with my trusty Carson specter 1. Went to the track once, for fun, saw what they drove there. Returned with a used MBX6. Best descision. The Specter was a reliable, unbreakable car but, lets face it, it never was a good handling car. Max steering angle, packaging, weight, Geometry, Shocks, and not to mention that elephant of a 4.1 cc Force engine. Sucking fuel like no tomorrow.
Got a pretty good deal on a mbx6 with an os v-spec on it. Oh boy, it is a different world.

BennyDawg1 says:

Would this thing be durable for bashing? I really want to find a name brand nitro car durable for bashing. I’d prefer an 1/8 buggy but really anything besides a short course truck. Anyone have any recommendations for me?

brandon bentley says:

I admit the following is what i observed at the local track and not first hand. A fella i race with has raced his losi8 original fully optioned out for years, great buggy. Well he has two twin boys about 12 i think. He bought them the rtr and they were unable to break it for many weekends. They bent the front upper solid turnbuckles but their dad just switched em out from his spares box right at the track. I would recommend this buggy, also about 75% of the guys i race with race this platform in some form or other.

May Bunni says:

Is this good as a first rc. Or should i get the traxxas rustler nitro

The Thunder Tiger EB4 S2.5 is much cheaper. A race chassis and a non race engine (.28) for €200 on sale from germany.

Jake Tunnell says:

faze ginger 123 says:

What if they made a car that was nitro/electric

manish dhaya says:

is there best nitro rc car more than losi
reply asap

RC Hobbyist Extreme says:

The first issue I see is no bumper system up front. Call me stupid but face it, you WILL hit something by accident sooner or later. I know a guy that just bought one and already destryed the front gearbox by hitting it by accident. How hard is it to even offer a bumper system. I hear him saying things about optional parts to make things better,really? I dont know about you but when I buy something, the last thing I want to do is run back out and have to buy additional parts. Listen carefully to whst he says, I suspect you will agree with me, this car wouldnt be my first choice in Nitro RC cars.

j0nnyism says:

I much prefer kits. That way youre getting hand on experience on its tolerances. Although i always appreciate pre cut lexan bodies

Maurice Mcneil says:

It’s nice and all but my exceed Madfire has more aluminum on it then this

Calyn G says:
