team associated RC8b
team Losi 8ight 2.0 and 8ight 2.0 EU
Hot bodies D8
if any of you have raced these, do u like it?...best bits and bad bits? ect..
Try one before you buy- These threads always happens-Not being rude and it involves everyone saying get ... Because they run it.. do some searching and try before you buy ideally.. or Go to your local track, and see what most run. As you will get more buy this buy that.. Which will send your head into a whirlwind.
Just asking how come you not thinking of Mugen, Xray ect... as there are more £ but the quality is the best..
Now my part-go XRAY!

Depends on too many factors to be a simple choice.
1 Driving style
2 Availability of spares
3 Does anyone you race/will race with have one of your choices (for setup help and "sharing" of spares ie if you haven't got one your mate might.
4 How many people where you will race have them? For the same reason as number 3 really (KMRC used to be a "Mugen Track" for example)
5 Try and have a go of each as well.
and thats just for a start.
no real reason to why not mugen or xray.....just from all literature, mags and races i have been to. for example i went to the deerdale nationals last weekend...i noticed possibly a majority were running Losi 8ight and RC8B's....
I understand theres loads of factors to think about i.e driving style....
thing is having not used a rc car on a track before I have no idea....I would say im an agressive-ish driver....but then on a track I could find that dosent work for me specifically and I am alot smoother ect....
what im worried about is going and spending alot of money on the best kit for an agressive driver and then find its not right for me....
You can adjust setup etc on all the top brands to suit your style so to speak so wouldnt worry to much there. I think seeing what the local drivers are running at your track will help as they can then offer advise and sometimes spares if you break something
All the top brands of buggy are all very good now so whatever you buy I think you will be happy, spares are also all availble mail order so build up a few items and go from there. But buy a Mugen!! hehe

Also dont rule out a good secondhand kit if funds are tight as you can then invest in some of the other equipment/ tools you will need.
