Default MGT 4.6 or Aftershock

^^ I will be bashing and messing around. Will the wait for the AS be worth it?

From what i've heard the Aftershock is a step backwards for Losi. They've removed many of the features which made the LST 2 what it is in order to reduce the price.

The MGT 4.6 is the second version of the truck, and it hasn't been downgraded to make it cheaper.

Part support should be the biggest factor in your decision though.

I'm also going to vote MGT. But the aftershock looks good. I'm sure some LST2 upgrades will fit on it, but then your spending extra money and might as well get the LST2.

I think the aftershock is just a way to get rid of the LST 1 parts they had left over...

Well I'm a huge LST fan, but after trying to race the LST1 for several months I would not make anyone drive that truck. If you want a Losi go with the LST2. The Aftershock is a hopped up LST1 without the IMPORTANT upgrades. I DO love the LST2 and race it every weekend. But I won't even bash a LST1 anymore. It was a miserable experience to say the least.

Go for the MGT.
