Default Electric Losi 8ight-T 2.0????

I am thinking about going from my brushless E-Revo to a converted electric Losi 8ight-T 2.0 for off road racing.

Can anyone tell me how the handleing, speed, jumping, and all would be compared to a E-Revo? Also, I am tring to figure out if the $600+ is worth it to switch.

For raceing that buggy and Team Associateds Rc8 are the best. Youll be able you handle the buggy better in ther air on jump , speed will still be fast but you can control it becuase the dont wheelie,

I wouldn't say the Losi and AE are the best. There is also Mugen and Xray which are far better quality. But I seen a brushless 8ight-t 2.0 at my track, when Losi had scheduled a private testing session, and a T 2.0 E on 6s lipo did a double backflip and overrotated on this step up jump we have.

My LHS has the 1.0 for $399 Rolling compared to the 2.0 for $600. What the differences in the two?

The 2.0 has quite a few advantages if you are racing, but if you are just bashing the 1.0 will be adequate.

Ended up getting the 2.0 Losi 8ight-T with the conversion kit and OMG! The difference is NIGHT AND DAY in handling. This thing is in a COMPLETLY different class. I am very happy so far with this choice

The 8ight T has the added advantage of weight distribution. The diff is off center enough to move the battery closest to the center. That's the heaviest part of the truck in a brushless setup meant to make a 15 minute main. I have the 8ight E buggy, great car. [8D]

I think that the 2.0 is the best truggy on the market, but in the hands of a pro, any truggy will make great lap times.

only problem with the losi is the rear diff . the gears like to deflect and strip while useing brushless power . i have my fingers crossed for a alum diff housing . the mugen has way better gears but that is not in my price range . i love my losi so i will just keep fixing it

Have you tried the aluminum inserts for the rear diff?
