Default associated rc8t CE or losi 8ight-t 2.0 roller???

lets hear any opinions on the new rc8t CE compared to the 8ight-t 2.0 race roller? cause i cant decide. i really like the rc8t CE. but i have a mmgt and a lst2 and a 8ight b. and associated cant beat the losi quality. but maybe the rc8t ce would be higher quality when comparing to a little truck like the mmgt. so im leaning toward putting out the extra $150.0 for the losi quality. what does anyone else think? clay unruh

i will say the losi is the better choice out of those two racing wise but i can tell you losi wears quick. but its a good truggy just not the most durable.

The losi is really durable, though some of it's parts wear quickly, meaning it will take abuse and bad crashes.

I'm an RC8T fan - and the new CE should be even better. The Losi is awesome too. IMO the normal RC8T and the Losi are equals.. How much better the new CE is I don't know.. But IMO nothing is more agile than the Associated when set up right.. Definitely cannot complain about quality, toughness, or wear with the Asso either..

i got the Rc8t Ft but alls i need to be a CE is the shock towers. My truck with the right set up is dialed. But these threads are a dime a dozen. Its best to go find a quarter make AE heads and Losi tails and give her a good flip and go with what fait chose.

Having owned and raced a 2.0, I would definately say Losi... Associated is a good trug, but more on par with the 1.0. the 2.0 is much more nimble and user friendly. Jumps better, corners great and is pretty darn durable... some of the parts that wear are the shock ends, and the rear hubs... Easy to fix as there are becoming more and more aftermarket upgrades available.
