Besides the fact that this question gets asked 100 times a day on RCU, "better" is subjective. If you're talking the RTR Losi truggy, it's probably the best outfitted RTR out there. Good radio (2.4Ghz) and starter box (no stupid spin-start).

your not going to get many things on HPI's trophy from US residents as HPI deemed us not worthy to be able to own it without ordering it from europe

Thats ok I have discarded the trophy and jato. Its now between MGT 8.0 and the Losi 8ight-t 2.0 rtr. I really dont know what one to get. I love my savage and my firestorm I want something faster than them both but durabule.

Stick with the Savage, the Losi is for racing. It's not meant to be as durable. More durable than a Savage? Is there such a thing?

hi, in my opinion if you already have a savage then I'd get the Losi 8ight-t 2.0. The Losi wont be as durable as the savage obviously but you can leave the heavy bashing to the savage and the speed/track to the losi. If you got the MGT 8.0 then you'd have 2 generally similar monster trucks.

A Savage IMO is nowhere near as durable and reliable as a good truggy.....

I have seen some Savys do some pretty crazy stuff. Stuff that not many trucks could withstand. With an XRAY XT8 and a Savage XL I push thebashlimits of both trucks and the truggy is made for ultra technical stuff. While the Savage isexactly what the name implies a beast, neary indistructable.
But honestly theXT8 is very tough and I don't think that it is much different than most quality truggys. I love my XRAY,but that Losi can be seen everywhere andparts are easier to get.
Get yourself a truggy not another MT
