Did your RC10GT suit your driving needs well?.. or are you looking for something a little different?

Ive ran/owned/own the 8ight-t, X1-CRT, X2-CRT, and the RC8T. I would say either the RC8T or the X2-CRT. I have not tried the new 8ight-t 2.0 but I bet it's sweet.

Most of the Truggys listed here are usually considered 1/8th scale, although, how do you put a scale to something that doesn't exist. But, to add to the post, I'm quite fond of my Xray XT8.

let me give you some advise .new and improved only means its cheaper to make .these companies are not here to make r/c cars they are here to make money . every time they come out with a new model its cheaper to make .just like regular cars .the are lighter only because they are made cheaper I've been around long enough to know whats good and bad .take aq lomg hard look at the stormer lightning stadum pro for 259.00 if you get it you will not beleive your eyes when you open up the box this sucker has everything on it

What I ment is mbx5t is cheaper now cuz it's an older model, there is a mbx6t now. So I have no idea what you are talking about. I didn't say anything about companies making rc's out of cheaper material or anything like that.

Also I just checked out the stormer lightening stadium pro and it dosent include anything in the rtr that stands out or is better then any other rtr. It's got a 2ch radio, .26 mill and some aluminum stuff on it. I'd stay away from aluminum parts as they tend to bend rather than break, causing your rig to drive like crap. I'd rather break plastic parts and buy new ones instead of fighting with a wobbly POS!
