    Hello I was wondering if anyone could tell me about some truggys im looking at getting one. I heard that the losi 8ight-T 2.0 is good and I also heard the team associated RC8T is also very good. I am looking to get an electric truggy that's 1/8 so I would have to do a conversion for them which I don't mind. does anyone know about the hpi trophy truggy flux? is it strong cause the last hpi I had broke every run. are there any other good truggys out there? if anyone can help that would be great. thank you

    The Traxxas Rustler is my personal favorite - its extremely durable and very easy to get it up into the higher speed ranges(70-ish mph) You just have to replace the stock NIMH battery with a 2s 8000mah Lipo and its ready to go really fast(so you dont have to play with gear ratios).

    Hope this helps:)

    No, but you can use a stampede 4x4 and convert it to a rustler 4x4 with some mods.

    really guys, I have the rustler vxl and it is a hoot, I have modded mine with many aftermarket upgrades as stuff broke from poor use. To this day my rustler vxl is still kicking like a bull! I have seen the post above, but When I got my rustler vxl out of the box it was awesome! wheelies on command with a 2s lipo pack. It being crazy durable is no understatement it is! But being real here, any rc will break if you treat it poorly enough lol

    <sigh> the rustler is not a true truggy. its not even a buggy. its a stadium truck.

    the hpi d8t is a good truggy, but it comes in nitro only. u can, however, convert it to brushless.

    the arrma typhon and talion are good cars.

    as well as many others that I cant think of right now( if I remember any, ill post them)

    you think I am dumb dude? Well thanks, her der I know the rustler is not a truggy:confident:
    anywho, I think one more is the arrma kraton 6s is technically a truggy. There are also some cheap basher buggies from hobbyking too, and some other truggy from team associated, there is the ST4 G3-Thunder Tiger too..... I was just saying I do know that the rustler or rustler vxl is a 1/10 scale stadium truck and its a viable fun option... Sheesh dude

    im not saying that your dumb. but lilmoose wants a 4wd truggy. he specifically said 4wd. the rustler, as you know, is 2wd.

    the rustler is a "viable fun option". I never said it wasn't. but since he said 4wd, im recommending him 4wd trucks. you are free to do what you want.
