Default RC8.2e or SC8.2e? Which one should I buy?

RC8.2e or SC8.2e? Which one should I buy? These are both RTR kits coming out in August.. Im not sure which one to buy... I really really like my short course trucks but I know they race the RC8.2e more.

if you plan to race it then definitely get the buggy. hard to find a class for the truck. but it's hard to beat that sc8 for bashing.

you can always convert ur rc8b to the sc8e later if needed...go with the buggy, you won't be disappointed! good for both sdrc and cvrc!

check out cvrc if you havent already! nice big track for your 8's! (and even ur SC!) they have races this friday, come out and check out what everyone's running, the scene!

Default Sc8e or rc8be

I bought a sc8e and converted it to a buggy and back several times. I also have a rc8be and I drive them both the same. The truck is definitely a good investment as you can go back and forth. The sc8e as a buggy is a little longer but doesn't look terrible.

Not sure where you are located but I would look into the tracks in your area and see what they are running. Especially if it's your only rig. You don't want to eliminate yourself from being able to race because no one races that class in your area. Good Luck!
