I have a Traxxas NItro-Rustler. It is fun as hell, 50mph+ right out the box. Cory has an T-Maxx up for sale also. He got a Losi 8ight 2.0, and it kills anything Traxxas has ever even THOUGHT about building.
There is an RC track less than half a mile from my apartment. I'll get some vids next time I go over there.
Canaan, a Losi 8ight 2.0 won't kill a platinum edition Revo too easily. I'll put a first Edition Revo(it's made by Traxxas FYI) in the hands of Steve Slayden and I bet he'll put any fully race modded 8ight to shame. Now giving two equally skilled drivers have one or the other that's when the 8ight will shine.
It's not exactly the same because there are a lot more noobs driving race R/C cars than noobs driving real race cars. See what I'm saying? I've owned both, a stock Revo that I eventually modified heavily and I've owned an 8T. My Revo put plenty of 8s to shame. It's all about the nut behind the wheel :D
