Default Looking @ an X8E

Hi everyone

I have a X2TE & X4 but am interested in trying an 1/8 scale and found the X8E.
But they seen to be rare.....?
Haven't found a dealer with one in stock yet (UK)

Has anybody tried on, are they as good as like look...?

Any advice would be appreciated

Guy

the Deuce is pretty much the same car but far cheaper. All the parts are inter changeable. The X8E does look very good but is quite a bit more.

I agree. I've just bought a Deuce-E RTR and with few hop-ups from TCModels I have a wonderful car while not spending that much (definitely less than a X8E)

Didn't buy the X8E in the end - Bought a DNX408 and am doing a electric conversion.
Conversion parts from TCMODEL.NET
