I already own a typhon, and I enjoy it. its good for bashing, and handles ok on the local track, nothing fancy but it works. Its noticeably heavier than a racer though, it feels okay to me but ive also never driven an RC racer other than my brothers associated b64 (1/10 and like 1/3 the wieght of the typhon)
Someone locally is selling a losi 8ight 3.0 (it was a kit) as a slider for 500$ CAD (seems like a lot, but these things seem to be around 1000$ for the new version as a slider in canada)
Would it be worth it to sell the typhon and get the losi? How different would it feel on a track? My typhon is 2016 and the losi is 2012 i believe so its a noticeably older car. Anyone know parts availability? Thank you for any help you can offer

The 3.0 was a great car, but it has been discontinued for a few years now. Parts supply will dry up soon.

If you want to race, try something newer.

Hi,
Lot of guys at local track have the TLR 3,0 and these are running like monsters on the track.
My opinion? I will take it as a starter RC racing machine for training and friendly races and keep an eye on a brand new 4,0 for officials races… But, that's my opinion… :)
