The K&N is still a Losi product, it's just the desert buggy instead of the Truck. If you like the buggy better, or the deal, I wouldn't hesitate to buy it as you'll still have good after the sale support for parts, aftermarket parts, etc.

I read somewhere that the DBXLs cage limits the amount of aftermarket parts that can be used. I don't know if thats engines, pipes, stroker kit, ect. I do like that they are 4wd. I've tried to get a "whole shot" start with my 5sc against my buddy Dwaynes 5IVE-T and its just impossible, unless I distract him (...whoa! Is she wearing yoga pants), and then I try to speed off.
