They look so similar. What is the difference besides the body and tires? The lazer does look a bit less cartoonish and would get my vote based on looks.

Laser chassis kit!

Lazer Chassis Kit. Looks like it would perform on RCP or Carpet than the other.

The other looks like it is setup for dirt.

I don't think I would run it on a dirt track unless it was really well groomed. Even then kind of iffy.

Laser chassis set also!:)

Maybe if the optima had a wing I would go for it.
But now, lazer looks better.

Looks wise, hands down the Optima. Practicality wise, the Laser with mini pin tires and a wing, it's better equiped for racing.

Lazer has a giant scoop wing. Looking forward to it. :)

lazer for me too...

kinda like the optima, but would like it better with lazer wheels/tires and a fabricated rear wing... :D

Lazer like many others.

More attractive tire/wheel to me and I'm too young to have memories with the optima.

Lazer chassis set.

2011.09.10, 08:44 AM
Lazer so I can put it next to my 1/10 Lazer but damn those Optima wheels and tires are lovely

2011.09.10, 08:58 AM
An Optima chassis set, even though I like the Lazer tires slightly more since they seem more practical.

2011.09.10, 11:30 AM
Lazer for me. +1

2011.09.12, 12:33 PM
The Lazer is really cool. Very similar, in looks, to my 1:8 scale buggies.

2011.09.21, 10:14 AM
Optima all the way! The older the design the better, it was love at first sight :)

Going with the chassis set, this will be the third profile on my EX5 haha. Cannot wait for these buggies to come out, very excited.
