Lets all be honest with the guy here, you can buy any of the TOP cars and be happy with it. We all like things alittle different which is why we all have our favourite car. But to try and rubbish the MUGEN with there track record, well..............makes me think you can't know alot about buggy's.
See what the other guys in your area are racing, thats the best place to start.. After that i'd suggest in no particluar order Losi 8, Mugen MBX-5R, 777 SP2 (any of the releasses are good), Hyper 8, Jammin, TeamMagic,Xray Xb8TQ like i said any of the top buggies really.
Oh if you fancy the Magic i'd wait alittle longer and get the revised kit, It's only got a few issues to be sorted out but might as well have the kit where it's been done.
Personnely i'm running the Mugen 5R and get on with it tremdously well. In fact last weekend was it's maiden race meeting which i WON over a lap ahead of the rest of the field (i'm told it was 2 but there were some transponder problems) which included a MAGIC and an Xray Xb8TQ driven by last years local hero's .......
So in conclusion different people WILL be faster with different cars but i truely believe any of the top cars are good enough to WIN.
A bigger factor at club racing is if you can get set-up help from your buddies and parts easily should you break it. It's all well and good having the fastest car at the meeting but if you can't set it up or repair it after a breakage you might as well have stayed at home
