Firstly there wouldnt be any gains in purchasing iether one for club level racing,For you to notice the difference you would have to be a very good driver with good setup knowledge to benefit from a R over a MBX5.
Overall improvements are quality of plastic and suspension geometry changes to teh R and the hop ups that come std with teh R kit.
With the way the market goes these days Id buy a MBX5R to be current ,parts support is the best as Mugen is one of the most popular cars out there.
Which ever kit you choose you wont be dissapointed they are great cars.
Just remember cars dont win races ,drivers do ,equipment helps you get there quicker and with durability.
The most important factor that we tend to ignore is HAVE FUN !!!
