Thumbs up Mugen MBX6-T vs. Serpent S811T

Hi guys. Looking to buy another truggy for racing after I broke my Losi 8ight T so much that I couldn't fix it.

I would like to convert whichever truggy I get to electric. I know Mugens got a conversion kit, but don't know about the Serpent. (HATE NITROS)*

Anyway, which one's better? Give me your opinion

Serpent will be coming out very soon with their nitro to electric truggy conversion and a full kit. Can't go wrong with either Mugen, Serpent, Durango, or Tekno. I'm biased towards the Serpent, cuz I have one, and it's awesome. Seen too many Mugen's break front arms at the escale nats.

Get a purpose built e-truggy. That being said I've owned the nitro serpent and it was the best RC vehicle I've ever owned. Tekno or serpent would be my vote

Don't get the Mugen, unless you like breaking front lower A Arms. Other than that, and it's a big THAT, the truck is great.

Problem is you won't make a race day without breaking one.

So durability wise the Serpent is better, but driving wise the Mugen is better? So for racing it's better to get the Mugen?
