Ive seen a Nitrage run in our local racetrack. Never even finish the first qualifying because of the stripped "PLASTIC" spur gear.

I think the Tam car is a hybred monster truggy. It will not run with a good race platform. Although, it certainly looks like they have one in the works.

The Hyper truck looks good. Two local guys are running theirs here and they both do real well with them. It looks very stable. Hopefully, they have corrected their parts issues from the Hyper 8. I'm almost sure they have addressed them.

I saw the new K-Car ST run last night and it was OK. Still very new so the guy had some work to do.

The Mugen is a top of the class vehicle as always.

Don't over look the Xray. The new truck is running off the charts down here in all kinds of tracks and conditions. Prob the most durable of these products.

Of course the Losi looks great as well. RTR wise, this vehicle is hands down the best package. 2 servos and you are done. Set it up right and go racing.
We actually use that motor in our race chassis! This is the vehicle I have done the least to for full blown comp!

Good luck,
TEX

Is this worth it or am I wasting money ?

I'm little bit crazy when buying rc cars....... I always buy two kits. I need anyone helps to straighten up my crooked way of thinking. .... Should I buy Thunder Tiger ST-1 Pro two kits ( one car, one spare parts ) or should I buy Mugen Seiki MBX5T Prospec one kit only ??


Thunder Tiger ST-1 Pro Kit.





Or, MBX5T Prospec ?

Cool

I would say go Jammin, it has long time winning roots and lots of set-ups out there... But go with the Mugen if ya got the scratch.. Its a hella sweet Truggy.. Also the Losi truck is smooth!

I think you should buy Mugen Prospec version with extra goodies like :

OS 30 VG
KO Propo PDS-2386 ( 240 oz @ .15sec ) X 2 for steering & servo.
Pro line Crime Fighter 40 series + 23m alluminium wheel hex + wheel hex opener
Futaba FASST radio system

Why get 23mm hubs? That is probably the most useless way to spend money on a mugen. My vote for radio is React/3PK Fasst/KO Propo and at least 200oz on steering and 80 oz on throttle brake, I would go ace for servos but everybody has their brand and stick with them. For motor I would recomend any Italian motor, if you go for something around $300 I would say Ninja, if you go cheaper something like the RB S5 and Novarossi 21BF are great motors and if you realy want something good get the RB C6

Has anyone even considered the OCM DT-19T? We are currently testing 2 prototypes and are more than pleased with the results. Hopefully they will be avaliable in the next month or two.

I agree on the Italian motors, Radical and IRC Racing have the best engines out there....IMO.
