LOL. I'm not touching this one. JK. I'm sure both are awesome and you can't go wrong either way. "If you have parts available" becomes a big factor when you're racing. So let that influence your desicion. You'll be pleased either way you go.

Yup another touchy subject. Look for threads that compare between the mugen and the losi as the xray is much more similar in "feel" to the mugen than the losi. +1 on the parts availability, unless you like to purchase and carry around $200 worth of parts

if you can get xray parts easy go xray I've seen alot of people switch to losi and hate, and everyone who has an xray loves theirs, but thats just my opinion. plus the xray fit and finish and quality is far better than a losi.

Both are definately good, but once you build an xray car/truck, you will be spoiled! They go together so easily, and the quality of the fit, finish and parts is far superior to Losi imo (I have had em both). And you can forget rod ends popping off the xray - it can't happen with their ball studs, unlike the Losi...that seems like a small thing, but when ball ends are popping off in the middle of a main, it gets irritating right quick, trust me! You can be fast with either of them no question, but for my money, I doubt I would go back to the L brand after owning the xray
