i try to be

Im just keeping it real, out of all the truggies i have driven on your list the Mugen is the best overall. But at a recent race, i TQed with the Mugen and then drove the OCM prototype truggy immediatly after and it felt very similar to the mugen but had more steering, and thats a deadly combo.

And for the price... its almost a no brainer.
