Default Buggies

What would be your choice of buggies ? Here's the kicker...you can't vote for the car you run now. So in most cases it would be your second favorite car. I believe this will give me an honest answer, so please no picking your current ride.
My current = CEN
2nd choice = XRay

NOW = 808
If 808 not an option I would go back to my truggy (mugen) cuz it shares parts with my second favorite buggy.

Well at my local track theres 1 Xray, 3 Matrix's, 2 Rc8's, and the rest seem to be Losi. You cant judge by the big name people because it's a job to them, whoever pays them is who'll they'll race for. But having 4 D8's in the top 10 of the Worlds, are they that good and how come their not anybody's 2nd choice.
