I'm not so sure the better driver always wins. If the vehicle hes driving wont stay together, or breaks way to easy, sometimes the better driver doesn't finish. The guy thats slower and crashes more but has a stronger car can beat drivers that out class him. I proved this by finishing 18 main events in a row with my Xray 808, and in doing so I beat many drivers that where better and faster than I, and purely because they broke or fell apart. If a car is made of lesser quality materials the possibility of a DNS is higher, so equipment does have something to do with it...!

Yes I would like to see one in person. I know Razzor who is on here, I think put a Ishima shock tower and shocks on his ZX1-R he had to try it.

I have narrowed it down to the Hot Bodies D8, Assiciated Rc8, and the Mugen Mbx6. The Kyosho was a little out of my price range.

I'm not a fan of PBS front suspension. I've had them in the pass they wear fast.

So from what I see is a caster a caster or ishima a ishima but I see they are the same car just with different towers and shocks. So who is the REAL manufacture?????

Either way I wouldn't have one because of the PBS

Caster, Ishima and Str8 buggys are made at Caster Taiwan

the mp9 is costing same prize as a mbx6 or 808 kit in W.Europe now
some 550 euro
with the 808 you must add some options to have the same equipment
as the full option mp9, so the prize is reasonable

Here is a link to a vid of the Ishima Buggy on a Belgium track...that thing looks twitchy as hell on that rough blown out track:

That car seems better suited to smooth, fast European style tracks rather than what we have here in the US where big features and big air are the norm.
