808 or Mbx6 imho they are both on top when it come to durability and performance. For the rest it's more a question of taste and parts, just looks what people run localy and what you lhs carry.

I would agree on either 808 or MBX-6, and if you like the mbx5r then I would just stick with the mugen and get the mbx6. If you are wanting a change, then get the 808.

I had a great season with my Xray 808, in fact the best season yet for me. You will not be disappointed if you pick up one of these 808's,.... this buggy is solid!

... and you will probably pick up a few of these....! I did..!

between the ones you posted I got the Mugen. It does work well. And you can pick them up for under $500 right now. I see no reason to get the K-car as they are completely over priced, as they always have been. I have ran them and they don't last any longer or do anything better then any other car. THe xray is also a great choice, and they are on sale at Amain right now for around $500, either the mugen or the xray is the best way to go right now.

It never hurts to look at the Hot Bodies D8!

If you are ever in North Florida or at the Psycho Nitro Blast let me know and I will let you wheel my car for awhile.

Get the 808, or the 808...if you want another choice try the 808, after building, racing, and crashing, 8 different buggies and manufacturers, once I bought, built, raced, and crashed (allot) the 808...I will never drive anything but XRAY again

the OD buggy is an awesome car i cant tell you what breaks cause i havent broke anything and its like inpossible for the parts to wear out
it handles great and requires very little upgrades the only thing that would be a "must" would be cnc knuckles other than that its all up to you
