Default MBX-6 - Xray 808 - MP9 - Best buy? Best Quality?

Please help... what is the best buying option between these 3 buggies? I am having a hard time deciding what buggy should i put my money in.

My options are:

Mugen MBX-6
Xray 808
Kyosho MP9

I will highly appreciate if actual owners can post their coments, i dont intend to start a war between fanboys, i need to hear the opinion of impartial drivers and owners.

PLEASE DONT POST IF YOU DONT EVEN OWN ANY OF THESE BUGGIES.

There is a search function at the top of the page that will allow you to find the older threads that discuss this topic.

With that said, all three of these buggies are of similar quality. I have the 808 and the quality of the kit unbelievable. The plastic is top notch, the car needs zero upgrades, and extremely durable.

i would recommend the xray, i have recently owned the mugen and the kyosho, the mugen was durable but allways seemed on edge, wasnt much fun to drive, and the kyosho was to fragile and the way it handles would change as the day went on, constantly needed adjustments would go from turning good to pushing as the night went on and the moisture came up in the track, the xray i personally havent owned i have run one a few times and liked it, they had some issues with bearings but have now come out with inserts for the bulkheads to take care of it, it handled similar to the 8ight 2.0 that i am running now

Thank you guys.. to all of those who wrote something good and constructive.

captain america... lets burn something else... just give my your home address and iŽll be more than happy.

rearviewmirror... go F***K some where else. If you are such a wise ass why did you even take the time to enter this thread and even right on it when you think you know more than God. Go write your bull***t somewhere else or go to play with your awfully looking easy girlfriend of the picture. I did ask the same at the Mugen forum, but since YOU did reply as an assho*** too i decided to nicely ask in MY OWN THREAD.

Why does anyone have to stick his nose where he doesnt??? I am making my research, whats wrong with that???

Get a Losi

but that's favoritism

out of your 3 choices I'd go the the 808

I have seen all three buggies run and I tend to see that it is the smoothest

All good choices. Get the one that makes you feel pretty. I vote for Xray BOB because.........wait for it............








allmost...........










It has optional ACTIVE DIFFS available. Yes folks I get to say active diffs one more time. If that isn't an advantage I don't know what is. The BOB has those drive shafts that connect right to the pinion gears. Check out thier site.

And another good reason, if you drive an Xray real fast into back of a Mp9 just right, a gold coin will fall out of its diff housing.

Is there another 808 coming out already? It seems like the current 808 is only a year old. Is it going to be called 809?

EDIT:
Nevermind... I found the answer to my question. Yes, there's an updated 808.

They should have called it the 809. Just like Losi should have called thier new car the Losi Nine. 9ine just sounds fun.

2.0 sounds like a defective Bill gates product. (I have to be careful what I say near my Op system or it'll crash.)

Active diffs.
