Pros: They're all top-level, competitive cars, and really fun to drive.

Cons: They're addictive. You'll be selling plasma to support your addiction.

HaHa, Theres like 400+ pages of forum on these cars! Its a good read though. Don't forget the Xray 808 forum. I can narrow it down to two or three cars for ya.

Xray 808
Mugen Mbx6
Kyosho Mp9

in that order.

There is not a magic answer to your question. It has more to do with the driver than the car. The real TRUTH is anyone of those rides can beAT any of those rides on any given day. Depending on the X factor (THE DRIVER)!!!!

Kyosho mp9 pro: very smooth drivetrain con: weak front end

Mugen mbx 6 pro: durable con: allways felt on edge

Hot Bodies D8 pro: price con: drive shafts

Losi 8 2.0 pro: aggressive but easy to drive con: not metric

i have owned all of these cars accept for the d8, but have seen a few at the track they seem to have alot of issues with the drive shafts, they kyosho let me down multiple times on the track with the front arms breaking and hinge pins bending,the mugen was just hard to get a set up that worked in all conditions, i havent been a big fan of losi but the car jumps better, turns better, and is super stable. its not the highest quality car out there but probably but i found it to be the easiest car to drive
