the x6 is awesome, I have 3 gallons on my original kit with no broken parts, and it handles awesome, but odonell is coming out with a new updated version of the z01b, it looked good at motorama

both cars are very well made and handle good. If going to zo1b route i would wait till the end of this month or next an updated kit is susposed to come out. Also, i would go with what ever one is easier for you to get parts.

O'Donnell would probably be a more forgiving car to drive, Mugens I've seen were tail happy

I had the same choice to make a few weeks ago. I almost pulled the trigger on the Mugen until I saw the quality of the O'Donnell kit. From what I've heard anyone who buys a Z01-B will automatically get the team upgrade kit with proof of purchase during 2009.

the fuel tank issue has been taken care of....most people tighten the fuel tank bolts way to tight

and yes anyone who buys the z01b will be able to receive a team upgrade kit with proof of purchase or if you buy your kit in a week or two it might already be in there

Go with the zo1b

I ran one when they first came out and didnt have any issues with the strength of it I bought a lot of spare parts....didnt need any of them.

I have run a lot of different cars in the last year and i am going back to OD as soon as they are back in stock hopefully next week.

This is how it's done.
If Mugen did the same thing I'd be recomending mugen, however they did not, and I'm looking around for other brands.

I'm going for the 801x, but the O'donnell seem very nice!
(Had some laps with my brothers MBX6 yesterday, it is a great car).

The two cars seem wery nice either way, think it all boils down to what feelings you get when looking at them in the store.

well i have never driven the odonnell car but have driven alot of the others and the one i like the best is the mugen it is quality kit dosnt need anything and will stay tight without alot of maintence i would go with mugen also you are not going to want to tear down 2 cars all the time so if go with mugen they pretty much dont need very much up keep to stay good and as far as drving you can make any car snappy and loose or super planted with set up good luck with either onw hsould be good choice think mugen willbe easier to find set up help for though
