Have been trashing my MP9 SE now for a couple of weeks and haven´t broken a thing and not even developing a slop! I think the quality is real good.
The Xray is even better in quality I hear but this MP9 is more than I could ask for and I´m satisfied.

I have heard about some quality issues with the MP9 but the plastics and buildquality is topnotch on my car anyways.

I competed at a recent State title event here in Australia with my MP9, on a track made from a mixture of clay and decomposed granite (read as hard as concrete). This track also had a step up jump sending the cars 10-12 feet in the air. First time at the track, and believe me I didn't get it right everytime. If the MP9 had durability issues, I'm sure I would've had to replace something over the 4 days. Well guess what, not a broken part.

On the other hand, I did see other brands break (as i said, very tough and hard track, not surprised to see breakages)

The 808 is also a very tough car, and to pick one above the other I think is impossible, they are (along with the mugen) the best you can buy (quality wise)

My opinion.

I love these incendiary titles. Don't you just LOVE the "internets!"


These types of threads always turn out to be owner's surveys because 99-percent of the "opinions" are based on which car they own, or another opinion that they saw somewhere on the internet, which is based on his cousin's best friend's sister's boyfriend's opinion after being into RC for a WHOLE two months.

They're both really good cars.

I'll tell the poster of this thread the same thing I told him in the other thread go to a track & watch what Does Not Finish races at the track you go to. I told you what I see break alot more than the car I drive,take the advice & pay attention for your self. I watch the paid drivers & management from 1 of these 2 companys break their cars constantly. I'm not talking about some newb but people with 20+ yrs experience. Pay attention during the pro & expert mains & make your choise, or better yet if you already have one of the cars build & race it. Why would you keep asking somebody else to make you spend another $900 for another car? If you dont like the one you say you have sell it & get the other.

Well said Butch..i love it when people ask for advice, but dont take it when you give it to them, or they just keep asking until they get the opinion they wanted to begin with. i understand people not taking my advice because its always wrong. I like making shit up as I go along (clean the inside of your sleeve with brillo)

Some of the long time old racers give expert advice and newbies refuse to listen, then bitch when they get frustrated..Man you hit the nail right on the head!!

There lies the problem a lot of the time, this forum is annonymous so unless you know the person posting you dont know how credible the info is, our main forum in the UK Racechat you have to post your real name either in your avatar or sig line or your out the forum, stops silly posts and does mean when guys who should be listened to post people listen, bit off topic but there you go.

on topic dont own either and no one races either at our track so no comment

I saw one thread where the kid asked which starter box he should buy, he also said that he had a total budget for the box, battery and charger of $125 USD..Every single reply he got (12) including me voted for the Blue Ofna Truggy box..and he just kept arguing about it, what about this one, what about this one? that's what I meant by take the advice you are given, or dont start the thread

Some of us still use the Ofna narrow pink box, hehe. Trust me, nobody want to steal that beat up piece of junk, lol, still on the original rubber wheel though after 6 years...
