Default Compare betwen MBX6 and Xray 808

As i know, MBX6 is harder but heavier, I see xray is more professional than MBX6. Both of them is the same so i don't know chose what.
If you were me, which kit would you chose!
Can you give me some exp to get a best kit.

I race an Xray 808, but put it this way...

The only other car I would even consider is the MBX6. Mugen is the only other manufacturer that even comes close to Xray's build quality.

In the end, you have to choose whether you prefer pillow ball or c-hub suspension? European or Japanese?

I chose Xray and have no regrets. I love everything about the buggy.

+2....You read my mind..Mugen is the only other buggy I would own...XRAY is tops on my list, but I would not be unhappy with the Mugen if it didn't have PBS..I had those on my Hyper and I hated them

Buy a Z-Car and see its driverain last 17 gallons and still be racing, and you will change your mind.

That's fair. I've never even seen one of those buggies so I can't comment. I don't think they have a dealer in Canada at all.


Tamiya looks like it could be pretty high-quality, too. I have only seen the Truggy up close so far.

I believe the guy asked about Mugen and XRAY only..There are about 8-10 buggies very capable of winning races, but only 2 involved in this conversation

Mugen's the only other car I would have considered over my 808. The build quality looks similar, but from what I have seen at my track, the 808 maybe a little more durable.

You can't go wrong with either car imho. I don't know the driving characteristics of the Mugen, but it certainly flies in the hands of the local yokel pro's at my track.

when i put my mbx6 together, i was dumbfounded on the quality of the parts. Just the plastic alone is unbelievable. The xray is at least as good. I will say this, one of my servo saver shafts came with only one end threaded. My lhs said it will be awhile the part is on backorder. And on backorder everywhere i looked. I wrote mugen a email and it was shiped out 20 minutes after i sent the email and on my doorstep in 3 days!!!!
