Default Muegan MBX6 -vs- Competition

Ok so I have been out of racing for a long time and I am getting ready to purchase a used Muegan MBX6 with many upgrades, and I am wondering how it stacks up against everything else out there. I have a couple of other options and just wanna make sure I make a good first decision. My other option is a new Losi 8ight 2.0 RTR (Not the Pro), for about the same price. Any help is appreciated.

Breakdown on the MBX6
JR synthesised radio with 2 recievers
Sportwerks .21
Hobbico cs170 steering servo
Hobbico cs170 Throttle servo
3 Engines
Spares for the clutch and nitro parts
3 Reciever packs
a spare chassis
Starter box
2 gallons of fuel
Much much more

Since you do have relative experience with rc racing, I would strongly suggest getting a brand new MBX6 Mspec!! You owe it to yourself. Save yourself the headaches. It really handles well and you will be completely satisfied. Its one of the top, if not, the top buggys hands down!!

Default Mugen

After having a new 2.0 roller for 3 months, we sold it to buy a MBX6, the losi is a good car don't get me wrong, but the Mugen really fits my sons driving style, and much easier for him to drive

Buy it! A good starting point for the setup is the stock setup for the M-Spec.
