All last summer we beat on a couple of 2.0's and 6T's...the difference in durability is quite large, the Mugen's being able to take a considerable amount more punishment before failing....

One thing I have recently learned is that most of us can not compare a particular product with the pros. First of all, they may not get a whole new chassis every race, but they do get enough parts to change everything. Second they can drive and we be donkey flippin all over the track. So durability between say the Losi buggy will differ between the regular Joe and the Pros.

Stick with what you know, if you like Losi get losi ect

Few things...

1. Get the diff orings from tony's screws. This will eliminate the issues with leaky diff.

2. Get the aluminum front shock tower as I have had the stocks ones crack.

3. There have been issues with the chassis cracking at the flywheel opening. I had this issue with my 6 in February 2009, but since changing the chassis and using the kingheads extended motor mount have not had the issue.

Other than this you pretty much have to run into a brick wall for it to fail.

You can't go wrong with the Losi for performance, its a very proven runner. Having run both, I'm just as fast with the Mugen but the MBX6 wears better than the Losi at a factor of 3 to 1, the plastics and metals (driveline especially) are much better quality. I also find the Mugen easier to work on but it's my 3rd one so that's probably just personal preference.
