All the current truggies on the market are fast enough to get the job done. It will be up to the driver to place each one in the winners circle. All these trucks will need to be setup to fit your driving style.
I really don't see any big advantage from one brand to the other, just the price. The biggest problem I see among club racers is the fact that they like to throw money at it and that don't win races.

I do not feel there is one better or stronger over the other out there. It comes down to personel preference. I myself have seen 2 of mt buddies beat the tar out of there RC8T's and not break a thing race after race. I have seen Losi's race after race not break a thing, as Mugens and so forth and so on. Now... they all have there weak spots, ALL some a few more then others but for the most part all. The Xray seems to "me" to be a little sturdier then most,"but" it has it's quirks to. I myself have been an Associated guy for a long time now, not because I think there the "best" I am comfortable with them and have never needed anything different is all. Drive as many different platforms you can and see which one fits your driving style and chose that way if you can.

I agree with that. Anything can break. Comes down to what you do with it, how you drive it, and a little bit of luck. IMO.

+1 Thats the way I feel about my MUGENS. If I was a better driver I would definately be driving an rc8 though.

I'll believe it when I see it. Until then, I WILL NOT recommend an Odonnell buggy/truggy.
