I like Mugen. It's the right balance of tech/features and sensible design for me. It performs, lasts, is inexpensive on parts and has been this way since the original MBX5.

That said, mine's about to become a Tekno V4. My favorite nitro engine still sux.

I wouldn't count out the Hot Bodies, but I do agree Mugen will end up on top..

my mbx6t has a nice chassis I would choose the xray 808 but they have some flex issues at the moment.
cheers

mbx6 is my 1st 1/8 buggy, after 2 gallons i replaced all the bearings with only 1 being gritty(l/r inner) not counting clutch. only parts failures were the rear bulkhead( i forgot to install 2 of the 4 screws on the shock tower) and a left rear hinge pin due to a pretty violent somersault outside the track. i find it very easy to drive in comparison to losi and associated(likely due to individual setups) it works for me
