I compare it to the great mbx6.
Just my opinion tho

I sure would love to try a mugen, I can't seem to find one I like I want a buggy with alot of steering and such. Out of all the ones you tried, little off topic but what's you top 3. I had a D8 and RC8 both sold off before running, but they looked great. Now I'm with Losi, and well can't comment if I wanna keep it. Hopefully the 8.2 is great with no issues upon release..

Dont get me wrong I dont think the mp9 is a bad buggy ,but its not worth how much there asking for.
The diffs blow in the kyosho too much, everyone i know that has one,thats there #1 complaint.

I dont know how you can compare a mp9=lambo & mugen or rc8b=a mini, cause thats so far from the truth.

I race with mp9/tki2 all the time,and i constantly hear that they want to get rid of them.

My top 3

1-Mugen mbx6
2-Rc8b CE
3-losi 2.0,but the parts wear out to fast for me on the losi thats why i got rid of mines

The hotbodies d8 is a close 3rd if you know what your doing with it,tho it didnt fit me well.

Remember your set up has a lot to do with it.
a lot of people buy one and expect it to be perfect right out the box.And they almost never are except for the losi 2.0's

Thats funny because I know several people at my local track thats gotten rid of there Kyshos because they didnt like them one way or another. Matter of fact I can remember when one of them got there Kysho he said it was the Ferarri of cars. Then he bought a used Durango to use as a backup/practice car and ended up not only liking the Durango way more then his Kysho , he ended up selling it lmao. This RC game is all about preference and just because one car works for someone , it doesnt mean the next man is going to like it.

Not only do there diffs blow , there spur gears constantly strip too. Another thing is they seem to push from what I've seen and hear. Ofcourse set up and track has a bit to do with it but thats with any car. I had a losi 2.0 T and there decent cars but you have to dump a lot of money in to them to make them a true race roller. And yes they're plastic is cheap and wears fast and everyone knows they're not the best steering cars.

didn't know the Lamborghini was such a reliable and maintenance free car?

On thing the though, the kyosho was the smoothest car I ever driven around the track. If the RC8.2 can approach that handling with better reliability at half cost on top of AE's excellent parts availability then any stigma of being "associated" with MP9'ness is a bigger selling point than some may realize.

you surely can't accuse this as another losi copy....1
