Questions?? 1/8 Buggy recomendation

Looking to get a new buggy. Looking an the new AE RC8.2 or a Mugen
MBX6. I have a Jammin X1 now it it is very sloppy suspension wise. I run on blownout tracks so I want something tight and durable, have plenty of AE 1/10 stuff and parts are easy around here. Mugen parts are also ok. Is the AE a tight ride ot filmsy compared to a Mugen

Drive both for sure to see which one is best for you, buggys are to expensive to just go out and buy one, I made that mistake the hard way!!

Yeah i got my hands on a mugen truggy turns great but do not know anybody with a more recent rc8. As you can see I like AE have dhad everything since the RC10GT & T2 right thru the T4 & GT2. Parts are widely available around here for both. Just don't want my rear camber to vary between +1* to -3* in a weight shift

Yes i know truggy is a little different but you can see & feel the quality. I'am just looking for a solid no slop ride and leave the the rest up to me. I am actually getting good enough to feel the slopiness in the ride

Believe it or not those to have somewhat limited parts around here. Every thing for the most part will have to be internet ordered which stinks in a pinch
