Both, all depends on the track conditions. I will adjust the suspension as needed. Right now, it has the stock silver springs on it.

Just wanted to say thanks for all the help. After some reading in both threads I decided to go with the mugen for the simple reason of parts support. Seemed there was an issue with some parts for the xray being on backorder for sometime and the way I drive I'm gonna need parts.

Your not going to regret your decison. You also wont need too many parts as they dont break!

they dont break that easy unless you really hit something. ive been running mugen buggy and truggy for a good while now and havent broke one truggy arm and only 2 fronts and 1 rear...if you do break them, boil them for 15-20 min and they will withstand alot more

The 6 is a great buggy, I race truggy mainly, but took part ina 6 hour endurance race athe weekend with my 6 buggy. There were 5 of us in a team, 4 of us race truggy so we are not used to buggy. There were some big jumps and crashes and the only thing to break was a servo horn and clutch bell, not an "A" arm broken in site

how do they say? it's funny cause it's true seriously, im sure the "better" drivers out there wont break anything as often as a beginner. im still learning, like my friends with their mugens (normal mbx6), durangos and Rc8's..., and we wreck ALL the time and we wreck big, and i can honestly say that both 808's i have own now (09, and '011) was the stronger buggy by miles..the weakest being the Rc8...and this is based on what we actually see breaking every weekend not what a friend of a friend has told his grandma's dog. that being said...i won't not buy a mugen, they are great, but for now my bulletproof 808 is just what i need. just be happy with what you got and stop the constant [email protected] contest, you'll always end up doubting wether you got the best or not. if YOU bought a thunder tiger TT04 that should be the best car in the world in your eyes in that moment of time jeez, just enjoy your TOY, cause thats what it is

cheers
