-Popularity
-Stability
-Or any other points you consider to be important.


These are the ones-

Why no Kyosho?
If I had a choice i would go the Hyper 8.
Mugen is also a great kit but many find it hard to get parts for.
Xray has now been out for about 4 years and was Xray's first kit. I don't think i have ever seen it win a race.
X1 CR is also a very nice kit and has been proven a winner all over the world.

Cheers

You said you are a beginner, have you ever done nitro before or electric? Have you considered a RTR?

Cheers

I had a Kyosho Inferno MP7.5 K3. Sold it about 8 months ago and now am looking at getting the MP77 S2

XRC Magazine did a 1/8 Buggy shoot out a few months back (issue #118 I believe). I'm not a 1/8 driver so not sure if it reviewed the buggies you listed but it may be a good start for you.
