Default HELP!!! MBX5 Prospec vs XB8TQ

I have been running a Factory Team Jammin and wanted to try out a new buggy. I am torn between a Prospec and a XB8 TQ. I know there are pros and cons for each, but has anyone tried either one of these? There doesn't seem to be much feedback on the TQ so I am just curious what everyone's experiences are with these cars. I have not forgotten about the SP2, I just am not fond of Kyoshos. Thanks for your help guys.

XB8 TQ. That's what I'd have if it werent for the $600.00 worth of Jammin parts in my trailer.

Parts support, manufacturer support, durability, excellent handling. The XRAY was the first buggy I drove where I could actually stay on the throttle all the way through the corner- Not " slide in and set up ", like the Jammin car. Parts support is excellent and parts are high quality. Not to mention, XRAY is constantly evolving and improving the car as time goes on. All positives to me!!!!

Yeah, I have the xb8, and I love it. I also had the jammin, and it was a totally different car, but also very good. I was wondering how different is the TQ version from the orriginal XB8, and if I can buy all the upgrade parts without having to buy the new kit?

You could update your 2004 XB8 to the '06, but damn is it going to cost you. Thats the one thing about Xray, their parts are expensive. You'd probably just be better off buying a new kit, and keeping your old one for spares, or selling it off.

Thanks a bunch guys, my new XB8 TQ should be here on Friday. I ran their touring cars all winter and loved them, hopefully the XB8 TQ keeps up the trend.
