Electric has only one thing over nitro and that is maintaince....But to be honest....Maintance is part of the hobby and I enjoy it....

And on the CRT being less steering sensitive than the ST-R....Hog wash....
Use the Kyosho ball and ball ends and use 0 offset rims and you have more than you can use steering....

I have a Jammin CRT which I have an understeer problem, I'll try your tip using Kyosho ball cups and ends, by the way, regarding the 0 offset rims, does it really help?

i agree with mach51. there's no best truggy. only best hand

revodude16: if u wanna be different, just get the new one. i.e. Mugen truggy or the Kyosho ST-R. if u think u gonna break something due to your own driving expertise, get a kit that supported at yer local hobbyshop.
if u concern what others might say.. check the rc magazine...lots of them review those three(well mugen still new, so take yer risk).

as for a vote... jammin it is. thats becoz i drive one & it performs well. I might get the Mugen truggy just for the heck of it.
this also help in knowing yer competitor
get all three if u got the $$$$.

I doubt that I would buy a Kyosho ST-R unless they fix the SERIOUS front diff problem.

ZERO problems with the MBX5T. It's dialed and SUPER durable. Plus it comes with CrimeFighter MT tires. Very good kit!

I like everyone else have to say that there isnt a best truggy. i own the kyosho and absolutely LOVE IT!!! Super Dialed, handles awesome, no problems ever with it. people talk about the diff problems and i luckily havnet had a single issue with it. but i also have the king headz treatment(knuckles, rear carriers, front brace, toe blocks anti squat you name it) plus the awesome very required Tonys screws....

but i would recommend the Mugen of the three, for the price and what you get with it, you cant go wrong. the prospec at 640 is super dialed.... no hop ups required except the ugly body(my only complaint) plus as tony said,you get the Crime fighters with it

i think the STR and the new Mugen are the two choices i would choose from on buying a new truggy.

Yes teh 0 offset rims shorten the width of the truggy and it will turn in quicker becuase of it.

You have to trim the inside bead off the 0 offset rims and glue the inside bead of the tire to the very inside of the rim. Outside stays the same.

Hope that helps,
