Definately Kyosho if you want the best handeling, although I havent seen a mugen run yet. The STR jumps much smoother than anything else I have seen.
A good example is if you undershoot a big triple or quad and land on the top of the last jump: instead of pancaking and slapping it just absorbs the shock and keeps on going. I am very pleased with mine, and its always nice to have something different because everyone around my track has a Jammin.

IMHO the real truth here is there is no such thing as the best truggy. Kyosho, Jammin, Mugen and so on are all good. Pick the one you can get the most support for.

Plus setup support.....no one does it better than Jammin in that area, They give you all the setups for all the big races plus Pro's home tracks. Kyosho is one tough truggy as far as durability goes...Not saying the CRT is weak..but Kyosho is nitorous for there strong plastic. The Mugen should also be a competator....

Buy what you can get parts for and suport..

I own a Jammin CRT, it handles great and is very durable. I recently drove one of my friends new MBX5T's and I thought that had more aggressive steering. It felt as though my CRT would drift around more than his. But if his broke loose it would spin out easier. This was after a Minnesota Nitro Series race that I ended up winning both 1/8 scale and Arena Truck with a Jammin CR and CRT. I think he finished 3rd in both classes with his Mugens.

I have heard from one of my other buddies that has a Kyosho STR, he said that the Jammin is easier to drive fast than the CRT that he used to have. The STR was very twitchy and unpredictable. He had to put some 1/2 in. offset tires like on the CRT to help calm it down.

Hope this helps

I just went from a crt to a kyosho st-r and it's night and day. The kyosho can out steer buggies let alone easily out steer the crt. The st-r is easier to drive and it goes where you want it to go. Personally i feel the st-r is the best handeling truck out there.

First of all sort of off topic.
Second, until electric can smell like nitro and make noise it wont ever replace it lol!

Or run an hour main.....


Nitro has its place....
Electric has its place.
Please don't think one would ever replace the other...

Plus brushless doesn't have the brake you need with such heavy off road vehicles...

SOrry but if you can't snap on the brake and bring your front end down if you let off the throttle too late....Brushless will never take over Nitro...
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....
