Ya... I'm liking the MOOOOGEN stuff the more I look at it.

I did own a decked out TTRS3 last year as well. Didn't like it though, finally sold it as well.

O.k i have driven/owned/raced for 1/8th

We are discussing about durabilty correct?.. it's not about overall performance

1. xtm = The tank of all buggy's but parts are monopolized so it's a nightmare to get parts. weak c hubs.

2. Casterracing/zx1 = Got sponsored direct from them to test the durabilty.weak plastics and i had to use mugen parts during the races. also weak chassis... it cracks on the engine mount.Must thank kfactory mugen chassis to save the day.

3. Kyosho mp777 = A little weak in the arms. Mp7's guys at the track use to sit with me and complain all day about it.

3. Kyosho mp777 sp2= More durable can be pushed to the limits

4. Sportwerk/mayhem = the only thing i love about the buggy is the shocks smooth like butter. Also weak arms.

5. Jammin x1cr = Durable like a sp2 just need that front plate upgrade.

6. Mugen mbx4-RR = The beast of parts, durable but costly at that time 4/5 years back :P

7. xb8 = yes strong like a tank same as xtm . i like the chassis

8. xb8 TQ = facial upgrade same strong arms and plastics just but like mugen costly

9. Mugen mbx5 = Durable plastics best manufacturer vote from me

Depends on the driving style . I suck on road scale that i bent a 4mm chassis last week on a kyosho v1rr as it flew up a kerb 360 in mid air back on ground bumped up again and into a bush. . offroads are able to take more damage .Plus if the buggy holds itself together without breaking any parts. Hobbyshops and manufactures will be bankrupt and we won't have a hobby .

Kyosho has been in the 1/8 game since the mid-eighties with the Burns. Mugen wasn't even around then.

Phillips head screws are just as good as hex head, the difference is that more people use the wrong screwdriver for the phillips than they do for the hex heads. (It's too easy to use a #1 when tightening a #2 therby stripping the head, however, haven't you heard of all the times someone uses an imperial hex wrench on a metric head. Except for the 2mm and 5/64 which are the same.)
