Default which buggy to get

I am in the market for a new 1/8 scale buggy, which one should i go with? I am looking at 3 different ones the Team Magic M1B, the Team Losi Eight and the Mugen MBX5r? The motor is going to be either V Spec or a Ninja. Any one have any thoughts on any of them. I have done searchs on the site but am looking for recent feedback.
Thanks
Warren

Both the Losi Eight and Mugen are good 1/8th scale buggies. The V-spec is an awesome motor. My buddy and I are testing them and they are worth the $$$.
