It is an awesome box with a motor just as powerful as the mugen.

i have both.......

The Mugen is MUCH better IMO. I just got the Mugen box about two weeks ago, till then I was on the X5 bandwagon. It's not even close......the Mugen is worth the trouble to locate one somewhere in the country. It took me nearly an entire day to find one. Got lucky at this little place in FL. I prob spent $10 in long distance bills calling all over the country that day. There was some guy on here that same day that paid a $20 finders fee for one.

The X5 wheel is crap and the belts will fail on you if you don't keep an eye on them. Those two motors are NOT as powerful as the Mugen either.
