personally i do not drive for Mugen, but i have driven them there good and solid...but most of the bugges are pretty good nowdays....
we did a test runs on the GS buggy too.....solid car as well....i do not see many of them but they are good! like the Mugen check for parts availability in your areas....get which ever one has good parts support...
that way if you break at the track your track shop will have parts.....
but if not minding ordering "Online" any car will be ok...but i have to Admit the Mugen will be a little "Easier" in it's box stock set up...Mugen did do there Homework onegetting a good out of the box set up.

Hyper 8 is the newestl from Ofna, mbx5r is the newest from Mugen, Cl-1 is the newest from GS.


Hyper 8- ugly body, but from what I've see with most Ofnas, is that they LOOK well built. Iv'e never owned one so I cant say for sure.

mbx5- handles great, looks killer, but parts wear out fast and still needs upgrades before it hits the track( stock, original kit needs an ackerman plate, front shock tower)

Cl-1 - haven't driven it yet. Mary Korn is always in the show at big races so the car must be good.

You will be fast with any buggy. However out of those you have listed the mugen probly has the best parts quality.
