I would get the X5..... cheaper than K2......I've seen it run......this owner said it's better handling than the XR.....jumping, corners, landing......it is plenty quick....plenty stable.......it's like driving a Picco Integra and then change to the MRX3......very driver friendly....easy to setup too.

I WANT ONE.

Buggyman, I saw that you're selling your K2 and you just bought a new MBX5. Is there any reason for this... do you think the MBX5 is a better buggy than the K2?

Accord,
tried sending you A LOT of pics on the K2......it bounced back.


Yes.....the X5 is lighter and very easy to drive....I tried driving it. That is why I'm selling my K2.......although it handles in the jumps okay.....it is just to heavy for me.

For your information,

X5 handling will be better than K2....

Low CG for the font.....

Good for Techincal track..

I selling my K2 cos this K2 is quite heavy...
And for MBX4 XR i will keep it..COs i was a Mugen Buggy Fan..

the new MBX5 is incredible

drove it for the first time today

in my very first time putting the car on the track i was able to go 30 seconds faster going from a 9 lap 5:32 last weekend to a 9 lap 5:02

the car absolutely flys and it will jump for miles

has great stability and is just so much fun to drive

What do you think about it in comparison to a K2?
