Duratrax is very good at this, hmmmm, I wonder why? You think it will catch the eye of a beginner that wants to get a buggy but doesn't have enough money to get the Kyo 7.5 Kanai or a Mugen? Man just face it, Duratrax vehicles are low-budget vehicles suited for beginner's. They are made to drive easy, you will get way more tuning options with a race-engineered buggy like the Mugen or Kanai 7.5. How many sets of springs are available for that Durash*t, I mean Duratrax, what about pistons for the shocks, how many do you get? Man I could go on and on but I know, a race-engineered buggy will have more tuning options. I'm not dissing Duratrax, hell without them the hobby would be more expensive but I seriously do not beleive that they are intended for serious racing.

You cannot say running your car full throttle to the wall, will never break anything. Duratrax, kyosho, mugen etc. once you hit a wall full throttle it will brake.

Kyosho are great in design and balancing the car. That is one of the reason they tend to last long on the race.
Actually the plastics that kyosho uses arent the same you'll find in any other kit. They give a bit rather than bieng brittle, and they will hold up to a pounding better than any other buggy I've raced with.

Well, looks like you just added that post to start a flame. If you had actually read this post you would have seen that I have an EB-4 as well.

I've been watching this thread since the beginning, and even made a little [email protected]$$ remark, but nvrmnd.

DR RushQuake PH, I dont wanna tell you off or anything, but you're not helping. You just keep "egging it on" or keepin it going. Who cares what everyone thinks, I'm not saying that I like DuraTRASH or anything. I agree with NoPepsiForYou. I'm just letting you know that you should shut your mouth. You're just pissing people off.

here Randman.

We cannot stop them to argue on small things. We can state all of our opinion and its up to the author and reader if they want to start arguing on things that its nonsense to argue.

Honestly, there is no arguement on this matter.

Rush, loves his Duratrax.

Most of us knows that Kyosho Mugen have better quality than duratrax.

Done, this a fact not just on all of us. Even on the track, Kyosho and mugen will hold their reputation for a long time.

I agree 100% with everything you just said, and yet I am sure that statement will still be argued by someone, and I have a good guess who. Everything you said is fact, not opinion.
