Default steppin down in choich of buggy!

for the last moneth ive been thinking about buying a buggy! ive been thinkin about buying a mugen mbx5! ive read just about thing there is on this car! all the reveiws and everything! And i love it!!!! But this is going to be my first car that i take serious. You know rebuildng shoucks all the time figuring out what type of oli for front and rear. settings all that good stuff! and i dont to spen 600 on a rolling chassis that im gonna smash from not having the car tunded rigth! so wut does everyone think? is this a good idea! or is there anther not so expensive way. money really is no proplem but unless u have or know someone who has a used mbx4 or x5 for i rather get sumthin else to learn with! is this a good chocih or do u think i can handle a x5? i was thinkin of gettin the new version of the hyper 7 coming out! not too sure!

or
http://ofna.com/95-violator.html
can anyone tell me the real difference between the hyper 7 and the 9.5?

i think that you should go for it, espically if money is not a problem. you did your homework and found what you want so get it.

Get the X-5. It's a all around better car.
