Default Driving characteristics

Hey guys, I am looking to get back into 1/8th scale buggy. I have been out of it for a while. I have been reading through each of the individual cars threads, in an attempt to decide which car would best fit my driving style ( sportsman, stable, not twitchy, easy to drive). Is there a list somewhere or could someone compose a list of what the basic handling/ driving characteristics are of each car. From what I have gathered so far, it appears that the mugen, sworkz, and associated may fit my driving style the most, but I am not sure as I am not experienced with any of these. Thank you in advance.

There is no magic 8 ball for your answer....
what I can tell you is most all box setups are designed to make a car neutral and stable to a point.
easy to drive is all in who holds the controller.
If racing is in your future,take a day to go to the track and your local hobby shop.you will learn the most there...

Choosing a car without driving it is like choosing an outfit from bar code numbers. You have to try to see if it suits you first.

That said I, see here in this thread if it helps.

Dang if that's the case, no one will buy anything. Many don't have an opportunity to drive all the brands before they buy.
