I have driven both. MBX5T has more steering. Sensitive.
STRR just sticks to the ground and handles better.

Both are good kits. But I'll go for the STRR as it's much easier to drive.

I have not had a chance to drive the STRR yet, but after only one run under my belt with the MBX5T I am loving it. I believe you will be happy with either truck (both are great trucks). I chose the MBX5T mainly because if I broke something that I did not have there are several locals that have tons of parts. I would check to see the availability of parts at my LHS.

You looked like you were having fun driving Murnan's STRR Saturday. Can we say POWER and long run times. hehe Looking forward to June 7th.

The MBX5T has no Cons... LOL the strr is also an awesome truggy. Here is what it came down to for me. Strr is expensive! Parts expensive, the strr build is long and "sloppy" lots of shimming.. In my opinion this kit requires alot of work.
Mugen's price is right! The kit builds quick and easy and it's awesome to drive.
Good luck
