Default ofna hyper 9 vs mugen mxb6

Im just now deciding to get into the compititon of R/C racing. In doing so I've came across two buggies that I like there is about a $50.00 difference between the two kits. So my question is realy this what is the pros and cons between the two?

This can be an tough one. They are two very diff. kind of cars. I think the most important thing is part support if your going to just start out. Just go to your local track and sniff around and ask lots of questions. Then check the LHS and see whats offered. Don't be in a hurry, make a smart move 'cause darn near every time it comes down to LOVE every time. See you at the track.

I agree..You will decide what you want, and no-one can talk you out of it, and you will love what you buy and it will be the right choice for you, and once you learn to drive and you become good if you think your bug is holding you back, you will sell it and love something else..

Pick the one you want, they are both awesome cars!

I can't say I've done a thorough review of each buggy, but I'll be able to give some insight on the build quality of each of them on Tuesday when my H9 kit gets here.

I don't understand the whole parts availability. Well sort of, if i am racing and have to absolutley have it right this second then i guess, yea, parts support is good. But even though i can get some of the parts at my lhs, i still order everything online. No hassle, cheeper, don't have to leave my house. And it will be at my doorstep in 2 days!! Other stuff you might need, clutch springs, shoes, bell, bearings, gaskets, tires, etc can be bought at any lhs. Keep parts that are likely to break in your box. Suspension arms and parts, hub carriers, shock towers etc.

so with that, just go with the mugen 6!!!!!!!

Dreaux, whats not to understand about parts availability?
Do you want to buy another kit just to keep on hand for parts? Sure you can stock up on common parts, but guess what will break in the first heat race, the part you don't have.

Buy one of everything to have on hand..........fine, you run it for a month and decide you want something else. Yep, you gonna get back about 50 cents on the dollar.

Some folks are not lucky enuff to be located where hobby shops carry one of everything, but for those that are, IT IS SO SWEET!!!!!. That is if you bought something that they stock.

i understand. But to me, to buy a buggy based on parts availibility is the wrong reason to buy a buggy. Buy what you want the most, then again i am not a pro by any means. I do it for the fun and excitment. besides if you buy a xray or mugen it wont' break anyway

this is jmho. And it's probably the only like this on the board. But then agian i have never been like everyone else

H9 comes as a roller, or at least 80% ready..I think you just build the shocks

MBX6 is a full kit

Dont get me wrong the Moog is sweet but I have to say the H9 is the most innovative car out there. I like both of them but if I were car shopping i would have to go with the H9. It comes with lunsfords good foams good tires and body. I cant get over the size of the diffs they are super fast out of the corner.

Unless they changed it, and nobody said anything..Its an 80% built race roller

If they switched it to a full kit somebody would have mentioned it. I've been following it since it was a thought 50 years ago. It took too long to be released and I went with the XRAY 808..(which I am very happy with)

Thank you very much for the insight and I have looked at the xray 808 my be wrong to say the only real thing that kept me from seriously looking deeper into the xray was the price tag but on the other side sometimes you get what you pay for also.

I will tell you this, after 6 full months of racing and bashing/practice I did not break 1 part, and my car had no slop in it what so ever..If you ask any XRAY owner they will tell you the same. The cost of the kit pays for itself 3 times over because you dont need $200 worth of spare parts in your box..

But you will buy them anyway because we are all obsessed
