The Hyper9 is a really cool buggy. I believe the Mugen to be of better quality. I have only seen one or two Hyper9's on the track, like I said, they look really cool and appear to handle just as well as any other buggy on the market. There are plenty of MBX-6 buggies around and they are amazing buggies.

Hyper 9 is a cooler car. The have worked out most of the kinks finally. The GL version is pretty hard to beat, the 17 super big bores with 4mm shafts are the best shocks out, dont follow the herd be the nerd with the Hyper
XRAY XB9. Rubber tires with foam inside and super glue to keep them on. Cheap, but fast radio, high dollar servos, savox, mostly.
Cheap .21 engine. Modern starter box, finally!

The 801x handles like the X5R, nothing like the 6.
I really cant find any good reason to choose the hyper 9 over mbx6.

Send a message via Yahoo to windellmc

The Mugen can be set up to handle just about any way you want. You have to work on the setup though.
