i know i will get hammered for this one but that's cool. go with kyosho mp9 tk 12, i know it's 800.00 but you do not have to buy one single hop up for it, just install your elecs, engine,pipe and fuel and tires of your choice. for instance take the mugen or losi very very sweet buggies , but if you purchase the hopups for those buggies you spend the same amount. IMO.

O'donnell and Mugen do not need upgrades... mater of fact, when i ran HotBodies, mine were box stock with the exception of aluminum servo horn and won many races with them that way.... i was faster with the stock buggy versus one with all the up-grades

i say look at odonnell, they are extremely nice and last forever, parts are cheap if you even break a part... i have 6-8 gallons on the team buggy and havent replaced one part except a couple hinge pins that slightly bent. the SG buggy is even nicer and im enjoying it alot, very fun and easy to drive

The mbx6 Mugen buggy drives quite like the Losi 2.0 but the Mugen likes to be Flogged. The harder you drive it, it seems to drive better, it will straighten itself out and the rear doesnt indo on you on those hard landings. At least for me anyways, but setup has alot to do with this. The Mugen doesnt break loose in the rear end as much as the Losi either. If you like to push your driving style to get faster then I would say the Mugen. If slow is fast for you and you dont over steer and have a happy throttle finger then you might like the 2.0 or the HB D8. All of these are great buggies, just find which one fits your driving style. Hope this helps you a bit. - Ryan
What do u mean the mugen likes to be flogged?
What do u mean if slow is fast for you....?
