Default New ride.......which one?

I have been out of RC's couple of years now but I finally get money and time to start again! There is now many good looking cars in market and also couple of brand new makers(Durango, JQ). I have been reading all kind of forums and mags and I have filtered out my new car will be some of these JQ, Mugen, Xray or Team Losi.

I have tryed last season, TL, Xray Mugen and Kyosho but JQ is totally new. So hopefully you guys can tell me differences with those cars

basically... pick one and go for it... there are lots of brands and most top end brands are more then capable of winning.

there are things to considering like how long parts last etc.
i sold my losi for the mp9 because parts dont wear very fast at all(if at all sometimes) drives good too(won the worlds 2010-2011)
when the losi wears out like crazy, but it does drive very good.

for american tracks probably leave out xray as they are more for UK tracks(fast and less jumps) but still alot do use in USA.

pick the one you think looks the best and go for it
Mugen Mbx6t / O.S SPEED / Byrons / Savox servos / Futaba
Agama A8 Evo / O.S SPEED / savox / futaba
Driving the best quality cars in the market.

yea, i dont remmend a losi 1/8 scale i have a eight-t 1.0 and a eight 1.0 man the drivetrain wears and needs attention dont get me wrong it drives fine just i wish they make there drivetrain parts last longer it isnt cheap .

for quality drivetrain wise look at a kyosho, xray, associated 1/8 scales.

the odds of it at most tracks at least there is usually losi/associated 1/8 well in the usa it is.

i had an ofna/jammin crt when i first started and it lasted very well, but when it came time to update my ride i went for the mugen mbx6t. the build quality is great and it has been awesome on the track. the associated rc8t is also a good quality truck as i just recently bought one from a friend and am impressed by the quality of it. the losi is a good racer but the quality is a bit lower than the other 2 mentioned.. keep your eyes out for the new serpent truggy coming soon; and if your into high end stuff i know the durango line is awesome..

in the end it all comes down to just plain what you want to drive..
