Different cars do have different drive characteristics. This past weekend I drove a different buggies in each qualifier and in the end my times were within 1 sec. So 90% driver is a very true statement. I have driven a Losi buggy for over a year and they are a solid performer, parts are everywhere and they are the most durable buggy I have seen. I haven't driven a Mugen buggy but I absolutely lobe the 6t truggy. It just does everything well. I have tested 3 different buggys in the past 6 months and all I can say is find a buggy and stick with it. Give it time to find a setup that works for you.

Losi, Mugen and Kyosho are probably the 3 best on the market.

While I have flirted with other manufacturers, I've returned to Losi twice now because I find it very easy to drive fast. The wear is not as bad as people make it sound. Buy yourself a pin tool to swap driveline pins once in a while and you will be fine.

The only Mugen I have driven was set up in such a way that I couldn't drive it very well. It was smoother in the corner, the steering felt much more relaxed, and it didn't do that Losi pivot which I enjoy. It handled the bumps and blown out spots considerably better than my Losi.

I say Mugen Mbx-6, its easy to work on, great to drive, and the parts are not as expensive as most cars. Look at the Mbx-6 M-Spec, it comes out of the box pre built, all you have to do is drop your motor, exhaust, and radio gear in the car. And gas-and-go!

Well, you're actually hearing from one tick-turd that has just about ran them all. While wasting 2 good years trying to make the Hot Bodies D8 work, I decided to go to Losi because of the price at the time. If not for that price, I would have more than likely went with Mugen. Now that I'm running the Losi, I have really enjoyed the car. I know it don't fit some but you're simply over-driving the car. Just drive and let the car do the work and you're actually faster than you realize.
Alot of good cars on the market today and you're going to get alot of opinions so good luck on the road you choose.
