Well, if you race in at a hobbyshop, I would consider checking local parts availability. That helps when you break down and dont want to wait for parts. If not, I would draw straws. All those kits can me made to run equally. Some just cost more ,some take more tuning. Hope this helps.

Xray, best quality buggy made. A lot of people are switching from Kyosho to the XB9 and loving it. The buggy handles great, is very receptive to setup changes, and built like a tank.

On that list I would go with the Kyosho, but I would save my pennies and buy a new one.
