Default Xray 808 or mugen mbx-6r

I'm switching from my hb d8 to either on of these car the d8 isn't that durable or handle that good to me what would be the best car for handling and definitely durability and easy clean up and fixing

I just switched from a hara d8 to the mbx6r. I haven't driven the Mugen yet but the build quality is way nicer than the d8. I couldn't get my d8 to turn so that's why I,switched

Both Mugen and Xray make great quality cars and both drive very nicely. What edition of the 808 are you looking at? 09, 10, or the 11?

Agreed, go for the XB9. Now that the new one is starting to arrive in shops, you'll start seeing a lot of used XB9s popping up for sale. Gotta dump last years to get the latest and greatest.
The 808 is a solid buggy, but the XB9 addresses every handling issue the 808 had. Better turning, way better suspension, better acceleration, increased durability.
Thanks to my sponsors and friends

between the mbx6R and 808, get the mugen. i have had both these. yes the xray is more durable, honeslty the most durable cars ive owned. But compared to the mugen it is just plain slow to be frank. i agree the xb9 is better..but then there is the mbx7 which has that covered

The D8 uses some of the same style pins that the 808 and Losi use, durability wise the Mugen arms are KNOWN to fail if the driver is not that good. I would say 808 because of durability I have the 6R and liked it, I also have the losi 8 2.0 and the new Xb9 and of the three it would be Xb9, Losi, 6R in that order for aggressiveness and handling and durability. I can never seem to push my 6r hard and when I try I crash and burn or slow down to help it stabilize, but if you don't push it really hard it is a GREAT mill very nice on jumps and handles good

I drove a 7 the other day and it was a very nice car. The suspension was very plush and it accelerated like crazy. I'm about to build a xb9 2013. Well see how that goes mas for quality I don't think anyone tops x ray.
