Default 8ight 3.0 versus MBX7

I'm in the market for a buggy and I was wondering which would be the better buggy the 3.0 or MBX7. Or at least help me with the pros and cons of both.

With all respect, I couldn't disagree more. If one is set up poorly and the other is setup correctly, you will probablly pick the one setup correctly.
Both cars are fast and have good parts availability, but Losi can't touch Mugens quality...my 2c

You would suck or be fast with either one. That's why it comes down to sex appeal.

I just made the switch from losi, if your one of those people that are anal about slop and wear dont get a losi, car is wore out after a gallon of fuel(still fast when loose though)

Both seem to be great cars. Think mugen is way better quality though.

Losi won't break upper arms like the mugen will, and anyone who tells you the new ones don't break is a liar, they are stronger than before but they do still break in bad wrecks. The Losi develops slop faster than the mugen, and the hinge pins bend instead of the arms breaking. The slopin the Losi doesn't actually affect the way the car drives, other than it makes it easier to drive. The new Mugen is not as easy to drive as the old mbx6 was. It is much more aggressive than the old car. This is both good and bad. The old car would push, and the new car will not. You can drive the new one faster than the old! But it takes more setup. The new Losi is a thousand times easier to drive than the old Losi, but that is more a statement about how hard the old one was to drive than how great the new one is.
