Default Thinking if selling my xray 808 what to get

I might sell my 808 as a kit what would be the best kit for me thinking about a used mbx-6R or MBX-6 but what do you guys think would be a good used buggy and how much should I sell my xray for

Well in my opinion the Mugen is a downgrade from the 808, get an XB9. He'll I will sell u a used XB9 '12 I used for 6 months at most since I always have 2 of each car for $275 shipped

Not really sure what the 808 is worth anymore now that the XB9 has come out and already on it's 2nd revision. I have 2 complete 808 11' models with enough spares to make a 3rd and get sick to my stomach what little it is worth today. Still a good buggy in my opinion for the average joe.
As for a new to you buggy, I would look at spending a little extra and get a used Kyosho TKI3 you wont be disappointed. Or if out of the budget, maybe a used JQ yellow roller. Awesome buggy with very inexpensive parts compared to the xray and Kyosho. Good luck with you decision.

Am not sure which 808 you have, but I would reconsider getting the xray again xb9, it is a totally different car nothing compared like the 808.

It is much easier to drive just as tough as the 808 if not tougher, and easier to maintain, with much less maintenance. The new xb9'13 is supposed to be even better then the xb9 version one, whcih I find hard to believe, since I found the xb9 version that i ran last season to be flawless.

No the 2013 is better, maintenance wise, i am finding i have to replace my driveshaft pins less now since the angle of the driveshafts from front to rear is pretty close to straight. On top of that, the amount the car free rolls now is great versus the previous which was not bad. 2013 also has better steering than the 2012 without having to buy the 5 deg blocks.

The Mugen is a serious downgrade. I ran my Muge 3 races and ran back to my Xray.

Get an Xb9.
