Default please help me decide ASAP

Hello everyone, i need to buy a car before this weekend, but im having trouble deciding what to get. Xray, Mugen, Losi, or tekno. Ive driven a mugen and love it but ive heard of issues with the fuel tank and diff cases not being tight enough. Everyone says losi is good but i never driven one and they say their hard to tune. And tekno looks good but a little loos if you not careful. And havent really seen any xray. What i look for id steering and durabiliy. thank you

Everyone always forgets about the great HPI/Hotbodies. The D812 is know joke!

MBX7! Quality is second to none, very durable, handles great out of the box and wear is non-existent!

One question will get you many different correct answers. Buy what ever you can get parts support for and something you can have fun with.

WoW.... you needed more steering out of a D812. Now that is unheard of, however, you can't go wrong with any of your choices. Congrats on your purchase.

Mugen addressed the tank issues as a running change in the kit, should be fine as long as it's not a clear tank. No issues with diff cases. Kit quality is really good.

I have been very happy with my 2013 x ray, it turns well,t he build is the best I have experienced (6 brands), durability is awesome, they do break but it takes a lot and they drive very nicely. The Mugen is a great car as well. I would choose one of those IMO.

Losi has always been a great car but I really wish they would ditch the sae hardware. I saw their new 3.0 truggy this weekend and it looked very nice on the track, it also has the most free drivetrain I have seen to date, especially on a new build. (Just a little aside)
