I race 1/8 scale but i can tell you that the second package is better, assuming they are both in same condition... or similar...

You cant go wrong with the mugen. the plastics on that car is almost indestructible and its a clean solid design. i personally would take the os engine over the other package as os is known for its reliability. got 3 engines from os, all running well. it might not be as powerful as the italian mills but it can hang with the best

Definitely go the Mugen option - much better quality, and the motor is a hell of a lot better.
