Default From Kyosho to Capricorn good idea ?

Hey people how do these brands compare to each other especially in 1/8 onroad. I know that the K M3 Evo car is a bit old but still handles great and it's like a tank not mentioning the quality of it's plastic and aluminium quality. I mean how is Capricorn finish, built quality, plastic quality and drive feel. Does everything fit like a glove like it does on a K car and are they durable?

The Capricorn LAB C801 is a very nice car, fit and finish is perfect, plastic parts are strong, the awesome machining of the aluminum parts and the design is just robust! parts support is also great! you won't regret having the Capricorn car.

Get the Capricorn, much better car. I used to have a M3, and the durability of the steel parts is not good at all, they wear out way too fast.

With the momentum that the cap car has I can see the support at trackside increasing the car looks sweet I have the K car & it performs very well but the support is low & the competition in the 1/8th class has grown with all the new brands it's a hard choice for anyone to decide these days

I'd love to see what Kyosho's cooking up, but in the meantime, you can't beat the World Champion Mugen for the price, IMHO; reasonably-priced kit/parts and you won't have a car that will be obsolete every six months.

what do you mean by absolute every six month since Capricorn has just come out not mentioning that Mugen is quite fragile as I saw lots of breakages at our track.
