Exclamation Serpent 966 T.E or Mugen MRX-5

Hello from Greece.
After 12 Years away from My greatest love ( 1/8 on road ) I decided to get back ready for action.
For 6 years I was racing with serpent models until 1999 when My last car was a Serpent Vector.
The problem is that I believe that Mugen MRX-5 is better than SERPENT 966 T.E and I am ready to place the purchase.
Please help because I realy don't know which one to choose between those two and the Greek Championship start at the middle of January.
PLEASE HELP!!

How do the Motonica, Kyosho, Serpent, Capricorn, and Mugen all compare?
What are the positives and negatives of each car? Also if their are any brand names I missed please add them.

With a Capricorn LAB-C801 all of those aluminum parts are included in the kit, it comes fully loaded as stock.
