Default Buggy Choice

I'm looking to buy a buggy soon and have found a couple on e-bay that I am interested in.
They are the Mugen MBX5R prospec and the Ofna Hyper 8. Which one would you guys say is better and why. I will be using it for club racing.
Thanks
Scott

If you are going to get a Hyper get the 8.5. I have both the Hyper 8 Pro and the Hyper 8.5 Pro. The 8.5 handles better.

He did not say if they buggies where new or used RTR or what. I am guessing used since both are older models. RR Mods how many Mugen's and Hyper 8 or 8.5 have you had?

RR Mods I see your are running a Hyper 7 according to one of your post! How come you are running it and not a Mugen if they are so much better then a Hyper?

So are you saying the Hyper 7 is easier to drive then a Mugen? I did not have my Mugen long as when I got my Hyper 8 I like it better then the Mugen so I sold it. Yes the Mugen held up well but not any better then either my Hyper 8 or 8.5.
