The X5T truggy at the hobby shop is the standard MBX5 buggy kit with the non-used buggy parts removed and the MSR conversion added. It does not have long arms. The long arm truck due out this summer is being designed and tested by Mugen Japan.
But, I agree that the Mugen truck this summer will be a major contendor in the truggy race. Four Mugen MSR's with wheel extenders all made it into the A-main at the Nitro Challenge a few weeks back. Hughes & Tillman turned just as fast lap times as Bradley with the CRT, Pavidas with the ST-R and Maifield/Saxton with the ST-1's. All the other trucks had a long arm suspension, where the Mugen's still had wheel extenders. Hughes even ran the 30mm long ProLine extenders with offset wheels. The truck was as wide as it was long and still ripped.
