Davidka- yes indeed i was talking about the proline crowd pleazer, idk maybe its just me but it seems as if the front nose parts breaks off too easily. i see it quite frequently at my track aswell which is why i am only buying the original mugen body now. however i think the newer proline body might be a improvement but only time will say.
JCathey- Hola, a very good hop up to get from the get go is the optional longer front universal shafts, they will never come out of the outdrive and enable you to widen your stance quite a bit. secondly no 1/8 buggy can do w/o front and rear torque rods, i personally like the racers edge ones.
and lastly i have seen people bend the stock steering ackerman plate, i havent ever done this but i have seen it done so you might want to invest in that but not too necesary. if you buy the mbx5 you will definetly be happy, just try and find someone good at your local track to help you along with setup.
