Drake's setup is interesting. He's running a more level ride height and lowered the front roll center to compensate. Also running reactive caster. I'm going to try his setup this weekend.

He ran a tekno style traktion drive on his 8ight 3.0 last year at one race I know of. Maybe that's what it refers to.

Hello. I want to get one of these Mugen MBX7 mainly for bashing and maybe once a month track practice. I probably wont be racing. Do you guys recommend this car for bashing? Or is too high-end for bashing? Also, what is the difference between the MBX7 M-spec and the MBX7R? Are these MBX7 durable or do the break easily like the mp9e readyset rtr. I was thinking of the mp9e RTR but I heard they break alot. I'd rather dish out a few extra bucks for the Mugen. Everyone tells me that I cant go wrong with a mugen whether it be racing or bashing or occasional track laps. Thanks!

You can't find a car as durable as this one. Some statement, but its true. Xray xb8 is also a very durable car, but after 4 month of racing, Mugen is the winner. For bashing i guess you can say it's overkill, since this is a Pro Track racing machine, but if you have the cash, this is the car you need.

Finished my shocks the other day. Im surpriced about Mugen doesnt fix the threds on the rearshocks yet. It has been a problem ever since they started the adjustments with threds. Thing is, the long threds catches the spring when shock compresses. Look at many other brands, Kyosho, HB etc they have much shorter threds that make phe spring move freely. So now i have to lathe process the threds on this car allso. The downside doing this in postum is you dont get the anodizing as a cover to the aluminium. Othervise the car and shocks seemes good!

Some examples of other brands:
Tessmans HB


Haras Sworx


Tebos Kyosho


Quagraines JQ


and so on....!

Here you can see some rubbing from the spring on the threds:
Battles MBX7

- E2129 Front Upright
A new designed front hub carrier that incorporates the front universal to be in a trailing axle position. A new universal (E2218) is used with this hub and it uses an 8mm x 16mm ball bearing.

- E2131 Rear Upright
The rear hub carrier has been modified to allow for use of an 8mm x 16mm ball bear which is required for the new (E2219) universal shaft. This hub carrier will also allow the use of the 15mm x 21mm ball bearing too. This hub carrier can be used for either the MBX7R or MBX7.

- E2132 Front Upper Arm
The front upper suspension arm has been shorten 1.6mm. This will allow the use of the E0161 spacer between the pillar ball and the upper arm. This will allow for the same camber on each side of the buggy.

- E2133 Rear Lower Arm
The suspension arm has been modified to allow for clearance so the new E2219 universal doesnt rub the arm. This arm will work on either the MBX7R ECO or MBX7 buggy.

- E2218 Front Universal Shaft
A new design universal drive shaft set for the front of the MBX7R ECO. The E2129 front upright must be used with these universals as they require an 8mm x 16mm ball bearing. The length of the drive shaft is 91.5mm.

- E2219 Rear Universal Shaft
A new design universal drive shaft set for the rear of the MBX7R ECO. The E2131 rear upright must be used with these universals as they require an 8mm x 16mm ball bearing. The length of the drive shaft is 89.5mm.

- E2314 Steering Plate
The new steering ackerman plate has 5 adjustment holes for maximum steering adjustability.

- E2408 Wing Stay
A new wing mount that can move the wing forward maximum 10.5mm to improve traction and overall feeling of the buggy.

- E2409 Stone Guard

The sides of the stone guard are changed to fit the new chassis.
- E2411 Chassis
The side angle of the chassis has been changed to increase chassis strength. This will allow for a better feeling on all surfaces.

- E2528 Front 16mm Shock Set
- E2529 Rear 16mm Shock Set
New 16mm Front/Rear shocks which will greatly improve stability in bumps and jumps

I believe in order to run a clutch set up, you will need a special motor mount. Trying to find out any info on this. If anyone knows anything please post it .
