I have run 2S with a Tekin 4300HD motor. I can get 10 minutes with a 8000mah 90c 2s lipo. It moves out good and is easy to drive. Runs a little hot.

You really need a 4s setup to run with top guys in ebuggy. The 1900 motor is designed for ebuggy and 4s lipos. It is the most popular motor in ebuggy class at the tracks I have raced.

Your 3300 30c lipo is ok for a 2wd buggy, but it's not even close to the right size for ebuggy. Talk to your local racers and ask lots of questions. That is your fastest way to getting the info you need about what works at your track for ebuggy.

You are looking at the right class. Ebuggy is growing everywhere.

Yea, that 2s setup thunder is running is nice for indoor,pretty fast, but like he said, the 4s guys will kill you...the best lite setup I ever saw was the mip conversion for the tlr scte..

Yes Sir, I spent over a year on MIP Pro8 Super Light Buggy. Check that thread out for the scoop on the best combos. Short version, Tekin 1950KV with 4s lipo, 3500-4500mah is money. It can run with heavy weight rigs, just slightly less durable. Clean drivers love it. If you are not a clean driver or race large outdoor type tracks, the Mugen is an excellent buggy.

If you want an easy to drive ECO the 1950KV with 4s is a great choice with a 4500mah lipo. It allows you to drive hard and stay under control. If rules allow 4s, the 1900 is your best bet as you wont need to upgrade power later if you ever wanted more.

I still think talking to the local ebuggy racers will get you the info you need for your track. Buy the right thing the first time and it only hurts once

I have gone down in mAh for some years now. This summer i have run Revolectrix 3600 HV LiPos. Weight on a 4cell is only 3700g (it says 3900 but actually only 3700). The HV lipos let you charge each cell to 4.27v instead of the older 4.20v. This and the good quality on these manufacturer makes the car lighter then a nitro w/o fuel and still runs more then 15min on hard running tracks!

Much smother driveline. If you know the MBXs there famous to "eat" outdrives and shaft pins, mostly in front. Thats a sign of binding and wear, wear is the same as binding. S many benefits here!

Tekin RX8G2 and T8 1900kv! Notice that these batterys are not to compare to lowpriced junk!

tnx, I am very surprised that you were able to get so much time on a small battery. I used revolectrix batteries on another car, but now they do not deliver to Russia.

Hi guys,

I find my car handles much better with a lightweight battery... I don't have a scale but how far off minimum weight is the car? I am wondering if with a @499g pack it may be too light?

Thanks,

Dave

The car can hardly get "to light" running vice! I dont know i you guys have a mini weight, but i run 4s 3600mAh weight 370g a pack! I allso use the Tekin T8i (indoor) 1900kv motor to compensate for the low battery weight. That works great, could never go back to those massive 6200-7500mAh, they are stupid heavy!

ok thanks. i didn't run my mbx yet, but I guess it's the same thing as my hobao hyper 9e : because the front gearbox is angled, the front joints wears much more
