Just concerned if it is going to enhance or decrease performance. The pic on the left is the aftermarket one. Any help would be great.
It's a Bump conversion chassis for the MBX7, look halfway down this page Mugen MBX7e

Would you mind sharing your setup. If you don't have the whole thing, I'll settle for springs, pistons, and oils. I don't even have the 7, but wold like to experiment with my 6.

Thanks.
Thanks for the props. Car was really good. I was running Drake's standard setup with the following changes:

8.0 (stock) rear spring
Lower hole in rear hub
5/7/3 diff fluids

Could someone please help me with what parts are needed to do the clutch system like Drake's?

I do know I need to shim up the diff housing.

Thanks m

Tlr makes one that will work. Part # TLR342003. I wanted to know how many of you are running the 40g weight that drakes has listed in his setup sheets.

adam drake added 40 grams in the rear ?
is it to calm down the rear end ? does he use it too on small indoor tracks ?
don't let him drive a tekno eb48, he will add 240grs in the rear end !!

Does the steering on the 7r work on the 7? Tried to mount up but having an issue obviously Ackerman plate is different but seems as if the uprights and top plate are the same.

Yes everything fits. I used my 7 steering stuff and converted everything else.

For those guys running the clutch/traktion drive system, could someone please tell me or show me how you modified your center diff mounts to get the diff flipped around? I have seen some pictures of Drake's buggy but none were close enough to really tell what was going on there. Thanks guys!!

I know he added weight at ocrc indoor, not sure on his other setups, i rarely look at his setup sheets... I have never needed to add weight.. But it could possibly make it feel more settled

I have the tekno clutch but never used it.. My son doesn't like the feel.. But I think it is a good tool for rough tracks like, silverstate

because of the pinion so close to the radio box, you have to get the servo cable through another hole !

Hey guys sorry, I know this was covered multiple times but I can find it listed. I'm just trying to see what percentage of the mbx7 Eco crosses over to the mbx7r Eco. I know most of the rear geometry is different and different chassis but is the rest mostly the same? I currently have a mbx7r Eco and love it. I have a chance to get a good deal on a clean mbx7 Eco and would use it as a parts car. Trying to decide if it's worth it. Thanks for the help.

took the most flashiest colour in the shop ( they didn't have any neon colours...)

did someone say pumpkin ?



by the way , note the proline trifecta wing : looks great ! I added the decals and it's really a nice RC piece !
wheels are premounts from Conrad : cheap but too stiff... I will use them for mild bashing and not jumping
