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.
It's worth it, the shocks and the rear tower is the biggest difference.. Oh, and the uni's

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

PUMPKIN. LOOKS GOOD

I was told that some people were using tlr diff on the mugen for more traction.
Anyone tried? which one all 3?

Default Mbx7r Eco Tekin 2050 Gearing?

I just bought my first buggy and I'm trying to understand what the best spur / pinion gear to go with. I'm running the Tekin 2050 motor with 14t / 46t. What's the most common setup for this motor?

14t and stock spur is what I found to work just about anywhere and I have 2050 tekin factory settings.

OK, so I modified diff mount and flipped it but the biggest problem I see is the spur gear rubs the chassis. I tried the 46t and 44t and they both rub. Are people making a spacer for under the diff mounts? I got everything to work except that.

CA glue 4 washers to the bottom of the diff mounts.

Also make sure you use the metal spur gear with the clutch. The plastic gear gets hot with the clutch and will strip out easier.
