Will there be a new version coming out anytime soon? I see this one came out in 2014, and while it looks awesome, if a new one is coming out soonish I'll wait for that. I am just now getting into the 1/8 buggy scene and plan on getting a tekno and a mugen.

+ not to mention, the next platform will be a refined car, and the current one is more than capable still! Heck, in Europe there are racers still running MBX6 based buggies and truggies and still doing great. Can't go wrong with any Mugen.

hey let's make a wishlist for the next mbx buggy !

- stronger lower arms !
- longer lipo tray
- better LR weight distribution
- stronger body
- stronger chassis brace rear connection to the gearbox

I think most people will agree with those details ! what do you think ?

Well mugen requires their drivers to run the latest version of every car and the mbx8 is being released to them in November with the public getting a chance to get them in mid January soooooo idk what y'all been hearing...

Wow.. thanks for the info man. Guess I'll get the tekno first, then if j can find a good deal on a new/used mugen, I'll snatch it up! Not sure if it's worth buying if a new version is coming out in the next 6 months. (I bought a losi scte 2.0 back in April, now I'm salty that the 3.0 is outt) Still plenty of time to enjoy the car in that time.


Someone throw a used one cheap to me!! Plllllzzzzz

well , first look the new one ! you never know what can go through their head ! some details can be a NO GO for me ! like carbon shocktower or some weird ball bearing or even a ugly body !! but that's just my point of view

I agree, one bright side would be that buying a used Mbx7r Eco would be a little cheaper once it comes out. I live in Florida so I can race all winter, so I can get quite a bit of time out of it before the next platform comes out. Obviously since there isn't a date or info about a new buggy, it wouldn't be a bad choice to get the 7

Interesting because we are also on the team and not one word of that has been put out to us.

Mugen will be very tight lipped about anything until you see it on neo or Liverc.

I haven't seen anything about a new version, but with it being almost 2 years old, you wouldn't think it would be much longer..

So they don't tell you guys anything until the last minute either?

Its the same across the board. New rig is being tested somewhere and only hand full of people will know anything about it. Normal ops, NTR, Nothing To Report.
