Not only do the new diffs hold more fluid. If I counted right, the sun gears have more teeth on them which I would assume will give those diffs a different feel.

Anybody in this forum local to me, (harriburg,pa). Just picked up a new r yesterday, looking forward to the build. Have 2 sets of 5 x 1.35 pistons I was going to drill one set to 1.45 which is pretty close to 6x1.3 surface area. (1.35 =6.75) (1.45= 7.25) 6x1.3 =7.2.
Anyone still running the 6 holes with good luck. Mostly running at Trains and Lanes and LcRc

I ran 6x1.3 tapered Kyosho pistons when I had my Eco and they were an enormous upgrade from the 5x1.35 Mugen flat pistons. Just handled the rough stuff a lot better

Rob,

If it is a new car, I think they have 8 x 1.3. That is what we are running.

Hey guys,
I just ordered a MBX&R Eco and was wondering if the Proline Predator body for the nitro will fit the Eco?
Thanks!

The associated electric predator body will fit but
The front has to trimmed for clearance for the front upper arms on the mugen. I have heard the mbx7r nitro body will fit but just barely runs the battery straps.

Adam told me the Predator body fits fine... I have not ordered mine yet but I run the reedy 5200's so i should be fine if height is an issue... Adam runs full size packs and didn't mention it hitting but i'm sure it is possible depending on the pack and wire routing..
Hope this helps ..... and no prob, anytime..

Hey guys I just got a MBX7R eco and love it. I was wondering what setup you guys would recommend on a medium sized outdoor track. It is a loose track with some dust and it's bumpy. Some areas are hard packed. It hooks up good when watered of course. Also what tires do you recommend I have the enduros and catapults and don't care for either honestly. Thinking city blocks.
