OK cool. Please let us know how it works. I'm going to try some different piston combos too.

None until you drive it stock. Then decide if you stiffer or softer springs and sway bars. Different oils for shocks and diffs. Ect.....

Any tips for pulling the shock end off? How do you hold the shaft without scratching it?

Can anyone tell me if a tekno v4 chassis for the mbx6 will work on the 7? The diff cases are the same part number so they should bolt up, but not sure about the steering post locations. Thanks.

Hey guys!
I just placed my order for my new Mugen mbx7r eco today! Stoked, can’t wait. Been running an RC8.2e for over a year now so I’m sure this will be a much better overall kit. Looking forward to it! I do have a quick question though. I like running the DE Racing front and rear skids. I do not see one out yet that is for the 7r specifically. I see the ones for the 7 though. Will they fit and work just the same? I know the chassis has changed a little on the 7r but I’m not sure as to what or where. Thanks!

Below are the parts I am wanting to place on the 7r eco.

The front bumper is awesome. The rear skids are so-so. I always run the front but may or may not run the rear.

Instead of using skid plates that affect your ground clearance, ride height measurements, & how the chassis slides when it bottoms, I HIGHLY recommend the M2C chassis.
