I had a EB48.2 previously and it was a great car but I LOVE my Mugen. If you choose to go 7R-Eco you won't be disappointed

For me the Mugen seems more stable and easy to drive but still has tons of steering. I'm able to be more aggressive while still being consistent, i.e. not crashing.

I agree with jjg690 but, I'm going to have to still give the EB48.x the nod. It may be that I had so much time and a great handle on how to tune the Tekno or that it fit my style. The two cars drive different and require to be driven different.

My mugen is coming around tho. The quality of metals are good, but I'm becoming disappointed in the plastics. I'm already on my 2nd set of arms 4 races in because the originals warped like a sheet of plywood left in the rain and the wing is equivalent to a wet noodle.

Low use to me mean little wear on chassis, Drive cups , and nice body and tires , I'd go up to $350. A beater should sell for $200.

first breackage ! playing around in the garden on 3s lipo. my second lipo ever on my mbx...
rear arm shaft went trough the plastic bushing ! i don't even understand how it could happen. I decided to shorten 1mm the arm shaft so that it doesn't push the plastic bushing. the whole mounting seems too tight too. by the way, i did drill the suspension arm at 4.2mm previously. it was also too tight.

So is the new mamba X 2200 kv set up too much or do I need to get something else? I got it for the Yeti xl but I've been pondering....

Default Centre diff mounting holes measurements

Hey fellas

I'm chasing after some measurements of the centre diff mounting holes. I'm seeing if a mugen motor mount will work on another car I'm converting.

Cheers!

That must of been one hard hit, your broke out the back of the plastic insert. I've hit hard many times and never pushed the pin through the insert. Car is fine, driving needs to improve .lol

Well I've been going to a local outdoor track, 8th scale, I'm practicing/learning others may view me as bashing but it not my intent.... LOL!

I just don't want to be way under powered or way over powered. I'd like to be in the "ballpark" for power so that I can practice getting better "around" the power that I would need to somewhat hang and compete with all the long timers.
