The new associated car is pretty much a mugen. The predator body should fit great.
That is probably why you do not see a different one for the mugen. Here is the part number for the phantom if you want to check other retailers 3433-00 and Absolute Hobbyz does have it.

Just picked up a used Mbx7r Eco and am ordering springs and wanted to make sure that the 1.5 springs are the ones I should order and I am also going to redo the shocks and wanted to know if there is a better o-ring to get then the stock ones. Thanks.

Party baloons are cheap enough to change boots every race day. I disagree about not using boots. I find the shock setup I want for local track and race it for weeks before changing oil. When I do decide to change oil the shafts and seals look new and the oil is clean. Can go two years with nothing but boots and 4 oil changes. If you race at different tracks often and service or change shock oil/pistons the boots are still good way to keep everything clean and working good. JMHO

Just picked up a used MBX7R Eco and the guy said it came with a new chassis but when I got it torn down to rebuild it I discovered that the chassis is not stock. Does anybody know what chassis this is and who makes it. The only thing the chassis is missing is the holes for the rear weight and it is also about a 1/2 inch narrower then the stock one. Just concerned if it is going to enhance or decrease performance. The pic on the left is the aftermarket one. Any help would be great.

Do whatever this guy says. I watched him put down couple of TLRs during a race. I have never seen ebuggy do what he did. It looked like it was on rails. The way it breaks, accelerates, and lands off of jumps. Impressive!

Would you mind sharing your setup. If you don't have the whole thing, I'll settle for springs, pistons, and oils. I don't even have the 7, but wold like to experiment with my 6.

Thanks.
