It's very easy to setup and drives really nice. I have an mbx7 & mp9(tki4). After around 8 full packs the e817 gains rear traction and handles really nice.

Seems pretty durable except for the center front chassis brace, I have a slight bend in it, I'll try the vrp one.

I doubled up the stock orange chassis brace and haven't bent one since

I have run the Mugen for years and recently picked up an E817. Both fantastic cars. The E817 felt more planted to me. I immediately was comfortable with it and was turning the same and better lap times right away.

Great buggy, Just a tip to try. Run emulsion and 6x1.3/1.4 with light oils.

You should be running at least a 19 tooth pinion at bare minimum
