Can I fit MBX6 shocks onto the MBX5R?
If so what additional parts do I need?

P.S. Does anyone know who might have PROSPEC shock shafts in stock?

The 6 shocks fit just fine, and the 6 shafts are the same as the Prospec shafts. I bent one of the big bore shafts on my 5r and have been useing a prospec shaft for over 2 months.

More then likely you will need the 6 shock stand off's to keep the cap smashing into the tower.

Got lucky, found a hobby shop that carries tons of MBX5 and MBX5R parts.
It was their #1 seller so they have lots.

I have quite a few MBX5, MBX5R and MBX5T parts left but don't have them listed on my website. I posted a list a while back on the buy/sell forums but those threads get buried quick. If you need anything feel free to drop me an email at tony@tony1034.com and I'll let you know if I have it. I priced it all at less then dealer cost. I sold my MBX5R a while ago so this stuff is just sitting around collecting dust...LOL

I'm also a Mugen dealer and place orders weekly so I could always order something I don't have as well.

Best regards,

I also have an MBX-5R race roller in very good condition that I will sell for a VERY good price (negotiable). Included is a bag of miscellaneous spare parts, and a painted (never used) body. Just email me at info@glolar.com.

Regards
