Do most of you guys oil both parts of the air filter? I was thinking that since I'll be racing on an indoor track that has plenty of moisture and little to no dust, I'd just oil the inner part and not the outer. What are your thoughts?

Oil both , you may get away with it on a indoor track with no dust , but i would always oil both then you can change the outer and the inner stays spotless

Just a quick question as I couldn't seem to use the search.

I was wondering if the R parts could be used on the Prospec? As I know that some of the parts are interchangeable between them but was wondering about Chassis and steering.

Thanks

Yes the chassis will work, almost the same except for cut outs for more down travel with the longer R shocks. Steering parts will also work as long as you replace the complete steering.

Anyone need any MBX5/MBX5R/MBX5T parts I have a ton of stuff I just
uploaded to my For Sale sheet. I marked 95% of it at 65% off retail
(that's 30% less than dealer cost). The few popular items I listed a
little below 50% off retail.

I also have a ton of other stuff on there. 1/8th Buggy tires, MT/Truggy
tires, 1/8th buggy wheels, Mugen KingHeadz upgrades, etc.

I even have a brand new Strobe MBX5/R/T one piece motor mount with both
sets of rails (37.0mm and 37.5mm).

Not listed I also have a HT Batteries LiPo balance charger, a new HT-
210 1200mah LiPo and a new HT-410 7.0 volt regulator w/ switch.

Finally if you guys need MBX6 parts I parted out a few kits on EBay the
last two weeks and on my website. I priced it all at 50% off retail on
my website but I want to move what's left. So if you are interested in
anything I have under the Mugen section for your MBX6, email me and
I'll knock off another 30% off!

If you guys want any of this stuff, email me at tony@tony1034.com

I just picked up a MBX5r buggy and would like to use 5t diffs. What diffs\spur\clutch bell will I need to purchase to complete this diff conversion? Also what can I expect from doing this? Do you guys recommend this setup?

Thanks.

So it's only the external gears(not the internal) I would need to replace, right?

Thanks slow coach for your help.

Hi Guys,

-Mugen Seiki MB5R
-Hong Nor Big Bore 16mm shocks
-Novarossi Plus 4 Factory Tuned engine
Any chance of competing against the 6, 808, and MP9?

Trying to gauage where I stand for this season. My MBX5R is about a year old, done about 6 months of racing. I've always found it to be a reliable, solid buggy. Intend to race it at this years Queensland Championships in Townsville, Australia. Not convinced by the MBX6. What do you reckon?

Cheers,
Michael

You won't be at a disadvantage at all. Have you raced against Losi 8B's? If you can hang with them with your 5R you'll have no trouble. Run what you have!

I still race my 5r. I bought my 5r about a year ago, it was my first 1/8th scale
race buggy though I've raced 1/10th scale 2wd nitro stadium truck for many
years. Anyway my 5r went through a whole season of racing without breaking
a single part; It is build like a tank and I say that in a positive way. It takes
me about a whole season to get any car to handle exactly the way I want it
to. "My" 5r's weight is only 3190 grams so it is lighter than the x6 and that IMHO is the x6's biggest advantage.
