Yes the mugen arms fit. Also the Caster Racing ZX1-R arms fit perfect too. Actually the mugen rear lower arms will not work quite right. The outer lower hinge pin on them is thinner than the OCM. You will have to use a Caster one if you cannot get a OCM.

ocm arms to flexy..?
again they are real good, even too hard
if you change to mugens or another brand, you will alter the geometry
and it won't drive as good/different
lower mugen arms also will break more easy

new ones have curved antiroll-bar fixations
to avoid damage in rear-on collisions
and incoming conical gear goes straight in
not at an angle anymore...
ask Holeshots or special-rc on ebay

I mounted the new soft fr/rr arms featuring -2mm track reduction
to be used with +1/+2 mm hubextentions, so one can tune track
... personally I run with +0 hubs up front
reducing front track , creating more rotation..

DE protection shields for D8 share the same chassis holes..





replaced all 2.0 flathead screws with 2.5 capheadscrews for ease of assembly
even those holding together the bulkheads..really like it..






mounted the kyosho yellow springs but they are to stiff
