Default Necessary Mugan MBX-5 upgrades???

Just bought a Mugen MBX-5 kit and was wondering what upgrades are a must have. Is there a total package upgrade available? And if so, who's the best value for the money and links to their site would be appreciated. I don't want a bunch of bling. I just want to cover the weak links in the standard package. Thanks for the help.

Ron

throw in a set of the thunder tiger option disc brakes and the mugen light weight pillow balls.

The king headz steering servo holder thing or what ever its called is a really nice piece too, helps to keep the servo from moving around.

I logged over 8 gallons on my first mbx5 and the only issues I had were the front hinge pin brace and the ackerman plate. Both are stamped aluminum and break easily. Other than that it was a great car.



i've got better brake rotors ( g-10) if your interested.
