wtf!!! Another one already! gees you would think they might wait more than six months. This is getting as bad as computers. However, It does look good. Being an owner of the turbo myself.

that will definatly be a very competative buggy,but im very happy with my mugen again as i just sold my magic,and im still very sceptical after a whole year with trial and error with the magic and still couldnt make it handle like the mugen,basically i found the magics design although very inovative was to rigid as everyone knows but will definatly not rule out giving the magic another look in the future when i see some pros give it a floggin

Looks... Interesting. If they didn't change their cars faster than some people change their underwear, folks might actually take them seriously.

It doesn't look like a new buggy at all.... Just a M1B/TURBO with LX shocks and towers and a few other K factory bits. It's no different to Xray, Jammin, or any other manufacturer releasing 2 or three versions of the same car with only subtle changes.

The layout of the car is based on the original M1B if you look closely... I wonder when the M8 upgrade kit will come out?

I gave Team Magic a chance with their M1B. I almost hate to admit I owned two them.

The buggy was a decent starting point but IMO was released too soon. Support was very poor as well. The M1B hadn't been out a whole 12 months and they bring out the Turbo version.

If I wanted the upgraded parts, I had to buy a new M1B. Then not even another year later they bring out the M-eight?

Not a good way to maintain customer loyalty.

If the M1B was a "bomb" the turbo must have been much more so as I never heard much about it on message forums. No one I know ran the Turbo or for that matter the M1B last year at any of the Colorado races....

I think TM had a great opportunity with the name they made for themselves in on-road, but managed to make their product in off-road, undesirable....
