Man...if people only knew who they were actually bashing, you would feel rather idiotic after the fact.

This individual can provide a TON of feedback dealing with this buggy in particular, if it be positive or negative, he is also a pretty damn good driver!

I just hope he will continue to post pics, and i am sure the most of us can just weed out the little people and their rude remarks lol

I tend to like the ignore feature

Sorry it's taking me so long to get pics up, here's a few. Let me know if there's anything specific you want to see that I didn't get a pic of.


5X10 clutch bearing on top, pinion bearing bottom



Center diff mount/brakes(sorry about the pic quality)

Photo from Kyosho

Please forgive me if I'm wrong but are your rear upper arms installed backward?

Kyosho always puts out a quality buggy.

Same thing happened to me on a Mugen truggy. Friend of mine saw it after we raced it, !

No worries, there was a pic of a MBX6 build from a pro posted last week with the steering links mounted reverse. Happens to everyone.

Yep, The rear turnbuckles are indead backwards, good thing you caught it before he ran it, although Id bet the castor would have been very noticeable
