well now I'm going to make this baby even lighter with my own custom CF parts. I'm going to make my own carbon fiber parts to lighten this baby even more.

Old original MBX5 turnbuckle chassis stiffners make a world of diff,one of the cheapest & most noticable changes you can make to the R car. You can actually drive through a corner instead of snapping through it all for $25,not to mention going straight through pot holes on the straight.

A V-spec and .053 pipe! rofl

j/k

As mentioned, the plastic chassis brace, at least for the front. It will improve steering.

Lighter front swaybar.

Jammin big-bores... ignore the stuff about the shafts breaking. I'm hard on cars, and I NEVER bent or broke one on either the buggy or truggy. You'll need the longer stand-offs to make them fit.

The Mugen is tough and stable, good choice of a platform.
