Cool ofna ultra mbx

hey guys, i have been told that putting a two speed in a ofna buggy would make it really fast but along with these forums i have read that a two speed with the buggy would be screwed, granted if i do get it ill be doing metal gears but is it really worth the time and money? please people help me out on this, im currently rebuilding the buggy from the ground, right now everthing works but i just want to get rid of rusted parts. i just slapped in a axial .28RR motor in it. so yea please let me know pro's and cons of a two speed buggy!

Thanx

Daniel

There are no pro's! By the time it gets up to ludicris speed..it will be past your radio. Stick to 1 speed

how well do you think it would do at a track with a axial .28RR motor? and can i get any advice on a good neutral clutch bell and spurr gear tooth setting i was some good acceleration as well as speed. so any help with this subject would be greatly appreciated!

Not legal to run a .28 engine in a buggy to race, unless your track does not care..how big is your track?

If your buggy is for the open road the drop the two speed in there, but if your intending to go track bound then keep that single in the two cannot handle the constant shifting esp. when your airborne it shift more than you want and you'll be back to the single in no time, open fields and high speed passes is what the 2 speed is for.
