Default how fast am i going????

mugen mbx6, os vspec, 30% nitro, 13t clutch, dynamite 086 pipe, stock setup. The thing is CRAZY fast. lets assume that it is tuned to perfection (at least i think so anyway) since i don't have a radar gun how fast am i going??? i know its a loaded question somewhat but seriously can anyone give a ball park figure??? My buggy is flat out retarded!

sure seems faster. Guess i have to get a electric to go faster. I had a rc10 about 15 years ago and it went at least 35 so this is as far as gas has come since then?? I remember a gas car the stinger going 50+ back then.


Oh i know it's not about speed.

Does it really matter? If you wanted a road machine, you should have gotten a jato or an onroad car. Buggies aren't about top speed at all.

Nowhere near as fast as you think

but look at it like this..use scale speeds and you can multiply your actual speed by 8! So in reality you are going 40 MPH, but in scale speeds that is 320MPH! Holy Chit dreaux..you got a buggy that does 320 MPH!!!!
