Mugen MBX6
8IGHT 2.0!

Both the 6 and 2.0 are awesome racing machines. Read through the treads and decide which is better for you.

the mugen x6 is awsome as well is the 2.0. months ago with the x6 there was issues with tuning it because its new designs. now though with the ones iv seen and been around they are tunable with help from others that race it. the 2.0 is greatly tunable for different tracks and layouts as well..

altogether id go for the one of the two that people at your track run so you can get help tweeking. they are both very tunable and great race buggys. in time you can learn easily from there manuals and online, but nothings as good as help at the track.............

I to had the mbx5r but instead of going with the 6 I thought I would try the 2.0. and im glad I did because it has been nothing but good. I have also drove the 6 and in my opinion the 2.0 handles better but a lot of ppl with disagree. But just read up on both of them and just pick the one that sounds best.

nothing really. If you get the updated kit with the aluminum upper arm bracket you should be good. Sand the bulkheads and diff cups and that will save you some possible headaches later. My chassis has a small tweak in it. But then again i jump mine pretty hard. Hell i have 5 gallons on mine and all i have had is a cracked front shock tower. I replaced it with a aluminum one. No problems. GREAT CAR!!!!
