what are you talking about with the diff? All i had to do is fix the chassis flex. I bought a 20$ brace. No mods needed (although i have a bunch)

Hmm, my son drives for Mugen and we have not heard of that. Only mod we did to his buggy is a King Headz extended motor mount. His car is as good as any Losi indoors and outdoors or even better. We learned alot indoors with the buggy and it is DIALED!!

As far as working on. I have owned all of the major brands, all seem about the same to work on to me. The all have benefits and downfalls.

MBX6 hands down the best buggy on the market right now


Very unlikely Mugen is coming out with a new buggy, the X6 is gaining popularity and winning races, plus the platform is relatively new. Now if it was a Kyosho or Xray I would believe the rumor, they release a new car every year or sooner.

Sup Eddie?

They are gaining popularity and picking up alot of wins too. All the current cars are good. I don't think there is a bad one out there. Some cars suit some drivers some don't. I remember Drake spankin everyone with a Jammin. Some guys can drive a 2x4 if they had to.

Hey Randy, Back into the racing scene again, going to Jtec tomorrow, was there a few weeks ago, made the podium in the A main, not too shabby for all the time I had off, hopefully i can find a shock shaft for my AE car, no hobby shops in Indy carry 1/8 stuff unless its a losi, if not Ill drive Mr Warrens Tamiya.

I concidering going back to the MBX6, the RC8b drives great, but seems to require some frequent parts replacement due to wear

let me rephrase. The mugen is set right out the box. BUT, if you are starting out and a terrible driver like i was you will tweek the chassis because you don't know how to land properly without bending it.

pretty sure i don't need the mount anymore, but a one piece mount in general is sweet.
