Thats a Shumacher Swift/Protech Enigma, has nothing to do with a Mugen MBX5.
And no in this car will not fit Mugen diffs.
I drove one and its off terrible quality, good luck with finding parts for this car i think it went out off production like 3 years ago.
Also it looks very frankenstein, not the orginal shocks, fueltank etc.

Yous google and type Shumacher swift,

No problem my friend, I dont think i will race this one, the parts are very hard to find here in US (Houston, TX). I have my Losi 8ight with Brushless but i was looking to get another 1/8 Buggy to race on Nitro. I thing i will just have fun with this one at home the Power Plant is an O.S 30VG planty of power this OLD Buggy
