But now I guess since the seller of the 1.0 is trying to stiff me for the money I will just let my buddy run the 2.0 or mbx6t when he goes to the track with me. Still waiting on some other stuff I bought off of here this week as well besides the 3 truggies..lol. I'm kinda an impulse buyer when it comes to rc stuff.....





thats why i dont buy used stuff from people on here thats the things that can happen.

i have a 1.0 t your friend would like it just a few setup changes and its competive at a club level .

im guessing this 1.0 t you were trying to buy dint come with a flex chassis if it dint the flex chassis makes a big diffrence.

Come on, you've thought about getting every truggy on the market.


Mbx-6t vs 8t 2.0.... I have owned and driven both. On rough tracks, the 6t is easier to drive. On blue-groove tracks, I think the Losi is smoother and more predictable. If you need more steering, it seems like you can get it easier from the Losi than the Mugen. You can get a mugen to rotate on a dime as well, it just takes more setup work.

Just my $0.02

yea im still desideing on what do get but i do have more support with losi and associated though like i was saying i hardly ever see a mugen truggy or a d8t.

but i do race on a rough track and it sounds like its good on it and i do like the rear to rotate and do like steering.

I picked up my M-Spec through Stormer last year. Bob's always treated me well!

Great ride Frank. I think you'll be impressed.

since its lighter than most and nimble is it still stable like heavyer truggys or do you just mess with the rear toe to make it more stable ?

i do race on a rough track and i heard its good on that which i like to hear.

I've found stability is quite good. I'm ony running moderate rear toe (2.75*) and find it's solid there.

Tires to suit track conditons and let her rip!

Hey Frank we have 4 expert truggys that mixed it up pretty good this summer at the track here 3 m's and 1 losi...my pit partner runs one of the mugans...they seem faster, but stay off the pipes..the lower a-arm seems to have a weak point around the droop screw and keep the diffs shimmed ..they run the alum. center diff case, and kingheads motormount besides that the rest is stock if you get one just keep a lookout around the droop screw for cracks. you know all the issues the losi has lol... my pitman loves his and his worlds motors lol...must be nice
