I've ordered mine as soon as I received the press release. No doubt for me that the buggy will be better than the current RC8B. I hope it will more forgive my driving style

If the release date still end Sept. I assume I'll receive mine in the first week of October. It will let me run the buggy before the colder outside temperature.

I would imagine it will work. The chassis was lengthened and they only seem to be selling one center drive shaft.

I was feeling a little out of date with my tekno V4, until I found out it was longer than the current RC8 and the same as the new one coming out. So I guess I'll just need new towers and arms as backups. Maybe some of the lightweight stuff as well, we'll see.

Default Ok peeps it's here finally

Ok so I just got the text I've been waiting for,,,,the buggy has arrived,
I received the news late so I didn't get a chance to pick it up,that'll be done tomorrow,and yes I'll take some pics as I build it, for those who just want to see it.

I won't get a chance to run it for about a week.I have to wait for the body to be painted.
In the mean time I purchased a mbx6 while I was waiting for the 8.2......by some sort of coincidence they decided to show up on the same day.
So the mugen will be ran first,,,,,it comes with a body wrap.....Thank God!

Tell me about it.... And really didn't mean for it to happen this way.
I read somewhere on neobuggy that they pushed the release date back to late October. I guess they were wrong.

I own the mbx6t amongst a bunch of other stuff,,,and man.....That thing is on rails! So I had to try the buggy.

Default The new build

Oh boy, can't wait for the guys who swear that this is a copy of the kyosho to see this buggy.(trust me)you'll eat them words.


This buggy is sick! A lot different then what I thought it would be.
From the light weight drive train,,,,, to the option of having the reciever pk battery in the front or the rear of the buggy.

Also not to sure, But it looks like the CG is a little lower then the old one.
