I think if you like the mugen,go with it.Iwould not go with a truggy that noone has close by(if someone else in the area runs the same truck=more parts laying around to share)I like my Hitec 7954's there good and cheap,I have some JR 9100hvt's if you want high dollar servo's that look cool.other than that I've never tried savox servo's but have heard good things about them.You know me.i'm not a brand specific kind of guy.I say it all the time,If it has to do with R/C it's junk........Some junk is nice,But nice junk can fail too!!
R/C Outlaws Rebuild date is April 14th and rain-out date is the 21st
Come help out and bring a friend to labor

Call or text me Tommorrow 618-670-6746,I'll be Driving for 12 hours to GA for the psycho nitro blast.I have never driven my RC8Twc & RC8.2 yet.lol first time on dirt will be at the race.

Hey guys.

I finally got my stuff all picked out and am very happy with my choices. Still not sure on tires or pipes but I have and idea of what I want ..

.1 mugen mbx6t mspec.
.2 jr9100 hvt servos from a friend of mine. Big props to him.
.3 CLOCKED - NOVAROSSI BONITO .21-7XLB
.4 ermc side bleed pipe or a jp3 or jp4?? One of those three.
.5 futaba 4pks.

Well that's it ladies and gents in all its awesomeness. Can't wait till i get some money flowing in and start this build. Keep an eye out because I should have just about everything in the next months or so. One last thing for you guys. What engine mounts should i get if the mspec don't come with one..

Well i just called and placed an order for my mbx6t mspec and will have it sometime early next month along with the servos. Can't wait to get back on the track again. Its a love hate thing with me lol. So as of right now I can cross off 1 and 2 off my list..

Long time since I've been on here,

Well my mbx6t mspec still hasn't arrived at the hobby shop after two months. Well I'm tired of waiting on it to arrive to the hobby shop, so I'm going to order me one Tuesday when I get paid. Can't wait till Tuesday to place my order.

Let me ask you guys this. What's the name of those tires with the white lettering?? I can't find them anywhere or can't remember the mane of them lol..

Well ill post pics of that sexy kit when I get it

What motor are you putting in the 8ight now!?

To be honest, I would never wait 2 months to get anything. My LHS gets everything I want in 2 days. That's why I buy from them. I would drop the order with your LHS and buy the mugen from another place. You could have used the mony from the 8ight you just bought and put it towards race fees, fuel, tires, spare parts and a whole bunch of other stuff, but it seems as if you have money to blow...

I'm interested in this build. What exactly do you have in your posession right now? Which kit, servos, motors etc...

The 2.0 is stock rtr. I just bought the bullydog body for it. I plan on sooner or later getting a ninja for it and keep ot stock... The servos are awesome and its just a good kit all around.

The mugen I don't have anything for it yet. Hell I don't even have the truck lol.. I've been looking on here for a futaba 4pks, servos I have no clue about. Something fast and tourqie..

My engine is going to be a clocked novarossi bonito with a ercm side bleed pipe. Its going to run me about 1200 to 1500$$ easy.. but this is what I want and is my dream truggy... I make more than enough money to get this done with one pay check if I wanted to but I'm not that crazy with my money lol.....

I don't think so?? They are 1/8 truggy tires similar to something like aka and proline. There supposably really good race tires.

Any other suggestion?? Really looking for them and am wanting a pair.. thanks all..

I don't know of any as good as AKA or Pro line with white lettering on the sidewall. I think Nick might be right.

Duratrax tires are rebadged Louise tires, which compete well in the European market.
