Good! I'll be trying Hughes setup then since an XB8 was turning underneath everybody here last weekend, including me. That, naturally, is not going to be acceptable.

Hi guys, i have seen the report in neobuggy and buggy-sport regarding the new shock towers and shocks absorbers.
Just wondering, are all this made by Mugen Japan or MID Mugen?
And.. where can i get them?

THANKS!!!

That stuff is still in the prototype stage. I think that the spring retainers will be molded plastic instead of machined aluminum. The springs are RVM progressive's, they are available now at places like Amainhobbies.com.

Default JLB shocks information

bmcallister - you can go to the Sgrid website at:

http://www.rc-racing.com/cgi-bin/bt

You have to register to go on the conferences. Go to #16 Mugen Seika Racing MBX-5/response #1803 of 2307.
Skip Banta has a good explanation. There may even be a picture of his shocks somewhere there on #16, but he just hardcoats the stock MBX5 shock bodies that come in the kit, that's my understanding.

The Sgrid has a lot of information on just about everything in the R/C industry. Some of the factory racers (Mark Pavidas, Chad Bradley, etc.) post good stuff on the grid.

KMW racing also makes shock bodies that have improved shaft bushings and pistons for the MBX5.

Yep. KMW also has Bronze bushings for Kyosho and Jammin shocks (Big Bore as well). Way better quality than the plastic ones.

KMW shocks and bushings can be found here:

I think that actually means standard kit length. About a year ago Mugen released short versions of their springs to give a steeper spring rate for use on smoother tracks (Europe?).
