Personally I like the Proline Crowd Pleaser 2.0 for the Mugen, it has a real sporty look.

The "R" arms are virtually identical, they're just relieved on the underside around the droop screws for more droop.

hey guys, i was wondering if any of you might happen to have an extra
lid for the receiver on the receiver box? if you do, how much would you
be willing to sell it for? i lost mine at the track, and i cant afford
to buy a whole receiver box set for 17 dollars just for that one piece.
thanks

Hey guys,
I bought a used MBX5 Prospec that was SUPPOSED to come with a clutch but it did not.

I'd like to know if there is an after market clutch that is good or is the prospec good? Anybody have any suggestions? Anybody have anything they want to sell?

Chris

The Mugen clutch is great 1.0 springs and alloy shoes and ur good to go

RMV and WERKS are good alternatives, but the mugen is stupid easy to set-up and works

Is there any difference between the MBX5T and the Buggy Clutch? Shoes? Clutch bell? I mean a 13 tooth clutch is a 13 tooth clutch right? Is there any difference?
