Thatís still a popular setup. No need for anything extra. Esc should handle bec duties. Icharger is popular if you want to go DC. Or there are many good AC/DC chargers out there. Especially if your not charging more than 1 or 2c rate

So, do you guys use the mud guards on all tracks? Any downside do have them on if the track is more astro turf style?

Might try LCRC in Pennsylvania. They carry quite a bit of Mugen items.

The MBX platform has been out a few years now. Any idea if Mugen is going to come out with a new version or whole new car anytime soon? I have 2 MBX8 Eco's and 2 MBX8TE's now. I've been thinking of getting nitro, but would hold off if something was possibly in the works.

hi all feels good to be back on this forum after many years! just have a couple of questions really quick.
1. my car is not as quiet as the rest of the mbx8 eco cars at my track.nobody seems to know whats going
on with it and why its so loud compared to the others.
2. any advise as to stop the car from slapping as much off the jumps?. im currently running 500/f 450/r
with stock pistons.

car has only been to the track 2xs thus far. all is really good except for the 2 minor issues
that I would like to have corrected! thank you guys in advance for any help!

If it's loud check your gear mesh and go through you drivetrain to check for binding. You may have one or more seized up bearings or some other kind of problem.

Ran on a medium/high grip track this weekend. Car was great, loved every minute of it. I am seeing (on hard braking hairpin corners with a dig at exit) my rear inside wheel lifting up of the track. Any recommendations or advices as too why? It was really easy to drive down into those corners hard, even though I had the wheel lift. I can't help but think it was costing me when I needed to dig on the power for exits though. Box setup (location wise) 35/30 f/r, 5/8/3 diffs. Also, I ran 1 set of proline positrons, s3, and after 3, 5 minute qualifiers and a 10 min main I had used about 95% of the tread up on the fronts and about 60% on the rear. Sound normal? I'd like to shim my pivot balls a bit to adjust my camber..are there different thickness washers available for the balls?
