Now that the new nitro buggy is out, does anybody know when the Electric version should come out?

Anyone running a shorty pack? Which body are you running? I think the proline one won't work but has anyone tried other ones? Drake runs J concept I think. I'd like to try a bitty design vision but not sure if it will clear.

For those of you that changed the rear blocks and arms over to the 8R stuff on the MBX8Eco’s. How was your ride height on the rear? With my spring collars all the way up, the lowest I can get the rear is 29mm.

Found out, you need to trim the shock ends 3mm if running the upper hole on the rear hub.

Well. They presented the 8R eco.

Same as the nitro but could also run shorty packs. I also see a new cover for the center diff. More ventilated or just to be able to get stones out that get into there.

Is there sufficient clearance between battery and body? More than with stock body?

good call. Still hard to tell, funky shape for a fan mount.

Not sure what is is. Maybe something to attach the sensor cable to so it doesn't flex too much and keep it from breaking?
