A little off topic, but is the Mb7r eco still a competitive car?

Can someone tell me if they felt a difference between the stock body and the JC body.

The JC body provides much more downforce and is thicker lexan. I like it alot. That and the Bitty Design body are money. Bitty Design comes pre cut, you paint it then go race no cutting.

Applies the downforce where? More traction or steering?

Anyone? Curious on the vehicle and what you found was a base setup to start with for a lower traction rough track?

I'm about to start racing an MBX8R eco , I've no prior experiance pro racing, but the car is spot on imo. I started out with the standard setup and it has been usable enough. I've just finished a rebuild with small changes to tune it for the local track. The quality of this kit is outstanding imo. I've seen zero wear on any of the gears. The only apparent wear is on the drive shaft pins. (Around 10 hours hard use)

I will update my experiences as I go. I have opted to be slightly on the heavy side as I race it in the evening with friends. I'm not chasing trophies, just fun.. but i hope my technical experiance with the car will be useful, weight and car balance should be a big priority if you want to win 🏆s

It's incredible how much abuse it has taken with only 1 break from a very badly judged jump 😳

New user, so I can't post pictures yet. I can later if people are interested. Will follow this thread and offer what information I can.

Hi all. Looking at getting this kit as my first 1/8th Scale & I've got a question. Currently I run 10th scale and have the most common tools for that. Are there any special 8th scale specific tools I should be looking at? For example, my largest drivers are a 2.0mm and a 2.5mm ball end. Do I need a 2.5mm or larger driver for the kit? TIA for any and all advice.

Hello Quartermouse2,

I would suggest You to get 2.5mm Driver for this 1/8 Scale Build. I would also suggest that to always use regular 2.5mm Driver on screws whenever is possible. Only use Ball Driver for angle approach.

Cheers..
