Hoping to run mine this weekend. Ended up building the diffs 7/5/3 to start out with, was hoping some others might chime in.

I'm surprised this thread is so quiet all things considered.

Just ordered one. Should be up and running in a week. First Mugen. My 8IGHT and EB48.4 should be up for sale soon if all the hype Iíve been hearing at the local track is true.

slackinoff 06-15-2018 06:18 AM

My kit should arrive tomorrow. With the kit, I also ordered the Xerun XR8 plus and 1900kv g2 motor. This will be my first ebuggy, I started with the losi 8ight nitro buggy 6 months ago. This will also be my first big race kit. Oh and I also ordered the protek 170sbl servo. I kind of went all out....I cant wait to build this kit tomorrow.
