Amain shows stock will be available 5/24 to begin shipping pre-orders. But who knows, that date was already pushed back once.

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.

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.
