So with the MBX8R and MBX8R Eco on the way or out in the wild, was wondering if we will see the MBX8TE receive an update.

For the differential gears, it appears the Buggies you some different internals, does anyone feel these will be making an appearance on the truggy?

what is the best way to determine if you have mugen springs and what they are rated at? ( i know there are turns, etc they use, but where is the starting point from top / bottom that you start to count a "turn"?)

what are you guys finding for race conditions is the appropriate size battery to get? I am lookingat either a 4S 6500mah pack or a 4S 7500mah pack.

How has durability been with the nylon spur gear?

Not sure about an updated truggy. I don't think the truggy needs a more stable rear end anyway.

Here is how to count the coils:

Does anyone know if the LFR ET48 2.0 (LFRT4035) body will fit a 8T eco?

Depends. Are you running an esc with boost and turbo, and can program it.

My olde straight timing esc's get a 2250. But boosting a 2000 with a modern esc, would make more sense.

bringing up an oldie here for some info.

WIth the MBX8TR eco, seen pics with a shorty being used, is this a common setup to go with these days for 10 minute mains? If so, are you all also going with a buggy sized motor or still running truggy sized motors with that layout?
