I kinda like the car lets just hope the price doesn't kill it, but if it wins races the price won't matter look at the 777s

from the video it looked like the buggy jumps well. There are a few things I'm skeptical of like the shock towers and wing mount, they look like they will break easily but I guess time will tell. Also how much shock travel does this have? It doesn't look like it has as much as other buggy's but I guess its hard to tell from the pictures. Has anyone raced theirs yet? what did you think of it?

The M1-B has vitually got a bullet proof shock setup.
4mm shafts and the most shock travel of any 1/8 buggy.
I am itching to build my kit ,jsut dont have the time.
This buggy is going to make a impact on the racing scene with out a doubt.
There is no buggy available with the spec and quality of the TeamMagic M1-B ,and thats a fact.

Managed to get some track time with mine today.

Had some small issues... if you end up buying one, check the pre-assembled UJ's... I had two come loose and the pins ripped through the suspension arms and uprights and then disappeared. Managed to install some spare UJ's in the meantime but just a word of warning.

On our track I found the car has way too much steering which caused the rear end to come around under power. I've played around with suspension settings and am still testing but I think a change in rear toe in is going to be the only option.

The car defintely has potential. Corners, when I could get the rear end to stay straight, really fast and has excellent drive from corner to corner. Also, you can feel the change to the car when you modify its setup only slightly.

Apart from the UJ's nothing has broken on our extremely rough track so it definately strong.

Still testing.

I hope they come out with a set of aluminum shock towers and a diff. body, otherwise the buggy looks cool. I wonder if they will ever come out with a truggy.

That would be nice. The price is still to high for me but hopefully it will lower once it's released.
