Not sure why someone would do that. It cost more $$$ with the same results. I would stick with the stock set up, it works great for me.

We put the Mugen MBX5 knuckles on the Mayhem Truggy because they are much stronger than the stock ones. I can't see a need on the buggy though.

my stock set up works good too, but i think i know why they did that, to get rid of pivot ball front end. because alot of the higher end buggies dont have pivot ball suspension. not knocking the turmoil for no reason at all cuz i love the way mine drives and handles, but maybe thats something to think about.
