Tambok,

No price is listed at Nitro House for the new buggy. Would that mean it's not really available?

im guessing if you called them they would have them already

i heard mugen shipped out alot already and nitrohouse is really close

i am hoping they did ship already to my lhs who had them on backorder they usually use 3 day shipping so if they get them friday i will have it built before our race this sunday

Damn that is a good looking buggy. I really like how the side plate comes out around the muffler tip to protect it... good idea there.

i cant wait till i get mine

saw 3 yesterday on ebay for buy it now for $595 and almost couldnt help myself

i also like the idea of the stinger protector i hope it works

it looks awesome the only thing i am kinda disappointed about is the center diff carrier looks like plastic with a carbon fiber plate

the kits could get to my lhs today

i was told mugenusa is close to selling out already and that parts are due to arrive at mugenusa early next week

a couple mugen team guys have run them already i was told they said it made them an easy second per lap faster handled really well was really easy to drive and as much of an improvement over mbx4xr as mtx3 was over the mtx2

my local regionals the weekend after this one may have just turned into an entirely different event than normal with a complete domination of mugen cars

I know it's only been a few days but...any feedback on the new buggy from it's owners? I'm really debating whether I should replace my trusty XR with an X5 or K2!?
