Bowties are the shizzz. If you dont want them I will buy them they have been discontinued for a long time but are a killer tire on the right track.

Don't want to sell them - I actually wanted more of them - can't find them though.

Default Question

I was going through the OFNA website and was looking at their product matrix

Can anyone enligten me on what is the MBX suspension. Im familiar with the C Type and the PBS but what is the MBX suspension or the Kingpin one for that matter...

These two options are given in the 9.5 variations and not found in the Hyper 7 series...

And by the way what is the diffrence between the Hyper 7 and 9.5 series besides the engine...

Between the force .26 and the Hyper .21 8P, which is better in terms of durability and tunability... Speed is not much of a concern yet....

Regards

ofna is a USA distributor for 2 brands hong nor and hoboa

mbx suspension im not sure 100% but the mbx was their low level car so im guessing its not a plus

the only front steering systems you want to consider are the PBS (pillow ball suspension) and the C-Hub suspension. i thought that the MBX was a PBS setup, but i would investigate further before buying one. if i were shopping for a ofna buggy, i would at the very least pick up a hyper 7 PBS, then the hyper 7 PCR since it includes both types of suspension for you to choose between, and finally the hyper 7 pro gets my top vote since it has the most hop-ups in the box and its the only one thats a kit.

Hey guys, what engines are you currently running in your buggies? I've got an original WS7 that's got a bit of runtime on it, and is going to be kicked down to backup pretty soon, once I figure out what my next engine will be. I'm trying to decide between a Top P5, Top 421B, RB WS7II, or a HotMod Top P5. I love my WS7, but I want something with a little more bottom end torque, and a little smoother throughout the powerband. I've driven quite a few engines in quite a few buggies before (my WS7, OS V01b's, a HotMod Top 421B, a HotMod P5, etc), but never most of the engines I'm now looking at. If it matters at all, I've got a Mugen MBX5, but I plan on switching to either the Fioroni sliding clutch setup, or a Kyosho clutch setup with the Kyosho fiber shoes (I may try out Mugen's black composite shoes first, though, but they sucked in my MBX4-XR). My main reason for switching clutch setups is because, even though I love the performance of the aluminum shoes, I hate the constant maintenance required for them. I'd appreciate any advice you could give me. Thanks!

i'm running 421B at the moment in my MBX5 & it rocks
i have got a P5 on order though as i want to try a bottom end engine!
i've just got a Picco P7-R & they're supposed to be a good bottom end smooth engine, maybe find out a little more about that?

Does it matter if you don't use those 3 shims underneath the clutch shoes? In the Kanai manual it says to use them, but I must have lost them somewhere.

Default You can run without the shims

Performance wise you will not notice a difference but the shoes may not seat in the clutch bell properly. A little bit may not be all the way inside.

Your clutch shoes may get hung up on the flywheel - the spacers help get the clutch shoes away from the flywheel so they engage freely.
