Randy, both really but I'll be focusing on 1/8 buggy this year. My tentative race schedule: The Dirt Nitro Challenge, Silver State Nitro Challenge, Southern California Saturday Series, RC Pro Series West races and Finals, ROAR NATS. Come find me at the races!

stock body, its a crowd pleazer for an MBX-5 so id assume (we know where that usually gets me) that any MBX-5 body would fit.

Hey guys, Great to finally be here. I'll have my XB8 today. My dealer hasn't carried off-road until now. So he asked me to find out which parts he needs to carry. Would someone be so kind as to give us some suggestions. Thank You

I think the stock crowd pleazer body looks fine, but I'm not very anal about how the body design looks either..

Hi guys. What diff oils (front, center,back) do you think I should use for a very very slippery track? Every time I power out of a turn, I spin out. I've tried all combinations of tires and shock settings. All thoughts and opinions very much appreciated.

Try something like a 3/5/2, 3/3/1. Those are drastic but that seems to be what your asking for. Are you running Gene's setup that is posted at teamxray?

any Socal hobby shops carry parts for this buggy? Is there a good place online to purchase one? I see them on ebay all the time from hong kong but the shipping is like $60. I am ready to ditch the MBX-5 and pick one up
