Thank you! That's 19g lighter than the original spur. Cheap weightsaving ^^

Why all the 1/8 scale brushless are sell pre-assembled?

Do you know why?

I love to have the kit box to build the car. I don't like pre-assembled car. Maybe it's my limit but I consider kit box only.

Was thinking about getting a Losi 8ight-E 2.0 but saw that Mugen is releasing this buggy next month. What are the pros and cons of the Mugen v the Losi? Numerous guys in the area running the Losi, as well as some Mugen electric conversions. Thanks!

Mugen rocks - Losi doesn't....LOL

Both solid buggies from what i've seen. I love my mbx6 conversion because of the steering and handling. It handles with precision. Only downfall I have is a-arms breaking. They don't break for no reason though, always driver error. They just don't seem as forgiving as other brands.

Ok, I weighed my buggy, but was not able to do it before everything was mounted. So, with Gen Ace 5000maH 40c, Tekin 1900, HK 150A esc, AKA Enduros, KO 407s rc'vr, and Savox 1256TG it is 3504g (7.72lbs).

Yes, painted body, throw it on the ground and drive it.

Drove it today, and on my blownout, rough, dusty track the stock setup worked well.

Strange, I have been driving Mugen for quite a while now without this problem.
Only once did I break a front arm, as I hit the edge of a wall in high speed. The Mugen's take my driving without problems, and that says a lot

If you're refering to alum. rear hub carriers, it doesn't look like it from igyrigged's pics a page back in the thread.
