Default Mugen MBX7T - Available in nitro and electric!

We all knew Mugen would update their truggy to match the MBX7 buggy but did anyone expect more than a nitro version? Another big step for the e-truggy class.

Discuss among yourselves.

Definitely wasn't expecting that. Now I have to decide between an ET48 and this.

Why sell the MBX6's for the 7's? Just because the're a newer version? What makes this one better?

I have a MBX6 with the Tekno conversion and I have no plans to swap it out unless there is something revolutionary about the 7t.

the difference in one word between the 6 and the 7: the steering

x6 is still excellent most of local drivers didn't make the switch for the 7 but this is definitely a badass looking truggy

Steering in the x6 is easy to fix.

There is 650 pages or so in that thread, can you post a link to the fix? I've not had an issue with my steering, maybe the Tekno kit fixed it? I never drove it as a gas truck so I don't know how the stock steering was.

It's on the last page or 2 of the thread. Just look for my post and it has a link to the modification. Just trying to keep this thread to mbx7t conversation.

Like I said over in the nitro section, I have a brand new never run ready to go 6T Eco that may be on the chopping block. Why sell the 6T for the 7T you ask? Why not I say
Matching set, lol. x7/x7T

that's why I bought a mbx6 eco for this season rather than a mbx7, there was a 350$ difference in my case (both new)

now back to the beast
