I won't label you, so I'll just say your a big 1/10 MM buggy guy. Maybe you can help X-Factory make a car vs. a chassis plate to mount B5 parts on?


I know I'm gonna get hammered for that but oh well

Anyway, back to the Mug...AE8.3e

Im a mugen guy, i really see nothing wrong with using designs from other cars.. Trying to make a car work with new innovations is hard..if they took all the good traits from all the cars on the market is smart...josh Alton tried to make something different and it didnt work for them..its hard to be original and make it work... They put all the best in one kit I guess? Remember that company called ofna lol

Jeez you didn't have to be an ass about it, it seems it wouldn't be that hard though, tekno does it and the eb48 seems to be working fine, I just think slim looks cooler than wide

You sound like one of those guys that hates slicks and cab forward bodies. What did x factory do to you? Your at a 10 I need you at an 8, you don't have to be an engineer to turn a servo around. Psst... I heard decaf is just as good as normal coffee

This buggy is on my radar for next season i don't care if its a Mugen copy if its cheaper than the Mugen and the parts are cheaper im for it . I have owned and driven a Mugen Eco 6 before for a season.

Now Associated please make a RC8T E-Truggy with the same layout as this new buggy ! I been running the RC8TCE with the Nitro conversion not a bad truggy but its time for a new one its time for sure .

Have you tried the M2C chassis for the RC8T? It makes it a whole new truggy!!

Got ya. I put it on order so we get one so whether I take it or not it will sell quickly. I might stop up at LCRC this weekend.

Coming from 1/10th scales and AE 5 series, how do you adjust the front suspensions upper camber link/arm similar to raising and lowering ball stud mounts on the T5's and B5's?

The upper arm mounts have pills that can be changed to raise and lower the inner mounting point.
