ET48.3 us what I would get. It's super tough and parts are very reasonably priced.

Just a suggestion but pick a thread and stick to it. No need for multiple posts about the same thing

not sure about the mugen tho, my friend drove mbx6t and broke a lot of front arms. just last week he replace 2 of left front arm on one practice day. not sure about the newer mbx7t

not many manufacture have electric truggy. if you have no problem converting the nitro, you will have broader choice

The 1900 or 2100kv is a motor rating. It's a preference thing but generally 1900 is more torque and 2100 is more rpm. I run a tekin 2000kvery in my truggy but have also run the 1900.
