As for the Tbone bumper it should work the chassis is about the same in the front but the rear of the EMB-1 chassis has kick up in it unlike the mini 8 chassis

Thanks for the info. Luckily, I just ordered the front bumper.

@slicendice, have you changed or broken anything yet with the EMB buggy? are most the exisitng spare parts for the mini8 also compatible for it?

I have been driving my EMB-1 for about 2 weeks now and the car is very durable I havent had to do one thing yet except clean it and put fresh oil in the shocks and bleed them before a race. The servo saver and stock servo have been working very well also. I am not sure on how the Emb-1 hubs and suspension parts will change over I have not owned a mini 8.

Thanks for the info. I'm now excited to get my own EMB-1H.

I emailed Mr. Sun about the kit version of the buggy being available at Hobbypartz. He said at this time they will not have the kit version but if they get enough requests for it that they may carry it in the future. Just an FYI if anyone was wondering.

I've just made some more detailed pictures..

I also have a Losi that's full of option parts, but i love this EMB car, it is much better even stock!







front cvd axles (kit option)


I've bought these cheap rallyblocks just for driving at the streets.


Motorpinion and spur, is well protected!



good servo (centers great) and adjustable servosaver (just like 1/8 buggy's)






Hope to drive on this track in spring time (it is to wet and to cold now)




indoor racing with some mini-pins on it.






I also like the lipo's LC-racing provided, they just fit perfect! (much better then the mostly used Turnigy packs).

@wesleyroy, great pics! I'm excited to get mine!!! have you tried using Losi upgrade parts to your EMB-1H? I'm getting mine in a few weeks and thinking of purchasing Losi upgrades parts as well, only to replace broken stock parts in the future.

I did not tried to swap parts from my losi yet. I don't think i need to, the EMB is strong. You can order some cvd's as an upgrade. Or a bigger wing for trackracing.

Little more pricey than what I was suspecting. In the description they say the diffs are fluid filled is that true or are they just regular greased diffs.
