cool ! can't wait to see what they improved !

i jump the electric version ( heavily modified ) and always like this chassis and transmission !
i hope they didn't make it weaker with lighter parts...

Yeah, its going to be neat to see. Given how well the MBX7 is, what does Mugen Engineering and the Team drivers think the new platform needs.

just for fun : i sent mugen a mail, almost a year ago, showing them what i do with a mbx7 : they didn't bother to reply. i guess racers are their target, not funky crazy bashers ! adam drake did reply in one comment i made in his video. i love you adam !

The Drake likes to bash that Arrma Outcast! Mugen could improve diff access, maybe lighten it up a bit, that is about it for me...

I know Robert has been testing it for a week or two.

I hope it comes with a battery box, split center mount and a significantly changed servo tray.

A couple years.

Mugen is not AE, haha.

AE cloned the MBX7R, then go out and release .1, .2 etc... like every year

Tim said a few years ago that the split center diff mount didnít give good support, so i put a mbx6 center diff mount in mine.

Yes
