oh and my manifold problems are resolved......Im going with a Novarossi 21-4 and a 41029 header w/9901 pipe....easy way out.....I have only ran Nova's and a OS Speed in the past, so I will be more comfortable with my decision in the long run and have a correct install at the same time.....I also just realized that the car I got has a Mugen upper alum. arm holder and Mugen alum. rear hubs as well that are coming with it.
Trevor, Travis truggy tower set-up was 300wt mugen oil, stock pistons(white), shock position layed all the way down, orange kyosho springs, just under 1/2 total rebound for shocks and HB bladders.

Handle IT!

the Kyosho rear springs on Amezcua's setup, I really dont want to buy Kyosho high dollar springs, just went through that with my electric 1/10 car indoor, they are good springs but way overpriced....what would be the Mugen equivalent to the light blue Kyosho rate? Im just looking for a good starting point for the new springs with rear truck tower, track is St.Louis Dirtburners.....thanks

the 84mm light blue kyosho springs are a tad softer than any of the silver springs.

on amain mugen springs are $13.50, kyosho are $16.50, for 3 bucks more, i would get kyosho. they are really nice, however i havent had a chance to run the new mugen 8.75 rear. stormerhobbies.com have them for a dollar more if i remember right.

+1 i run the plastics. the aluminum ones are better, but be prepared to have a stash of lower pins if you run them.

nice to meet you at nitro challenge, donrod. thanks for all the useful, real world advice on the mbx6 here at rctech. we really enjoyed watching dylan drive last week.

Hey guys. Getting back into the new year and noticed that they upgraded the six. I have bce+2 chassis, full silver spring set, aluminum hubs, front anti dive and rear toe blocks from m2c, front upper aluminum mount also. What else would I need to bring it up to 6r standards? Battery tray?

Also nothing but problems with the m2c rear hubs. Even had Mitch change them out. Still kept getting dirt in the bulkhead and the suspension pins kept poping out. No problems with the stock plastic ones. Think I will get the mugen aluminum one.

Anything else?

Let's talk starter boxes for a moment. I'm sure everyone has one they hate, but I just need one that will hold a 12v gel cell battery and work well with the 6R.

I have an Associated one now and have used it for the last couple of cars. I'm having a bit of trouble getting it to work with the 6R however.

I was going to get one of the Mugen boxes, but they seem to be a bit hard to get right now.

Ofna (Q-world) dual motor truggy box. works with all brands, even on the DNX 408 (nothing fits that thing), and comes with all the brackets needed to mount a gel cell in there.

+1

Ofna dual motor truggy box is a beast of a starter box that has been working great for me on all my buggies/truggies for even the tightest motors.
