Excellent, thanks very much for the info! It's good to hear y'all go easy on the noobs haha

Looking forward to meeting everyone out there, I'll probably try out both places. That S&B Raceway does look awesome too! Intimidating for someone with practically no skills like myself, buy hey we all have to start somewhere right.

Okay sorry for side tracking the thread, I'll shut up so we can get back to talking about the mbx6 again..

Good news, yesterday I changed shock oils to 600 cps front and 550 cps rear and checked front pills. They were in up position. I didn't have the complete set so I put them in down position. Drove today and yay! Does 100 % better, finally I can be aggressive on throttle and grip the inside of any corner. Lands like a cat too. Thanks all!

On average, how many times can change a driveline pins before you need
to replace the driveline?

How long does the press fit last? If you don't do anything stupid.

Happy to report that this past Sunday my car behaved very well and 5 drivers asked if they could do some laps with my car. Everyone had a blast, thing is unreal! Setup is basic setup with these changes:
K light blue rear spring,600cps front and 550cps rear and sworkz gold front and rear ARBs. Still using the underdrive.
Very willing to turn, doesn't get upset unless you flick the rear end violently, is responsive and agile bordering on nervous for those that are not accustomed. Only minor thing I saw was bump steer on compression, lot's of it. Any pointers to get rid of it?

You may add two millimeters of washers under the rack (ackerman) on each side.

+1 2mm washers under the rack works awsome!

Good news, I'm liking the MBX6.
Only two big bummers, the limited manifold space and the radio box covers.
I'll try the Werks manifold for the MBX6 but the radio box covers using screws to hold down is getting annoying. No issues about the handling and wear.

Hi guys,

Happy to read that few people are still using the MBX6R . I am still using the US edition one and still very happy about this buggy.



i am running the buggy stock (and sometimes using the Black Shock springs) and racing a lot with this car . Easy to setup , very tough and i can enjoy a racing week end without any headache.

Bought few months ago a MBX7 but i dont really like it and a bit too tedious to achieve a decent setup.

Cheers

I got a used '6 back in Sept. Have ran it a lot recently, beat the crap out of it. Took it to Psyco this year and ran at our new track (S&B RC Raceway). This thing has been a rock. I've had two issues.
1. Screws in rear diff loosend and lost all fluid. Didn't seem to hurt the gears.
2. Last race runs great until I refuel then will die. Even after reving it and clearing it before putting back on track. In last week's b-main - died right at start, pit man got it started back up but it put me in 10th. Worked my way up to 5th, came in for fuel then died, got it back to pits, started, died back on track. Wasn't too hot and was running like a champ until then.

Check to make sure that there is enough play in the driveline. If there is binding that might be hurting it. Also check your clutch so that it isn't sticking.

I'm still running the 6r but it's more about being poor than wanting another buggy. That being said, the 6R is the better than I am so getting another buggy really wouldn't do me much good anyway.
FWIW, I've also had the flame-out issue after pitting and it's very frustrating. Last race (and my best effort to date) it did it twice, both times I came into re-fuel.

Flaming after a fuel stop is more than likely due to being too rich on the bottom.
