OK, I understand, I will watch my language

So the K springs fit the MBX6 without problems, both front and rear? That is nice to know, but those springs are even more expensive than Mugen ones, so I think I will get some original ones instead. I am looking for some spring options, anyone knows which (from other cars) fit?

@RushDL

Yeah, diff blew out again this weekend, all fluid came back out after running for about 3 minutes. Had to borrow one from someone else to run the main.

Going to order a whole new assembly.

I think bottom end was rich on the engine. Had to get my nitro had back on - it has been a long time since I did nitro, just getting back into it since I got the '6.

Hello, quite strange and never have this issue with my MBX6R. As recommended you should use 2mm longer screews for the Diff (I always do).

For the past 3 years i have tried many buggy brands and totally agree with RushDL@ out of the box this car is ready for racing . The only option i am using is regarding the shock springs and use sometimes the black one according some tracks.

Last 2 weeks , 2 races with the buggy with pretty much no maintenance in between and can reach and race 1 hour amain without any issue with the buggy. manage for a podium (3rd) and 9th (Radio box switch issue, i know i should not use such bloody switch lol).

just finish to service the buggy and even after 4 days of racing + 1 full day off practice jjust refill a bit bit the diff and change the schock oil thats all and the buggy is ready for another race;

If you are looking for a decent buggy with an affordable budget this is a winner for sure.

my 2 cents

Cheers

My MBX6R US edition in action during last race Amain (Finish 9th)





My good friend MBX6R during the Same race



The track :




It is a real pleasure to drive it.

My setup :

5/5/3 for the diffs
46T / 13T for gears
Shocks : 450/400 with 5 holes 1.35 black springs (10.7, 9.5)
Aka Impact
Alpha Lutz + 2081 pipe

Of course i am sure this kind of setup suit me mostly but the buggy was really easy to drive .

Cheers

Do the MBX7 front hubs make that much of a difference on the 6?

hi,
I have mbx6r, I would like to buy engine, I'm thinking about the novarossi engines, but I don't know which one, I have about 150 for the engine.
And i don't have clutch, and really don't know which is good for the mugen.
thank you for any helping.

+1 Agreed with Ccolemugen, the novarossi P5XL is quit good.

According the clutch System the stock one is good and you can use the stock clutch bell and flywheel. If you really want a good one the JVD, REDS or Werkz are really good and worth the money (But you need to use a dedicated clutch like the OFNA, Hong Nor or Sworkz clutch bell).

I just picked up a LUTZ clutch setup but haven't had a change to put in yet. Been running a LOSI w/Ofna clutch bell without issues, just wanted to try something different.

QQ:

Anyone found a different fuel tank that works with the 6R without to much griding/drilling?

Will the X7 towers work on the 6R?

Thanks,
Dennis

Regarding the Fuel tank , the only one almost fit is the MBX7 one. without drilling it almost fit but it is better to drill 2 additional holes.

Some pics of my MBX6R with the MBX7 fuel tanks
