Anyone have just a spare chassis laying around and possibly center front and rear driveshafts

Trying to find a new body for my mbx6r. Does the jconcepts mbx7/8 body fit in the mbx6r?

Thankyou

Yes, at club level the car really itself is not going to hold you back. untill you start racing with the pros earning $$$ the latest isnt needed at all and do not let anyone else tell you otherwise
But sure the newer cars are stronger and sometimes be easier to work on.. unless you buy an eight X, one of the hardest cars to work on, diff access is worse than the traditional.

A local fast guy here is still using an original d8(he bought all the local ones and all the parts he could to last forever) and blows everyone away, doesnt have a big budget, using like a futaba 4pk, never uses new tyres etc hell he still uses some old orion discovery engines.

Engines havnt really improved much in the last sort of 8 years, and the popularity opinion on the old vz spec'd engines is strong.

tyes is the biggest change and its the main thing.

wow!!! this is really really good to hear i am starting to feel down that my buggy might not be competitive enough even with new tires, oils, bearings and engine. Now it seems that all i have to improve is my driving, and that is what im hoping

New to the site and my First nitro buggy.
Building an older MBX6. What throttle linkage kits fit this nitro buggy?
Any upgrades worth doing, or should I wait to get a newer kit after I get used to what I have?
