The new MBX6 has a 44T conical (ring) gear and 13T pinion gear in the diffs. Stock spur gear is 46T and clutch bell is 13T for an overall final drive ratio of 11.98:1 (MBX5R had 40/12 R&P with 13/46 CB&S for a final drive ratio of 11.79:1).

Stock MBX6 turnbuckles are steel, rear hubs are plastic and shock towers are carbon fiber. Doesn't look like a whole lot of option parts are needed for the MBX6 to fully bling it out (aka MBX6R). I personally like the rear hubs in plastic. Titanium turnbuckles will save some weight. Aluminum shock towers will not be needed unless the carbon fiber ones prove to be weak.

Weight will not be an issue. They are already at 7.2 lbs without any lightening.

E0117 - Titanium Rear Camber Link
E0142 - Aluminum Pillow Balls (4 pcs)

E0171 - Rear Sway Bar (3.0mm)
E0172 - Rear Sway Bar (3.2mm)
E0173 - Aluminum Rear Upright Set
E0173/L - Aluminum Rear Upright Set (Left)

Any idea if the titan turnbuckles on the 5r will fit the 6?

The servo turnbuckle and the rear camber link turnbuckles are the same part number. The steering turnbuckles are a different part number. I'll have to measure the 5R ones to see how long they are. The new X6 ones are 44mm so the 5R ones "might" work if they are really close.

The 5R was basically a full option kit. The 6 is going to be a standard kit with some nice parts included and you buy the options you want or think you have to have, or at least for now that's how it will be.

The old bring out the basic buggy, sell the option parts then bring out the fully optioned version, thats one way to get either two kits out of your customers or sell a lot of optioned parts.

Hmmm, me thinks I have seen this type of marketing before!!!

Oh please... This is no basic buggy, in all likelihood there will be no "R" version. There is too little to "upgrade" on this. Come to think of it, not much of the stuff that came with the 5r did anything to improve the performance over the standard kit, it just made it heavier. Of course, every CNC alloy junkie out there bought it anyway.

This car is going to be a big disappointment, somebody buy my EC so I can prove it.

Yes but why supply what is supposed to be a race buggy with steel turnbuckles, mugen must know that 90percent of racers will toss them.

They may have gone with steel to keep some weight up????? With just a couple of option parts and lightweight parts, Scott Hughes said his weighed in under the ROAR limit.
