UK kits have to go through M.I.D Germany first before getting to us so a lot depends on their turn around time

Ya thats what I thought, Savoya ran an MBX6 w/ aluminum towers, witch was an option for the team driver kits. They came with both carbon and aluminum. I know hughes tried both in practice before the worlds. I think everyones getting Vray and Savoya confused. I heard Vray ran a 5X with 6X parts on it.

Just curious as to how this car handles compared to the xray 808, or losi 8ight. I am currently debating on what car to get as I am moving up from 2wd electric offroad. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am just trying to consider all of my options.

It appears the kits should be out by Friday, at least whats coming from my store in Japan. They have Sept 27 as the selling date, shipping on the 26. I expect him to sell out quickly as from what he's stating.

I will set up a link to my photobucket with all the pics of the build as soon as I get it. Probably way too many pics to post on here.

The only arm that broke I heard of at the worlds was on Scott Hughes buggy
Right after the first turn from the start grid there was a big tripple. After the start of his main he and a bunch of cars jumped the tripple. Scott's car got wadded up in the air and landed all sideways on one wheel and broke a rear arm. He had terrible luck all weekend

Would you consider that a weak arm or just bad luck, the reason I'm asking is because I currently run an 808 but I used to run Mugen and I really like Mugen except for the weak arms it had on the MBX-5 so I'm considering going back to Mugen.



What do you all think about the shorter wheelbase???
