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

I'm not sure, we have all seen ours and others buggys doing some wild flips and tumbles on the track, and while it is happening your thinking "thatís broke" then when it's over the buggy is fine. On the other hand, there also the instances where a relatively easy "looking" crash breaks a part and youíre shocked.
As for the Mugen toughness, I have been racing an MBX5R hard and just about every weekend for the last year on many different tracks. I have broken one front arm, and it was my fault (I hit pit lane wide open going down the front stretch!!). I have total confidence in Mugen for their durability and can't wait to get X6 on the track.

Anybody notice that the uprights have oil filling holes with a set screw. I can't see injecting oil into the uprights. I guess if you ran with the seals plucked out of the inner facing races maybe.

LOL, Thats what UPS is for! CNN is too busy talking about the economy, while we are buying $600 R/C cars and $500 new motors for them.

Are these 5mm diameter?

The instructions state its possible to inject oil in the holes on pages 7 & 11. I think it seems odd. I wouldn't think of lubing them from there IMO. Maybe for a quick shot of oil with no time to tear it down I assume.

I see what you mean ez i have also just read the manual online and yeah it does state that strange really your still better to oil the bearings outer race than dropping oil through that hole, im sure a more detailed translation will appear soon
