Softer plastic, captured hinge pins, maybe a different pillow ball/steering block to allow maximum steering throw at full droop.

try your truggy gears in your buggy (need both gears from each gear box) im not sure if it is a direct fit but a buddy of mine bought a used mbx5R with the truggy gears in it and switched it out before he even ran it. he ended up selling the buggy after he blew up his mamba....

Default Funny You Should Mention...

Funny you mention Ducati in that regard.... they tried that once... ( ONCE ) and it SUCKED, and then they went back.... remember???

What do you guys think of any other changes?

im still debating forwarding my Prospec to the "R" suspension upgrade. I saw some carbon fiber shock mounts for the "R". Should I get those instead of the Prospec aluminum? What else can I do to lighten my Mugen?
