1ea. 3mmX35mm(servo)

Hey dude, sorry for missing your question as i dont check in here very often.
Steering and servo diamensions are as tony's. Rear camber is 5mm. Im not sure about the length, as i have already put them in my ride.
Cheers.

If you guys use two gaskets, don't forget to get the longer diff screws!!!!

The MBX5 series used 3x8mm flat head screws in the diffs. The new MBX6 now uses a 3x10mm flat head.

I always used a 3x12mm flat head in my MBX5R and MBX5T with two gaskets. I also sand the cups for about 20 seconds each to get them perfectly flat. I grease the heck out of the out drives and use my S5 o-rings (over-sized).

Best regards,

That chasis looks gorgeous! I ordered mine from modhobby.com, i got it for $498 but he brought the price back up to $550 yesterday. Do you think you guys are going to keep the graphite towers or get the aluminum ones?

They're actually $599, but retailers are selling them lower. Mugen is a much smaller company IMO, so the overhead is not there. I've seen Mugen in Japan. Its two buildings in located off a small road in Chiba, Funabashi, Japan. Very small business compared to the Kyosho giant. Losi is US corporate run business now, so profits are generally key points in price structure.

I personally feel the MBX6 is the best priced 1/8 pro buggy right when going over price and materials used.

Are you complaining? Go buy a K car if you just have to spend more money.

I think I will stick with the carbon toweres, I race with 808's and RC8's
and they haven't seemed to have any trouble with them, and I know the Mugen will have at least the quality of those guys if not better.

Yea I was thinkin pretty much the same thing. Is the car really going to be as light as everyone is saying it is. I think its crazy how scott hughes car was underweight at the worlds. i just hope it doesn't compromise durability because my mbx5r was literally a tank. It had two season on it and not a single part broken!
