Supposedly there are two types of wheels and tires supplied for USA MBX6 kits. It depends on which distributor you supplier gets the kit from.

Which tires are included in the kit according to distributor? Crime fighters or bow ties?

Ah, it DOES come with wheels and tires..

Well.. i've been wanting a new buggy, or try out truggy..

Has anyone finished their build yet? Was looking at the manual and it looks like a pretty straight forward build if you ask me.

instructions are pretty good with mugen. It get's a little more complicated once you go with the prospec where it comes with 2 manuals (prospec and basic) and then you have to go back an forth between manuals.

just to clarify the difference in price between manufacturers its quite simple really, those who have managed to keep the cost down have done this by using countries with a vast workforce to produce the parts needed for the kits and to assemble ready for shipping, this has its own inherent problems in as much as you cant quickly make changes to the design or material make up of the car due to the locations of the respective persons i.e. designer in Japan and probably manufacture in china or similar and there is also the ? over quality of materials being used, on the plus side it keeps the cost down as the cost to produce the kits is cheaper so the cost to us is lower than other kits which dont use this method (Kyosho) im not supporting kyosho's price strategy as i think its genocide for them also and can hear the price drop approaching also, if Kyosho was to follow the trend they would also be able to produce a kit at much lower prices than they are now but believe their way is better.

now back to the MBX6 gimme gimme gimme i cant wait any longer

All of which get the kits from Mugen USA. I'm pretty sure the kit will come with whatever tires Mugen USA puts in the box. Unless Mugen USA is putting different tires in the kits for the different distributors I would think they would all come with the same tires. I guess we will see when more people get them.

I wanted to make a comment on the diff outdrive o-rings. I had a set of the oversized o-rings from calracing and was going to install them upon building the diffs on my mbx6. I wanted to check the fit so installed one of the calracing rings and they just fell over the shaft. I then tried one of the kit orings and they were a much tighter fit.I ended up using the kit orings. I also slightly sanded my diff cups and used plenty of mobil one on everything and so far everything looks good. This kit is really nice, everybody who is waiting on there kits will be very pleased. Heres a few pics from my build. Check out the new brake hardware, lightened parts. I did get carried away with the grease though.
