Depends on what tires/rims they wanted in their orders.

Do we know what the official weight of the kit? and is it printed on the box? How does this compare to the official weight of the Mugen MBX5R?

What is "official" weight? How do you determine the final weight to print on the box when it doesn't include radio gear, motor, etc? You could weigh everything in the box and get a kit weight but you can't compare that to other cars unless you know what they weigh without all the extras.

Still, could someone post the weight of their's race ready, no fuel once done building?

I guess they could throw different tires in for different people it just surprises me that they would do that.

I now see Mugen have an official weight on thier site for the MBX6 as 3,370 this I assume is the approx running weight (as they don't say)? To compare the Xray site says 3,250 approx running weight but they also say the kit as per what's in the box is 1,869 why don't Mugen make it clear or have I missed something?

Hi Bigedmond,

Have you changed anything from what came in the kit to lighten your 808 or is it standard?

Both of these cars are very light! The difference in weight you are talking about is minor, but I do know the AKA foam and tires are heavy in comparison to others. I saw one Mugen MBX6 that was 3200 something, with all the titanium stuff on it. In the Spt A main at JBRL, it was a Mugen MBX6 and a Xray 808 with one lap to go running 1st and 2nd. The 808 driver made a mistake and the Mugen won. Just goes to show that even in the hands of sportsman drivers these two cars are on top.

JMO..

I am undecided on my next car either MBX6 or 808, having raced the MBX5R for the past 2 years and never breaking a single part makes it dificult to look at other makes. Now the Mugen is more in line with others on the weight front I think I will wait to see how it handles and performs in the hands of club racers. I hope it goes well as I then I will realy want one

i broke a upper camber link end on the front right camber rod. But it was a hit that would have broke any buggy. I got lucky only the link broke. Stupid motor needing a hotter plug, then being WAY to lean.

I will say, the 808, the mp9 and mbx6 look great on the track.
