Go to mugenseiki.com there you can find pictures of all cars made by Mugen and you'll see that The one you linked to is not one of them.

I've owned several Mugens. The differences that jump out are the suspension arm shapes, the radio box is very different, etc. It's a different car but I don't know who made it.

It looks like a cheap Chinese knockoff clone of a Mugen MBX5

Has anybody done a corr truck conversion withe the mbx6 yet?

my plan is to use the pro-line blitz chevrolet body since its wider and fits the buggy's better and use the sc8 bumpers.

thanks
I think it feels great when you have high speed turns on low-grip tracks - you can floor it (once at speed) and drive the apex all the way, it removes any push as the front wheels "drive" the car". It doesn't calm the car down, but it makes it easier to drive it closer to the apex in fast turns.

a lot of people say it calms the car down when exiting the turns and you can powerslide through them - I come from onroad and I don't like it. I thought it was just feeling "slow" then.

then again Savoya and a bunch of top-notch drivers never take it off the car as they absolutely love it. That's why it's polarizing to me - you love it or loathe it. Remember what this does is VERY anti-mechanical (make the rear and front wheels turn different speeds).

There's tons of way to have an agressive rear: stiffer springs, stronger swaybars, camber, anti-squat...

Officially, stock - they're just milled externally to shave as many grams as possible, as with the rest of the car.

In reality, who knows what's in there

Not saying milling to make it light is bad, but my opinion is over kill for a club race, Work on your driving skills if anything. If anything i want a milled center diff like kyosho.
