Looks good. Now get rid of those upper a arms and put some camber links on instead. It will turn like you won't believe.

the upper arms have a built in adjustment that's one reason I am doing thisat my track I don't seem toget good turn in

anyways took that advice and used some extra rear camber links for the front upper arms it looks like it came that way from the factory on a plus side also i have extra knuckles and c hubs just no extra a arms so i hope it holds together for the race on the 27th

and i am planing a trip down to revelations and thunder ally later this summer! should be fun!

If Mugens came with C-hub standard I would have chosen that over my XRAY..After the Hyper 7 PBS I will never run Pivot balls again..Loving My 808 though

we will see how it handles it looks good dont it!

lol hopefully mugen will come out with there own c hub conversion

after driving a losi i wanted one but i love the name of mugen so i kept it and tore apart some old buggies i had and made it work

i did have to dremel the arms a bit nothing major and the front cvds fit like a glove.

there is a little bit of bump steer how can i get rid of some of that

that does look cool. If pillow balls where so much better, everyone would have them right? How many buggys have pillowballs?

You would think that pb have a greater range of motion. I have only had mugen so i don't know any better. My car has a shit ton of steering
