Default Help choosing

I have been out of the hobby and now getting back in. What's everone's opionion on the Mugen MBX5r? Parts availability, compatability with mbx 6 parts? Found one for 375 engine has just over a gallon but has good pinch, kyosho shocks, several spare parts and tires, bump box, radio(basic FM), and also has unassembled mbx 5 in its box. just lacking bolt kit.? Good deal? Or wait for losi or Associated 1/8 buggy? Seems most people now are running the 2

Thanks in advance,

As far as the MBX5R goes only 1% (rod ends) of the parts are the same on the MBX6 (the MBX6 is a new design from the ground up) and you might as well go with the MBX6, its way better.

But for that price its a bargain.

Thanks for the response. That makes the decision a no brainer, no mbx5 lol

Take a look on the for sale thread. There is a new mbx mspec for sale, very reasonably priced.
