Default Mugen mbx5r

Does anyone know I'd the mbx6 parts will work with the mbx5 buggy. Does the 6 body fit on the 5?

The Mugen MBX5 and MBX5R are largely compatible with each other.

The Mugen MBX6 and MBX6R are largely compatible with each other.

However, you will find that there are few parts on the MBX6 that you can use with the MBX5R. The clutch is the same -- and a few other assorted parts. Everythng else is new, and can't be bolted onto the 5R unless you get a new chassis.

Believe the 6 body is longer than the 5R, and the front is not compatible with the old body mount -- but like anything, it coupld probably be jimmied in a pinch.

Hi Guys...
MBX5R Bodies are pretty scarse now that we are up to the MBX7 now..



Looking for a body to fit...

Any model... any brand will do as long as you are 100% sure it will fit.

Unless you know of where I can still get a MBX5 body from, that will be even better still. Cheers
