Definitely.

If you can't get the other stuff yet, one of the best and easiest upgrades imo is the aluminum servo saver and new servo saver spring. It really makes the steering a lot more crisp and precise.

Aside from normal clutch bells, shoes, springs and bearings...

- Front and rear lower arms
- Shock eyelets
- Shock shafts
- Front upper arms
- maybe the pillow balls too - broken one on truggy, but never buggy
- rear suspension camber linkage - stripped this on truggy, but never buggy

other good things to have in bag...
- shim set
- shock dust boots
- front / rear CVAs (they sometimes bend when you break arms, can't remember if front and rear are the same part #)

Default set up help

I'm just looking for a great place to start with the 7TR platform. If there's a new thread please point me that way.

Any way I picked up one used with a new reds 5r. I'm going through the car this week and wanted a sheet to compare where it is now, i run mainly electric so have a steady throttle finger and dont overdrive my 8th scales.
Currently run a eb48.3 and am running bornhorst southern nats wuth a few tweaks.

I like to drive through apexes rather than blast around the middle.
hopefully some of that helps you help me

I would recommend Adam Drake's standard setup it is a great starting point in my opinion.

Quick question. I'm selling my MBX7R Eco for the truggy and I'm figuring out what to keep, springs mainly. I checked the springs F/R for the buggy and according to amain their both capable for the truggy? Doesn't sound right to me but I figure you guys would have a better idea. Thanks

Yep springs are all the same buggy and truggy. 86mm rear and 70mm front. The stock 7r eco springs might be a little too soft for the truggy depending on the track and your setup preference however.

So ditch all the softer springs. Good deal thanks. Maybe it'll sell quicker with a spring package

I wouldnt say "softest" because they come soft to firm rates. I would say most progressive spring mugen has.
