Hey Champ looks like it's a Stock Mugen MBX5

I just Googled Mugen Mbx5 and then went to images and Compered the Photos.

Mate, that doesn't look like a Mugen, more like some very dated copy of the old mbx5.

Well I'm trying to sell it and I'm trying to get familiar with it. So it can sell better, my lhs said its mugen but were unsure of the model, it does have a bunch of carbon fiber parts. If that helps.

Before the mbx5 was the mbx4, 4R and 4RR, they were anodised purple.
sorry bud but that car is a 90s model and worth next to nothing.

So do you think the carbon fiber body parts were just put on? I was reading the mbx4 and 5 weren't interchangeable...well not the best news I traded the guy a running savage and basically...i got screwed then...bummer

Looks to still be in new condition. What did you pay for it?

I have owned a 4rr and every buggy they have made and sure doesn't look like anything I have ever owned. Two thing that caught my eye. First was how high the chassis brace on the rear of buggy goes and the front steering plate doesn't meet up at the front shock tower. Never seen a gap in Mugen like that.
