It's all the same motion anyway.....No big difference at all...Maybe a little animation would be better, but it seems to just make the shoes last longer....

There is a difference, But first you must have raced with either first to see and "feel" the difference in overall tractability! An animation for what? Bench Racing?

And please don't refer to your Nitro TC3 as having tested this, it does not even come close to putting down the power or grip, we are talking about 1:8 IC, totally different ball game!

I believe team Mugen will bring great results at the worlds. It's a great Chassis! You will be making a good choice. Hara is back with Hotbodies from what I've seen. And Swauger, let him stay where he is.

New to 1/8 on road. Honestly a little intimidated at how fast the cars go around the track. I am just hoping I can get around the track fast enough that I am not a hazard to the other cars.

Anyways I have a 2013 RX8 that I am finishing up but I am in need of a starter box. My question is the hudy box says for Xray RX* you "NEED" additional part option part HUD104414. Is this true bc I wasn't able to find part available in the US. The online stores that did carry it were advertised around 30 Euro prior to shipping.

Any reason I can't use the Mugen Box?
What do you recommend if you were in my position.

Hope to make it out to Steel City in SoCal soon, if any of you are regulars there and are willing to tutor me I would appreciate the assistance.

The later Hudy boxes come with the RX8 option piece. ( not sure with all the chassis design changes over the years that it's still required ? )

A new Hudy starter was listed on eBay today, look at first picture of the listing and part HUD104414 is shown, upper LH corner in a bag.
