Default Mugen Mgt7??

Hey guys

I have a nice 1/8 motor and esc combo sitting in the shed as I was meant to put it in my Serpent 977e but end up putting something else in it. I am after some advice on a good quality on road 1/8 scale kit?? I have been looking at the Mugen Mgt7 but would like to here some professional thoughts?? Even a 1/8 nitro on road that I can convert. Please even make some suggestions

Please not I'm not looking for a high speed car, just for hobby use

Cheers

I believe the MGT7e has been discontinued. There were rumors that a new car was coming in November (or at least announced) but so far radio silence.

Check out the Serpent Cobra, IGT, or Xray GTXE.

If you are feeling like a project, you can pick up a cheap Losi 8ight and convert it to a L-8ight as well.

ebay or the like as the L-8ight was discontinued some time ago (2.0 i believe). There are a couple companies out there that are still making parts out of CF.

It's a pretty basic swap.

Front/rear shock towers.
Rear Body mount
Front Bumper/body mount
1 additional set of front shocks for the rear (the stock rears are too long)
go to RC4LESS.COM and pick up a set of their short springs (get the firm set)
-Setup - take all the droop out of the car. I mean put the wheels on the ground and crank on the droop screws until they touch the chassis.
