This is the Mugen MBX7 1/8 Scale Off-Road Competition Buggy Kit. The Mugen design team had a goal to increase corner speed, increase traction, lower the center of gravity and to lighten up the whole drive train but while retaining the high quality that separates Mugen from the competitors.
Concentrated on creating a buggy that would carry more natural corner speed, Mugen equipped the MBX7 with redesigned front upper and lower suspension components. The rear suspension was designed to create more traction and smooth action through bumps, jumps and whatever else the buggy attacks with shorter rear suspension arms, fully adjustable anti-squat and toe in bushings. Redesigned front shocks and shock springs control the suspension on the front of the buggy while updated shock angles keep the rear suspension hooked up to the surface.
The drive train was lightened up with the front and rear conical gears and spur gear being milled out to reduce rotating weight. Straight cut bevel and conical gears make the overall drive much smoother with less drag. A specialized brake cam, brake disc and linkage will stop the buggy from the high speeds it will be obtaining. Mugen created a fuel tank with a special fuel intake clunk for maximum fuel pick up from a full tank to an empty tank, nice fuel line holders attached to the tank.
