This is the 1/8 scale Mugen MBX7 Nitro Buggy. The goal of Mugen’s design team was to lower the center of gravity, increase traction, increase corner speed, and to lighten up the whole drive train. The end result is the all new Mugen MBX7 Nitro Buggy.
The rear suspension of the MBX7 was engineered and designed to give you more traction and a smoother action through jumps, bumps, and whatever else this buggy attacks with fully adjustable anti-squat and toe in bushings and shorter rear suspension arms. Its new shock springs and front shocks control the suspension on the front of the buggy while newly designed shock angles keep the rear suspension hooked up to the surface.
The drive train has been lightened up with the spur gear and front/rear conical gears being milled out to reduce its rotating weight. Conical and straight cut bevel gears make the overall drive much smoother with less drag. A specialized brake disc, brake cam, 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.
