Mugen Seiki have introduced the highly anticipated MBX8 nitro buggy kit. The MBX8 is lightweight, more durable and provides more acceleration and more runtime. The MBX8 features a new chassis design that improves traction and stability in bumpy conditions and on the exit of corners. The steering post are also keyed into the MBX8 chassis for easier maintenance.
The High Traction Differentials are included in the MBX8 to provide increased acceleration, longer runtime, and more consistent handling. The HTD has a new larger volume diff cup to increase consistency during long main events. This makes it easier to time rhythm sections, better in bumpy and low grip conditions, helps to increase traction, and increases fuel mileage. The HTD’s also increase stability, traction and improve handling in bumpy conditions.
The MBX8 comes with new straight cut 13T bevel gear and 44T conical gear. The new straight cut bevel and conical gears increase acceleration, runtime, and efficiency. A free and efficient drivetrain will also increase speeds while cornering.
Also new is the lightweight one-piece wing mount lower the center of gravity. The position of the wing and wing mount is optimized to improve the performance of vehicle. The height of the wing mount is adjustable. This allows you to control the down force on the rear of the vehicle by simply raising or lowering the mount on the shock tower.
The MBX8 comes also with a new lightweight IFMAR legal wing that provide amazing down force and corning. The underside of the wing uses a new design to reduced weight and creates additional down-force.
More information is expected on December 18th.
