Mugen Seiki MBX6R buggy

Mugen Seiki MBX6R buggy

Mugen Seiki have announced the MBX6R based off the ultra successful MBX6 buggy. The 6R contains many high performance parts that the Mugen Seiki design team have created. The buggy comes equipped with a new 5mm longer had anodized chassis and a forward mounted receiver & battery tray, something which we have seen previously. The combination of both new items will improve handling in all bumps and jumps and the increase in stability means you can drive the MBX6R harder and faster. To further improve the handling a new set of front and rear damper springs and chassis braces are included. An aluminium rear toe in block with various toe in and anti squat adjustments and an aluminium front upper suspension arm holder with adjustable roll centre positions will keep the car dialed into all race conditions. The give the new buggy the finishing touch it comes supplied with the newly designed Force cab forward body from Bitty Design in Italy.
