Mugen uncover MBX8 body shell

Following the introduction of their new MBX8 1/8th nitro off-road buggy and issuing images “sans body shell”, Mugen finally lifted the curtain of the last unknown bit – the said body. By looking at the images it appears the shell is of a slightly more cab forward design that the MBX7 body, yet it is far away from some of the extreme body designs available from several manufacturers. In addition the new shell features sculptured side pods with raised “wing” sections in the side window area while four lines of humps, further to the back, will be adding rear downforce – a technique that is known from the front fenders of pan car body shells. The design is rounded out by a flat rear section that will allow for good heat escape from the engine’s cooling head.
