Mugen Seiki have released the MBX8R buggy, the result of extensive testing and development by some of the best drivers in the world. The team spent a lot of time testing and developing the MBX8R geometry in race conditions throughout 2021, which lead to many major victories, with Ryan Maifield winning The Dirt Nitro Challenge, Silver State Nitro Challenge and ROAR 1/8th Fuel Nationals all in the same year. The MBX8R has many new parts to increase stability, rear traction, improved jumping, and have a wide tuning range. The buggy uses new narrow RF (C) and RR (D) pivot blocks with new pivot inserts for increased tune-ability. Further updates include longer box-shaped suspension arms and arm stiffeners, with the rear arm using an impact resistant material for increased durability. Adjusting the hardness of the lower suspension arms is possible with optional CFRP plates. The rear uprights are also new, the moulded uprights have CFRP plates to adjust rear roll centre. New front shock tower and upper front arm mount use new pivot inserts for increased tune-ability.
Axon have released their new high big bore shock III for the Mugen MTC2. This oil damper has been well received in the TC10, their BD10 conversion, but one of the major changes they have made for the MTC2 is the piston. A 1.2mm/4-hole piston is now standard and a newly designed cylinder and piston rod with ultra-low friction HVF coating are also supplied. These new shocks maximise the performance of your MTC2 by helping to increase traction.
From Pirani RC for the Mugen MRX-6X is this carbon fibre radio plate stiffener. Machined from 2,5mm thick carbon, it mounts directly to the front of the radio plate, bridging the front of the plate at three points to create a much stiffer assembly. This part helps make the car easier to drive in high grip conditions.
T-Works have released two new graphite items for the Mugen MTC2. The new upper arm bracket and upright lever replace the stock aluminium parts for a lightweight and factory look. The other new items is a tool for locking the upper arm flat nuts in place so they can more easily be mounted and tightened.
Power HD has announced the release of their Mugen MTC2 specific servo, the S15-M. With the integrated mount and reverse receiver wire output, this S15-M could perfectly mount to the Mugen MTC2 directly. Having lower gravity centre and neater wiring, S15-M is superior in performance to the PGB-S15, and can be programmed with the Power HD program box to set your favourite parameters according to different tracks.
From PSM for your Mugen MBX8 are new front and rear shock towers featuring an optimised geometry. On the front tower the upper shock holes have been moved +0.5mm up compared to the stock shock tower. In addition the upper shock holes have been spaced different for simplified setup options. The upper shock holes on the rear towers have been moved +0.5mm up and spaced differently, compared to the stock shock tower. In addition the upper link holes have been optimised for simplified setup options.
After the great success of the aluminium bearing housings for the Mugen MTC2, OfficinaRC is pleased to present a new version. Following the requests of racers, they got to work and produced the brand new -0.5mm bearing housing for the MTC2. This version is lower, easily recognisable by the 3 dots. Made from Ergal 7075, it has been black anodised and will guarantee better stability, a smoother ride and consequently higher performance. Designed and manufactured in Italy by manufacturing experts with many years of experience in the sector.
OfficinaRC has added another new item to their Mugen MTC2 collection. This new turnbuckle, produced entirely in titanium and made in Italy is a must have for all the MTC2 drivers. Precision manufactured, they combine light weight and strength and are a direct replacement for the standard M4x16mm Mugen part. Sold a as a pair.
