VRP MBX8 torsional carbon fibre arm inserts

VRP have just released torsional carbon fibre arm inserts for the Mugen MBX8 buggy. These are much different than typical carbon arm inserts as rather than flexing torsionally, they flex length wise, from hinge pin to hinge pin. This will help the suspension arm flex correctly, keep them from twisting under load when accelerating/decelerating, yet allow them to flex with the squat of the chassis. Overall, they will give more traction and a consistent feel compared to regular carbon or plastic inserts, thanks to using directionally laid carbon fibre plates. The parts are machined in house at VRP in Houston, Texas and are available in 0.8mm, 1.0mm, and 1.2mm thicknesses.

VRP MBX8 carbon fibre fuel tank guard

Coming from Vision Racing Products and made for Mugen’s new MBX8 buggy is a carbon fibre fuel tank guard with added heat shield. The carbon guard will keep the pipe from ever burning into the buggy’s fuel tank, and the heat shield will keep the tank from absorbing excess heat from the exhaust pipe. The guard easily bolts right onto the lower two screw holes on the side of the tank and the heat shield is precision cut 0.5mm smaller so it is easy to seal the edges with thin c/a, giving a a nitro proof set-up that will last.
