Rob’s Mugen MBX6 – Introduction


I started racing in late 2008 after a friend introduced me back into the wonderful world of RC, this is my latest ride.

This is my second MBX6 after I was lucky enough to get one of the original kits, the current car has the lightened outdrives and axles and aluminium upper arm holder. The build is painless as any MBX6 owner will tell you. The car itself is easy to drive with the kit setup and it’s strong…very strong – I crash a fair bit but the car takes it!


I have had some good results with this car recently at SRS Kent on the 27th June 2010 where I qualified 4th in the B. Stay tuned for monthly updates on how I am bonding with my new wagon…
