Imbue have introduced new products for the Mugen MBX8 & MBX7 platforms. First up is an aluminum centre dogbone conversion kit. Aimed at freeing up the driveline, increasing ease of maintenance and reducing overall driveline weight by 16g, this conversion fits both MBX7R, MBX8 Nitro and Eco variants and is sold as a complete set. Next up is the much anticipated brass C-block for MBX8. Made from high-quality brass, coated in black oxide and then pocketed and chamfered for a stunning look, this C-block offers 19g of additional weight to a critical area at the rear of the vehicle. Also new is a set of ultra-low friction pivot ball bushings. Made from a structural Teflon (Rulon), these CNC’d bushings reduce friction by 50% over similar Delrin bushing and nearly 65% over stock Nylon bushings, allowing for a much freer, and more consistent steering feel.
