Robert Batlle traded the Spanish weather to for the more ‘invigorating’ weather of northern italy to attend at The Italian Job Race.
For the first official race event with his new brands Robert has published on Facebook an interesting photo since you can see an unusual body. In fact Robert test on his Mugen MBX7R a Bittydesign Force body made initially for the Team Associated RC8B3. The characteristics of the two buggys being very close, fitting does not seem to be a problem.
We have contacted Bittydesign’s Stefano Rabitti which confirmed that if Robert was happy with the performance, it could be the basis for the design of a new body Force for MBX7R.

The foundation for the design of the “finger” on the front of the pod increases mid-corner steering while a complete wicker section was added to the rear of the vehicle. The initial impression was the silky smooth and balanced aero characteristics which helped culminate into a ROAR National Championship.
