GVP, the French distributor of Mugen Seiki sent an email to stores stating that the Mugen MBX7R will continue to be marketed in 2017 and will not be replaced by the MBX8. Optional parts such as the new differential and maybe a new chassis will boost the performance of the vice-world champion buggy.

The good news for fans and potential customers is that the R & D department of the famous Japanese brand is working on a new buggy that will clearly not be marketed in 2017 but in 2018.

proto-asso-1-10-1

When Team Associated began to disclose that they were working on what was to become the B6, they published photos of transparent prototype parts made with a 3D-printing process. If we rely on this fact we can be said that the photos published on the Team Associated’s Facebook page show the first photos of the prototype parts of their forthcoming 4wd buggy. The transparency of the parts greatly complicates the observation of the details and we will have to wait a little longer to find out more. Watch this space, more information are coming!
