Default Another MBX5R kit building question.

Before I go all out and start building the whole kit without the servos and motor purchased.

Can I build the kit as is without the electronics and motor without having to take it half apart to install them?

You can build it as is, it's what I did with my 8ight.. just pop the servos in, and engine and you'll be good to go.

...what he said. Build everything esle, just build the radio and servo tray separately. You can bolt it on after you get the servos. Congratulations on getting an MBX5R by the way. You got yourself a good handling, solid buggy.

What you do is leave the engine mounts and the servo tray off. When you get the servos and engine, install them
