If your after power. Go for a Stage 3 Modded Jammin JPX 21...

PM a user called Supertib and he'll fill you in on that engine.

There are a ton of good engines out there.. I agree, for bonkers power, get a modded Jammin from supertib.. I wish I would've..

There are a lot of good stock engines out there too.. - Ninja JX21, RC C6, OS Speed - all 21's..

OS 28 for something bigger and badder..(though those high-end 21's will be PLENTY powerful..) OS is also coming out with a 25 soon, which has a lot of people drooling(myself included...)

I wouldn't exactly recommend throwing a 28 in that thing. Talk about ballooning...

A good 21 would work for you really well.. I've been out of the game for a while now, so no idea about this 25 coming out soon....

the MBX6T is more geared for a .21, but you could always gear up with a .28.

Just opened mine today. Got another Picco .28 for this build as I have had a really good experience with the one in my SuperMaxx. I'll use the same pipe, Jammin' JP-3. One hiccup in my power choice, it came as a pull start! Online shopping sometimes bites, lol. I am still contemplating using it, as there is not that much material to remove in order for it to work. But the folk at Mugen probably already thought of that. I wont touch Dremel to chassis/motor if I'm not 100% sure on the out come. Maybe ( I hope) someone will chime in. I know a starter box might be in the midst, but hey if I can avoid it. A back plate isn't that much, its toting the starter box around thats the PITA.

My new P3 is a tad different than the one I got for my SM last year. Kinda OS like if you asked me.

My servo choice was a pair of Hitec HS-5965MGs. 130oz of torque at 0.1 of a second with 6v! I think I'll use a 7.4v Dualsky 2000mAh rx lipo on a regulator.

The DX3S and SR3300T from Spectrum will make some of the unknowns known. I like the temp feature the most on this unit. The MPH is a hard nut to crack with a two speed tranny, but hoping on better results on this 6T.

Jury is still out on tire/rim selection. "Bow/Fighters" have the early lead for our local track.

I dont think the 5965's will like 100% lipo....the only hitec's that are rated for direct lipo are the 5955/7955 and the 7940/7950

Other hitec's will take it.....but not for long compared to the higher end versions.

The HV series would be the best without a regulator. But they are pricey. I'm using a Castle Creations programmable regulator. That lipo rx pack works really well regulated to 6v in my Aeroworks Edge 540T.

A couple of changes. Definatly going with a starter box, OFNA's to be exact. I re-ordered the right Picco along with a Jammin JP-4 pipe. I'm swapping out a 5965 for a 7955 tg for steering duty. Re-thinking the regulated lipo. I got my hands on a winning set-up sheet.

Extra's I ordered include Mugen's rear aluminum carriers, some funky tank pulls and skids from DE Racing, Proline Caliber and Holeshot VTR sets and the Shift body. Its kinda Desert Rat-ish. I'll also get a Strobe quick change motor mount, just cuz its a Strobe!![8D]

Why a .28?? A good .21 will make more than enough power. Todays .21 make more power the the .28's and the .28's that do make more power are way to over powered.. that's my take on it at least.. And I would guess the 6T will be half the weight of your SuperMaxx if not less..
Oh and Regulated LiPo is the way to go..

Familiarity is why I got the .28. I've had zero issues with the last one. The SM is just shy of 11 lbs, this is a little over 8 from what I understand. Its gonna be kewl!

That 3 pounds will make more difference than you think, but I'ld also bet the MBX6T weighs more than the 8lb min.. I think it is around 9.5ish.. So, you might not be too different, other than the Mugen will handle way better..

I am so looking forward to showing up at the track with this, I will get a .21 fer giggles as I have ordered another mount for the Strobe. I can swap between 37 and 37.5mm. Next season here is a long way away, so I do get a chance to get the bugs ironed out. Here is where I'm at awaiting key ingredients. I could have put one of the 5965MGs in however I decided to swap out two 645s for rudder/elevator duty in my Edge. It will come with the rest of the request list next week, fingers crossed.

Still waiting on the parts I ordered. Hopefully this week sometime. I got a bit bored last night so I tried a couple different paint techniques on the OEM. Expanding the ol' skill set a bit.
I had a bit of trouble keeping the toolbox matting down to make the faux CF look. I might try black first next time too. Anyone know of something I can apply to the matting to make it "stick" so it comes of clean? The fade I'll work on too.

OK, got most of it done. Still awaiting on a couple of odds n ends such as the Strobe mount. I worked on the linkages using a couple spare 645s and to set initial end points with the DX3S. I threw the Calibers on at first only because we have snow on the ground and the Holeshots would spin more.

ORIGINAL: (MRC) Scotty!

... but I'ld also bet the MBX6T weighs more than the 8lb min.. I think it is around 9.5ish..
Dry, it comes in at 8.03 lbs.

I have to wait for the starter box, Hitec HS-7950TH and HS-7940TH, 2000mAh lipo, sensors as well as the Strobe to lock everything down and button it up.
