So who's going to be the first to get the Ninja 28 ?


almost got the Ninja 21 when i first got this truggy kit. Tony P. had a few new extra mills when they first came out but decided on the C6.
don't know too much about the 28 but im sure it rips by the looks of Tony's tests results.

extended chassis, much better quality material 7075-T6 billet aircraft, less flex, much more improvement on tight turns & much better handling all around. ended up changing to composite chassis braces with BCE chassis.

thanks bud... I had time to run 3 tanks so far and it kranked right up without any major adjustments. I was helping my buddy on a few of his race classes so that was all the time i had this past week for the truggy. So far it looks and sounds really nice.

this is a starter plate for the Mugen MBX5T -produced by (SLOWER THAN YOU) a member at truggyracers.

easily assembled and makes it a breeze to start the truggy.

this is ONLY for Ofna's Chrome top starters.
