LCRC Raceway's Buyers Guide: Mugen

Want to know whats nice about putting our top suggestions onto one page? Here's the thing; I'm guessing if you have a Mugen, the people buying gifts for you this year probably don't really understand what you want. Don't worry, we have your back: Just forward this email with a little note about the product you wanted for Christmas this year, and how they should buy it from LCRC because they are your favorite track on the East Coast, and family run, and have really cute kids that are always running around the shop so you know your purchase pays for them to go to college, and blah blah blah.  You get the drift. 

So here are the products Kevin thinks you can't live without, starting with cars from the Mugen platform. You already know his love for this brand, but why should you buy Mugen? For a lot of reasons, but first and foremost, because Kevin, the owner of LCRC, races this brand!  What does that mean for you as a customer? It means our inventory is expansive, and we usually have the best selling accessories, before you even know you need them. (Case in Point; Check out those Flash Point Wing Buttons!) It also means a great buying experience, with one on one expert advice on what you need to get a great set up, right from the build stage.

Read below to see why the accessories are on Kevin's list of other must haves! 

Kevin says, "The ESC has a very robust case that is durable."
Kevin says, "Yes, it communicates faster between the radio and receiver, but the reason I use it is because its lighter. I have trouble with my hands going to sleep while I drive, and this lighter weight radio made a big difference."

7. KO Propo RSx3 Power High Torque Servo
Kevin says, "I currently have 10 of these servos between all of my cars, and not a single one is Version 3. Most are originals, and some are version 2, and I am yet to have a failure. They are strong and durable, and its worth spending the money one time for a servo that will last for years and years." 
8. Flash Point Wheel Nuts
Kevin says, "They are magnetic with the Flash Point Wheel wrench, they are captured, and they look cool. "
9. Mugen Aluminum Servo Saver
Kevin says, "I have never built an 1/8 scale Mugen car without upgrading to the aluminum servo saver. Why? In short, because if you crash a lot, the steering linkage takes a lot of abuse. Its very worth eliminating a possible breaking point at the plastic arm."
10. SWorks Emusion Shock Caps
Kevin says, "The pro's don't all agree, but in my opinion, these shock caps settle the car and make it easier to drive." 
11. *NEW* Flash Point One Piece Wing Button
 "The new one piece wing button by Flash Point strengthens the wing stay by providing a support across both sides of the tower."
12. LCRC Shock Stand Off Mod for Mugen
"Installing the Shock Stand Off Mod tilts the top of the rear shock towards the rear, which provides better rear grip."
13. Mugen 20G Chassis Weight
"Installing the Chassis Weight is another great step towards better rear grip."
14. JConcepts Reflex Green Tires
"Green JConcepts Reflexes are my favorite tire on our track. They offer the perfect compromise between grip and length of wear."
15. Mugen 1.2mm Graphite Front Arm Plate
16. Mugen 1.2mm Graphite Rear Arm Plate
"The A-Arm plates stiffen the Arms, making the car more agile, and they look cool."
