This product was added to our catalog on June 26, 2015.
This is the Mugen Seiki MGT7E 1/8 Scale Electric On-Road Touring Car Kit. Based off the World Championship MBX7 Nitro Buggy platform, The MGT7E incorporates the World Championship pedigree with updated parts to make this machine full fledged race ready GT on-road car.
Starting at the towers, the MGT7E features front and rear shock towers that have been optimized for 16mm shock tuning to provide traction and smooth handling on asphalt. The durable front and rear gear differentials will handle the high-power electric motor of your choosing, while keeping the MGT7E under full control. The drivetrain is also very efficient with CVA’s driveshafts found throughout the kit. The combination of the high quality differentials and super efficient drivetrain allows the MGT7E to carry high speeds on the straights and through the corners with authority.
To allow you to use the body style of your choosing, Mugen has incorporated specially designed front and rear body mounts, with full adjustability, to provide the freedom of using most any body shell. Under the body up front, a large plastic bumper with foam protector helps keep the front of the body tucking during hard impacts. To the sides, tough side guards keep the internals protected the rigors of competitive racing.
To accommodate the electric side of the MGT7E, Mugen has equipped it with a specially designed battery tray that will accept two 2S LiPo batteries in a staggered mounting position for optimum weight distribution, or a single 4S Lipo battery if so choose. The updated sliding motor mount allows you can run higher KV electric motors without worrying about flex, gear mess problems or being under-powered. To keep the motor mount securely anchored down, 4mm screws are used for extra strength and security. Mugen also offers optional pinion and spur gears to fine-tune your MGT7E for maximum performance in nearly any track condition.
As many racers worldwide know, Mugen uses only the best components for their off- and on-road vehicles with the goal of creating the ultimate race vehicle. So trust me, you won't be disappointed...

The car is amazing! Superb handling, great durability, and for my track and style, the setup suggested in the manual worked great.
I chose to run a Hobbywing 150A and 2200kv motor in it, and I needed a little more top speed for the longest straight of my track, so I switched to a 2450kv motor.
Be careful to choose a motor to power your MGT7 eco, because gearing options are somewhat limited. The included 18T pinion and 44T spur are basically the highest gearing for the car.
So far, I am loving my ride and basically addicted to 1/8 GT-e!)
