Mad Bull - Fighter Buggy

Recommended Posts

Are these two cars the same apart from the wheels and shell?

Are there any other differences?

My boy has trashed his Fighter Buggy, and I thought it might be cool to rebuild it as a Mad Bull.

the stub axles that the front wheels sit on are longer on the madbull

The Mad Bull is funner. :)

I've got all three DT-01 buggies and the Mad Bull is my favorite. Those big tires just encourage bad behaviour.

Mad Bull, Mad Fighter & Fighter Buggy Rx are all basically the same chassis with different bodies/mounts.

Just change the stub axles to longer ones and add Mad Bull wheels and you're good to go.

Edit: Now that I think about it the steering links on the Mad Bull are a bit beefier. I don't think it matters much, since the Figher Buggy ones are pretty stout, and the length is the same, but if you notice a lot of flexing or if they break you could always replace them with Mad Bull links later.

Do you not get both links in the kit? :unsure: , I think I have the smaller links left over from a Mad Bull kit.

Whats the third one, would that be the Rising Fighter?

So all I'll need to get are front stub axles and a set of wheels then?

By the looks of it, the Rising Fighter has a Grasshopper 2/Super Hornet chassis with upgraded Fighter Buggy gearbox.

But i could be wrong! :unsure:

Main difference is the colour of the plastic used. The Madbull mainly uses Grey, where as the Fighter Buggy uses black. Most parts are interchangable though.
