Best rigid rear axle MKI or MKII

Recommended Posts

Hey all, hope everyone is keeping well.

Reason for this thread is that my local club is starting a vintage class of buggy racing apparently. As a fan of the Mad Bull and having a load of spare parts, my first thought was Fighter Buggy RX or Mad Fighter. With all this time to overthink, I have also been toying with the idea of a Hornet and some Ampro reinforcements. 

So the question for people with experience of both axle/ gearboxes is, which is stronger, the MKI on the Hornet or the MKII on the Mad Bull/Fighter Buggy/Rising Fighter?

I know these platforms are not ideal for racing but I am not considering anything else. I like a challenge!

Recently whilst in covid lockdown I had a wizz around the front concrete drive and front garden with a grasshopper 2 super g, a rising fighter fitted with oil dampers and my version of a slightly lowered and modified rear axle to stop it tramping and a fighter buggy rx.  The fighter buggy chassis was far better over the bumpy front garden and harder to flip over on the concrete.

This is what I thought. I think the Fighter Buggy is the sensible option being that I have a load of spares already. I thought of the Hornet when watching some YouTube videos and hearing glowing praise of the rear axle and gearbox.
