Which 4s lipo are you using? Last MBX I used had the same tray and my hard case 4s lipos fit fine. I believe they were Gens Ace 5000mah 4s batts at the time.

Even the SMC 6700 4S Hardcase are fitting perfectly fine. Not sure what the problem is.

1. It seemed strange that there was no grease called for between the large conical gear and the bevel gear inside the diff. case. Do you guys typically lube this in any way?

2. On the other hand, I thought it was strange that the instructions did call for grease to be applied to the ends of the CVD shafts that contact the differential outdrives. On my first drive those immediately got caked with clay. Seems to me that they wear caused by that caked on buildup would be bad? What do you think?

3. Do you guys run the shock boots on your car? They seem to be restrictive and could also trap dirt/grime that could lead to premature wear.

Thanks for your help!
1. We do grease ours.
2. We have found that applying grease to these overwhelmingly reduces the wear on the outdrives themselves. Good outdrives means you only have to replace the driveshaft pins every so often.
3. We always run the boots. Without them, you will get more dirt in your shock bodies through the bottom seals.

Can mugen and associated gearboxes bolt onto each other's chassis? Are the bolt patterns the same?

It smooths out the torque from the electric motors

Good luck. I think people were using a tekno conversion or making their own through modifications. I recall you need to search on electroclutch.

Good luck. Probably be better to grab the Losi version, and see if it needs any mods.

I had the same problem when i first built my car, didn't realise the batteries i ordered were a full inch longer then most others.
Basically i cut off the vertical sections from front corner and back edge of the battery tray, did the same at the front of the esc tray and then glued the battery tray and esc tray together.
That let the battery overlap onto the esc tray slightly but still left enough room for the esc.

what 4s batteries are you guys running? For flight models? I have run Trinity, Orion, LRP, and Finally SMC... no issues.
