JConcepts makes cf Ackerman bars & towers. M2C makes brass ball retainers & brass weights for the rear wheels (& lots of other goodies!). Mugen makes steel pillow balls. The German company your thinking of is www.psm-rc.com.

Mugen makes a carbon top plate too.

Anyone tried the heavy pillow balls or brass inserts? I guess they're supposed to help with turn in?

Hi everyone, just built my mbx7r eco. Went together brilliantly! Came from a Team C T8E v3, and the quality difference is very obvious. A
couple of questions though.
1. What is the set screw for on the rear uprights?
2. On the rear upright shafts, I used the spacers as per manual, but I seem to be getting a tiny bit of lateral slop there. Is this normal? If not, what's the recommended fix?

Without the SK3x3 Set Screw being installed, dirt would be allowed to enter into the upright and possibly affect the C0601 8x16 Bearings. lol

One would think it's there as a lube point possibly. Maybe someone else can chime in here and provide the real reason the hole and set screw are present.

That's forward thinking.

Is there reference made in a document as to when and what to put in there?

If the hole is to lube the bearings they should have put it between them and not where the bearing race sits. Plus you would have to run the bearings with no inner shields to get them lubricated.

Could it be used to remove the bearings?

it is a spot to spray out the bearings from the inside that is clean as not to push the dirt into the bearings from the outside!!!

So does anyone know why does the 7R ECO uses 75mm long front springs but the nitro r car uses 70mm and the OG 7 gas and ECO used 70mm also ????
