No. I have the Eco version. It has a hole for the spur gear & a cut out for the motor, but no cut out for a flywheel. It is a different chassis from the nitro version, different holes, different cut outs.

I'm just a little curious about front camber. I notice the kit has washers on both lower and upper arms. If I adjust the top arm/ loosen upper pillow ball to help get me -1.0 camber it will leave the upper washer flopping around. Is the ok or right? Should I remove the upper pillow ball from the arm completely and install more washers? It's my first pillow ball setup and I just want to get her base line setup established but correctly like other Mugen guys. Thanks in advance for the front camber info.

Wonder why they put a hole through the chassis for the spur gear? Just makes for alot of dirt to come up through huh?

You can do that, but personally I would either remove the washer (just don't want it dangling) or add a second. The point of the washers is to get the same length on each arm with out measuring.

One of the great things about the pillow ball system with the washers is that the camber is mechanically set into position so it is almost impossible for you camber to change unless you want to change it by adding or subtracting washers.

Thanks! I really appreciate that info. I just ordered more of those washers to make this official lol.

Built my car yesterday. Went well. Drivetrain feels a bit notchy (did not shim diffs yet), will run a few packs on sunday and recheck and refill diffs.

Why are there extra unused holes in the ebuggy chassis? Looks like an xray ebuggy conversion lolz. Anyone have any cool tips to prevent dirt ingress other than locknut on chassis and a screw below?

My track runs moist clay, so helps speed up cleanup between heats.

Also anyone else run the kyosho springs (I have a bunch and very used to their feel so gonna try em out).

If the extra holes are behind the center diff they are for weights that can bolt to the chassis.
