gashuffer,

On the MO5 Pro the rear ball stud can be mounted in either the top or bottom hole on the rear upright. It will only change your rear camber angle and ride height. On large tracks I have found it not to have that much affect on the car's handling. However on a tight technical track I use the upper hole, seems to make the car easier to drive. The other change you can make is to place a two degree rear hub on the car from the standard MO5 kit which will make the car even more stable and give more steering.

I swap the rear uprights for different tracks and have them setup with a ball stud and axles etc, so five minute tuning change.

On the small adjustable rear camber link I place a spacer between the plastic cups, so the spacing is equal. I do not change this from the instruction setting. Perhaps in the future I will experiment, however I am very happy with the handling of my MO5M and MO5L.

Regards,

Calvin.

I've used Krylon Fusion for Plastics, works very well for plain plastic parts..

Just keep in mind any binding that may occur at the arms and uprights with the extra layer of paint..

I don't have the pro. How can you tell if your using a 2 degree rear hub from the standard version? The reason why there are the two hole options on the rear uprights is because the wider the link is to the chassis the more roll the car will have and visa versa.

gashuffer,

The 2 degree rear uprights are what come standard in the MO5 basic kit. They are also included in the MO3M and MO3L 2006 Cooper kit. The original MO3 ships with zero degree rear up rights with the optional 2 degree upright sold seperately.

Yeah racing and Tamiya do a 1.5 degree rear alloy upright which comes with an adjustable link. These have two holes in the upright. When fitted to the MO3 the ball stud is fitted to the top hole and on the MO5 Pro the bottom hole. I have found the top hole to be useful on tight technical tracks with a shorter upper arm link than what the instructions suggest.

With the MO5 we have found ride height can have a huge influence on the cars handling.

Regards,

Calvin.

You could also save yourself a lot of time and money and NOT buy them...

The Tobee gears are very, very, poorly made with a badly cut gear pitch profile, poor materials and compatibility. When they're installed (once you work out how) the noise they make is horrendous. And yes I know what I'm doing everything was set-up perfectly.

I was convinced my gearbox had exploded it was so bad. Any small numerical gearing gain is offset 50 times by the inefficiency of these gears. I wouldn't recommend them to anyone

Forget it..

The stock gears are fine. If anything get the 3racing ones, but you really don't need them.

Are you talking about the alloy one? I have the alloy one and it meshes fine. If you're new to alloy/steel gears then you're gonna be shocked by the higher pitched sound of them meshing, but it's perfectly normal. The Tobee spur is a simple drop in fit, so I don't know what you mean by "once you work out how".

You can't beat metal gears for durability that's why many Nitro cars only use metal gears. If you don't want to replace worn out spurs then you have no choice but to go with a metal one.

Curious to know what pinion (pitch and teeth number) you used with the Tobee alloy spur and which mounting holes.

BTW aren't you the same guy that said the carbon gear shafts aren't worth the money because they don't spin?

It's not even worth dignifying your post with a response.....
