Jason is right, I just wanted info. If people read some posts as dissing the MBX5R, I was not in any way. I was just comparing and contrasting to what I currently own. I refuse to rush into a purchase, especially for a hobby I dearly enjoy.

best way to do that is look at one in person (local track) and see if they will let you drive it and watch what they do to prep one!that is what i did. you make a choice like that then it is no longer an opinion but one based on experience

Wait till you see what Innovative Designs RC has in store for the next set of lightweight pivot balls They are lighter then the first generation, lighter then the Mugen lightweight balls and lighter than the new Dace pivot balls. I'm dong some R&D and durability testing in both my truggy and buggy and so far they are holding up fantastic. They are hard anodized and teflon coated for ultra smooth operation. They are 24 grams lighter than stock.

So what is the common starting setup guys are using? I looked on mugen's site but only found 1 setup. Is there any others out there? Looking for one that is pretty common to go with.

Many people use Scott Hughes setup.

unfortunately Innovative doesn't have a website at this time. Some of the bigger online retailers like Carolinasrc, Bmainhobbies and Amainhobbies carry there stuff thou. Not sure how soon the new pivot balls I'm testing will be available to the public but I will get an answer and post back here soon.

Innovative has some cool items they sell like a Stainless steel heavy flywheel for the GT2, some trick tools and his lottaballs for pivotball cars, velocity stack carb inserts for Novarossi carbs etc etc.

Search some of those sites and you'll see there stuff.

for removing the locknuts on the pins i simply cover over one end of a closed wrench with some glazing tape, this stuff remains sticky for ages and is totally flexible so you can push the nut in till its held and then just screw it on, presto easy changes if anyone can tell me an easier way ill try it.

Quick question, Ihave just finish building my new mbxr buggy and was just wondering if people left the small orings on the cross pins out of the front and centre diff aswell? The instruction say to only leave it out of the rear and that is what i did.
