To anyone using the Jammin Super Big Bore shocks on the MBX5R:

Were there any modifications necessary to get these shocks to fit or to get them to line up so they don't bind?
I've read that on the Xray, the rear arms need clearanced.

Anyone have pics of these on there car?

Patience is a virtue.

If it's smaller than this one, which is just 5 AA sized cells, then yes. I run the mugen pack and it's pretty much a perfect fit.

Default Mugen Diff

I was reading some of the post last week, actually what is the use of not using the S3 O-Ring in the diff gear? Does it really work to avoid leaking? Any disadvantages of doing so? Such as the gears might get worn out easily?

Please advise and thanks in advanced. Happy New Year to all .

frees up the diffs enough to allow diff fluids to make a difference.

Don't forget to use longer screws on the diffs. The stock 3x8mm flat heads are too short. You can use 3x14mm flat heads.

Hi Alan,

Happy New Year! I'm doing good. Will be going to CRCRC but for the electric race to run my brushless/LiPo MBX5R conversion. Then in March I'm going to the SilverState race so hopefully I'll see you soon.

As for weight, when I built my old ProSpec out of the box for the 2006 Nats at the Farm2, I ran a Ninja with Ninja pipe & header, 105g hump pack, Mugen dish wheels with Panther KII's with standard foams and the lightweight Prospec body and my car w/o fuel was 7 lbs 13.2 oz's. Some motors are heavier than others but the new molded foams add a lot of weight (at least 3.5 oz's).

Best regards,

The last time I weighed a Mugen was a stock MBX5 (all stock parts). It came in at 7lbs, 11oz with a KO receiver, 5 cell 2/3A hump pack, Collari (werks) 3 port and Nova 086 pipe. I think the Prospec and R are a little heavier but not much.
