The MSR truck was an early conversion kit for the MBX5 buggy. It is not competitive with modern truggies.

I've never seen that happen to any Mugens tanks around here and I've used the same tank for 2 years at a time.

well you can't tighten it up and what happens is it causes air in the fuel line which also makes the engine run irratic

I got this from Mugen about the arms issue:

Quote:
ThatR17;s just what people are saying, we do not have an issue with the lower arms. And are not doing any type of exchange.



Best regards,

I was having severe tuning issues this past weekend. Pulled that tank from my 5R, and it the stonefilter is also rattling, but has not come loose yet. I could not get my engine to tune for the life of me.

Do I need a new tank? Or is there a way tighten the stonefilter in place? It seems to move up, and down about a 1/4 inch.

Thanks Sean.

As for the Mugen clutch springs, there is a bad batch out there, and has been for a few months. I have read several different threads about broken Mugen Clutch Springs. I would p/u a different brand, as stay away from the Mugens for a few more months.

Thats issue was going around a few month back. Maybe try the Ofna springs. I believe they are the same size.
Oh, I try gluing those brake pads to the brake plates for a change!?!?

Default Lower brake rod/collar touches spur gear and tank

Hi Guys,

I am building an MBX5R.

I use an Airtronics 94357 throttle/brake servo with the stock Airtronics servo horn. The fuel tubing on the rod is 10mm long.

With this setup, when going approx. half throttle, the lower brake rod is _very_ close to the spur gear and the splash guard/tank (see attached pix). So close that the collar almost touches the spur gear or the tank.

I am building according to specs and my setup matches Mugen's pictures of a built car. However, I feel that the collar might be to close to the spur gear/tank, so that it could get caught.

Is that amount of little clearance normal?

Thanks for your feedback,
Frank
