I had the same problem with my MBX5T. I tried 2 things that helped a lot = 48T spur and 12T clutch bell. These things really helped get the car to move coming off of a turn so that it would generate the speed needed to make the jump. I have the 12t in stock but sold the 48.

do you run the recommended pinion gear with the 35t crown gear or just run the crown gear on its own?

Why use a 35 tooth crown gear. It has a 40t now, or am I thinking of the wrong gear?

I have been racing mugen mbx5 prospec for while and recently got the mbx5r and was racing sunday last. I used the same setup as my old car on my new car or very similar anyway. BUT i am having a problem with the car rolling at a particular part on the track as its a long rough and corner. I was using 40 front 37.5 rear as the track has a load of jumps i lowered the car 3mm and it handled better but on landing one of the jumps in the final flywheel musta hit ground or somthing as car just stalled on landing.

so looking for any advice to help stop the car rolling shock positions are on the lower arms (holes closest to the wheel) and on the shock towers middle mounting holes. pistons etc are stock.

i am wondering should i try running shockoil 35 30 or 30 30.

thanks

no you are on the right gear thinking there it just works different to how you think it would work if that makes sense, i always thought the bigger gear would aid acceleration as a bigger spur does but it doesnt the smaller crown gear will turn faster than a bigger gear does and increases acceleration in the process.

Maximugen
thats what i thought just wanted to make sure as people do read what is on these forums and do whats posted

I run the 38t in the rear with the stock bevel believe it or not.. it works well and the mesh is good. I purchased the recommended 11t bevel but the mesh wasnt to my likeing so the stock was put back in and i havent had any problems. the rpm increaseed giving me a lil jump on the hairpins
