Anybody know if a Mugen MBX5R can accept any other clutchbell/flywheel besides their own? Like maybe a AE or Losi. If so what tooth.

You can use a whole Kyosho clutch setup with flywheel, springs, shoes, and clutch bell. I suggest sticking with the Mugen clutch bells if using a Mugen clutch. Jammin clutch setup should also fit.

well i have printed out setup guides and have a load of notes made out form you guys and am going get some more shock oil when get a chance will buy a good few bottle of variety and printed out a load of setup sheets to try out different things and keep track of what changes improve and worsen the overall handling. Been talkign to guy at the track he said number one rule on it is max droop.

well thanks for help anyway guys and will be in touch after the next race day and let use no how i get on and what worked best for me etc.
thanks adam
ok well i actually missed that raceday due to heavy rain and didnt think was worth travelling the distance for it to be cancelled which it wasnt grrrr.

so had my first race with the car and new setup but to my shock the whole track had changed one new huge jump really high and a bomb hole to go in and out of and a new triple added in and complete new route and layout grrrrrrrrrrrrrr. (check out the website for pics should be on forum www.badmcc.com)
anyway practice went bad with 70+ seconds laps most others in low 60s high 50s per lap them my steering rods kept poping out so i figured this was due to too much droop and odly i was correct so adjusted that and added few extra suspension spacers to help with large jump and that was problem fixed still didnt have new jumps mastered and was time for first heat. i finished 4th in my heat and after first round was 9th overall seond round i managed bet my laps down to 55 seconds onstead of 65-70 and mastered the jumps and was 7th overall. round 3 didnt go so well for me so overall was siiting 10th which usually woda ment 10th in the A final but they decided to run less people in the A final so i was 1st in the B final and then i had a flame out just when the 10 9 8 countdown started my pitman managed to get my car started so i had to start from pitlane after all cars past managed get back up and stay 1st-2nd posistion with few minutes left lost all power in engine glowplug had half went so i had to pull in as didnt wnat to do any damage


but i had 0 grip roles and 2 roles due to front brakes locking up on me but thats sorted now. open day at the track on wed so going down to master it and then racing on sunday again yeh hopefully will improve on the result as was disapointed.

Allan put a M4 button head screw in from below the larger contact area will help save the chassis plate at the expense of slightly reduced droop, to make adjustment easy cut a slot in the thread end so you can quickly adjust droop at the track it works, if you want to stay with the allen grub screw arrangement then grind the end flat then take the edges of to make it more rounded this im told also helps, the first way will save you having to buy a new chassis for now.

Has anyone tried the Fioroni ultra light mbx5r hard-coat chassis(ot-ur30).
Just like to get some input before I shell out $115.00 for one. I was considering the BCE chassis but it's longer than stock and would require a
longer drive shaft, plus the new mbx6 is coming out with a shorter chassis?
Your input would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

As far as I know there are no performance gains on the fioroni chassis. The bce chassis is supposed to improve the handling and stability by making the car longer, I have the bce chassis just have yet to install it. As far as price they are about the same even including the longer rear drive shaft that is needed on the bce. I will post my results once I put the chassis on, will be putting it on this week.
