Thumbs up MBX5R, OS V-SPEC, JP-3 WHAT SETUP for CRYSTAL PARK

Whats up guys, I recently posted a threaad titled "What would you buy if money were of no concern" in hopes of getting some ideas on what to buy. Well I read all you guys advice and finally finished my new 1/8 buggy.

What set up should i have to run at Crystal Park and Rvelation Raceway ?
What shock weights, and what diff oils? Should i let the arms droop all the way or should i restrict it with the droop screws (If so ho should i measure the droop? Here is pics of my new car

You might want to re-think your break linkage. The fuel tubing on the servo side may actuate the brakes when you pull the trigger.

Lose the fuel tubing on the trhottle side as well, it looks like at nuetral the throttle spring is fully compressed. When you hit brakes its gonna bind in the carb slide and over stress the servo. Cant tell but it looks like your running scaretronics servos as well. Itll burn up fast that way.

Also grab an aluminum servo horn for the steering, unless you have your servo saver set ultra soft itll break or strip.

I put the fuel tubbing on the throttle so it will pull the slide open right when the servo moves. I see what your saying about the throttle spring. It seems the spring is just to long. Should I cut it with some wire cutters to make it shorter so it is not as compressed? I got an aluminum servo arm but when i mount it it has a little play in it and it is taller than the plastic one. Is thee a way to make the Aluminum one more snug, or did i just get a crappy servo arm Thanks for the tips guys, I am fixing these things now.

Hey Jon,

Did you mount those tires backwards? Looks like the rib should be on the outside of the rim instead of the inside as you have them mounted. Is there something im missing?
