looks like you could turn the head on that motor and get some more air to her.

They make a big difference in handling. I don't know about AE shocks though. I used Kyosho BB shocks.

I'm actually using Jammins, I should be able to make em work. I'm going to take some measurements and do some test fitting today. I'll let you all know how well they fit.

It's my daughters, and her first time racing so I'm not going to dump a ton of $ into it. Hell I can probably find a cheap used R roller or at least the parts I need here.

Default MBX5R

A pic of my MBX5R can be seet at http://www.glolar.com/rc/myrides.htm.

By the way, it's for sale (I got the MBX6 a while ago). Just send an email thru the website's contact page at http://www.glolar.com/rc/contactlucas.htm

Yes, the 5R is a great car still. I won the JBRL and Best of the West (Sportsman) with it, before I bought the MBX6 recently.

Thanks
