Thank you.
However - im currently running:
MBX6 - 15-5-10
801X - 10-5-5

But I still want more! I want to solve wide turns by adding power. idling through sharp turns just doesent do for me
unless your running on some pretty HIGH BITE 15 5 10 will not turn on a mbx6

Run your car backwards, this should give you wicked steering....

Default set up

Go to HUDY website click on 1/8 universal offroad set up sys. then click on downloads. This has helped me with setups.

I've read the hudy setup guide, but it seems to many other setups out there now, trend seems to be thicker oil. Mostly running on dirt - hard packed.

Thumbs up Easy to fix on the 6.....

First go back to a normal diff setup. I would go 5-10-3. Then move the front upper arm all the way forward. This will reduce front caster. I always do this on the mugen with the pivot ball front end on buggy. Next limit the shocks a little inside with spacers. Maybe 3mm front and rear. Keep the shocks on the inside hole. the car has so much travel. that's good but not too much. then put 2 degree rear toe in block and leave the anti squat alone. Put 50 wt front oil and 40 rear with medium pistons or whatever it comes with. Adjust your brake bias toward the rear and set it just befor it locks up you don't want to spin out before the turn, and lessen the front brake just until it starts turning better. Brakes play a big part and the mugen has strong brakes. Limit the servo travel a little on the brakes and loosen the calipers in the front a little more to keep them from locking up. Finally you need to slow down before the turn and accelerate in the turn. the mugen will turn great if you do the above and slow down a bit to go faster. Good luck.........

Exclamation Ahh

So your thinking again that's the problem. Why don't you give some advice? I've tuned mbx6's for my friends and I've been racing for 20 years. I would think a little constructive advice would help more than being critical of others who are trying to help. Mr 20-20-20... Oh but if it works for you. I don't think you really have a clue....I'm trying to help. If your not then go away.
