What is the easiest way to tell if you have the updated front lower arms and front uprights on the mbx5 prospec? Or did all of the prospecs come with the updated arms?

the prospec comes with the updated arms and uprights. They are distinguishable via the upright. The new ones have a reinforcement webbing on top and on bottom of the steering arm where it joins the main body of the upright. The new arms have a double step design on the back of the arm to make room for the increase in steering.

FYI ... Mugen revised the front lower arms once again. Instead of having a single "/" brace, it now has an "X" brace in the arm. They also beefed up the hinge pin area.

Jon Martin from CarolinasRc posted pictures on the S-grid. He has the latest revision in stock on his website. He was going to post a picture of all three arms next to eachother, but not sure if he's done it yet. You can check out his website at CarolinasRC

I got to try the 04 Nat. Jason Ashton setup. All I can say about it is steering out the ass!! The track I ran on was VERY dry. their water system had broke so I ran it dog bone dry. At the end of the day it was very loose for everyone. I was kind of afraid to change anything.

Has anyone made any upgrades to the setup? If so what were they and how did it effect the buggy?

Also how many cc or oz. is the fuel tank??

Thanks Tony

I have been looking for a fuel gun. The 2 guns I have been looking at are the Kyosho fuel gun and the THS fuel gun.

Does anyone know of any better Al. fuel guns on the market?
