You got the rb fuel gun? I'm probably going to have to check this out... Have you compared it to the dynamite one?

What Handeling diferences will you get by using the long springs verses the standard springs? What springs come in the Pro Spec kit?

Powerby,

We spoke about the short springs on page 7 I beleave. This is some info I brought over.

"kyracer... the shorter springs, be they blue, gray, or white, are a good tuning option for tracks with a variety of terrain. It is wrong to assume, though, that a shorter spring will reduce you travel. You will still have the same amount of travel, the spring will just be compressed more for its size thus creating the progressive feel. A shorter Shock Tower will reduce your up travel, but not the spring.

If you have a fairly rough track with larger jumps and you experience bottoming problems, i.e. the chassis is slapping the ground, try the short blues. Soft for good rough handling, but the spring rate ramps up more at the end of its travel than the standard gray, or blue for that matter. just an option."


I will check out the RB concept gun. THANKS

I haven't tried any fuel guns yet, but from what I've heard from my friends on the West coast, the new ProLine fuel gun is the shizzle!

The Mugen may have been around for the last two years plus, but the car has seen many running changes. Scott Hughes TQ'd and won the recent SilverState race with a MBX5. The track was totally blown out and guys were having major trouble, yet Scott SMOKED the field. Every factory driver in the US was there as well as many International drivers. The car is still good even though they are working on a new car and truck due later this summer. Parts availability is great, prices are low and the car is by far the most durable buggy out there. Plus you can get a new X5 or ProSpec for dirt cheap now. Mugen is blowing out the kits at awesome prices.

Anyone want to trade a couple right front lower arms for a couple left front lower arms?

I'm going to go and get a couple pairs...but for some reason, I seem to only break left lower arms. Well, there's a good reason actually...the two fastest turns on our track are left and they both have vertical pipes on the inside.

Great buggy, though...it's my first 1/8th buggy and I'm hooked. Very tough car.

Hi guys, apart from changing to the prospec hinge pins what can I do to prevent the E clip from being bent and subsequently popped off the pin?

Anyone encountered this problem and remedied it without having to replace the item to the prospec item?

You could put a dab of Shoo Goo on the clips.

Default Chad Bradley´s setup???????

Hello, I suppose all you have read Chad Bradley´s Basic set up in
Carolinarc.
But I saw in this set up Chad Doesn’t say nothing about Front Kick up.
Anybody know which is the basic set up of front kick up?
Thanks in advance

Not sure on the JLB shocks.

I run the KMW shocks on my MSR, and they seem just as nice as the JLB shocks. They're not Teflon coated, but anodized nicely and hold up very well.

They are available through TKO Racing

As far as set-ups go, I recommend going to mugenracing.com and getting Jason Ashton's set-up. Anyone of them will do as they don't differ by much at all. The set-ups off of this site are printed on the actual mugen mbx5 set-up sheet. Chad Bradley's are there as well, but I believe the Aston set-ups to be easier to achieve and closer to stock.

I have been running the new Scott Hughes set-up that Mugen Japan recently posted on their site after his Silver State win.
