btw, Scott prefers to use the long springs for his front shocks.
wat's the rationale behind that anyone knows?

n.e.r.d- that is Scott's setup for the MBX5 Prospec, he wasn't runnig the new R at the beggining of the year at Silver State.

As for the springs I would have to say that with a longer spring you have more coils and this would make for a smooth transition.

he was running the mbx5 prospec when he won the silver state this year wasnt he. Im about to get a suspension conversion kit to make my mbx5 prospec to mbx5r. I know this has been asked but will my prospec shock springs work with the new 5r's shocks?

Tony- yes the new R runs the same springs as the old Prospec, you just have to run alot more shock clips. Mugen is supposed to be releasing the new longer springs like Scott Hughes has been running, which will be the same length as the MBX5T truggy springs, that only come in red right now which is a little stiff for the buggy, but will work.

Nerd it's interesting that setup sheet you posted the link to for Scott's Worlds setup on his X5R. He emailed me direct his 06 Worlds setup and it's a bit different from the link you have up.

LOL I just got it a few hours ago and now it's on my work PC. I'll see what I can do to post it up tommorow when I'm back at work. I'm pretty jacked up to be going back to racing a Mugen again. Kris and Robbie at Mugen USA are just plain salt of the earth guys IMO. I should have my kit in a few days direct and I'm trying to do all the research I can and get setup info before I throw it together.

Kris talked me into a Ninja motor and pipe combo at the same time. I wasn't a hard sell as there is nothing worse than building a brand new buggy and putting an old motor in it LOL

Oh it took me less than 10 minutes to sell my used Losi 8ight on the starting grid. Good Luck to em

hi

wanting to upgrade my mbx5 (just to get same steering effect)

was wondering if the 4mm titanium Turnbuckles E0823 is necessary?

could i just buy the following and use the old turnbuckles?

E0814 steering tie rod ends
E0817 ball stud for steering links


or you cant use the new rod end with the old turnbuckle?

thanks

The newer turnbuckles are thicker than the older ones, the rod ends are made for 4mm threads, so the smaller ones won't work.

There is no difference in performance. The hard-coated pipes have a more durable finish. That's all.
