Ryan The bushing with the centered hole is 2 degrees anti-squat, the bushing with upper/lower hole is 1 degree when down, and 3 degrees when up

I actually noticed that from my setup sheet after I posted and just didn't go back and edit, Thanks for pointing that out. I didn't think Mugen had a 0 setting(flat arms). Fixed now.

Hey Mike, thanks - but I write a lot of forums and will try to keep it a bit down actually. Takes a lot of time when you go thru 4,5 forums, hehe. Also I have a support-forum I made for the Norwegian Mugen drivers, and that takes up a lot of time. But if I see something I can answer on to help someone, I always do that

Very cool that you gone into the world of noise & smoke, it ruels IMO. I wish you the VERY BEST for your racing & learning Wish it was summer here But we still do races like the Winter-Battle & the first Norwegian Cup race in Febuary. Actually, we are racing Winter-Battle 3.rd round of 4 next weekend

Cheers

Well my kid had his first race ever in a buggy yesterday with his new 5r, we used the setup that ryan sent that his kid uses, worked great!. My kid (steven) ran in sportsman and had the second fastest lap in his class 19.5 sec. the top pro lap was 18.3. Steven qualified 5th in sportsman we had some reciever pack issues and he finished 7th in the a main. He has never ran with so many people on a track at one time and got hacked pretty badly a few times but came off with a big smile and said wow
He told me that the buggy was alot easier to drive then the truggy he drove last year

That's awesome gasman. The racing scene needs more dads like you and Ryan. Teaching people especially kids is more fun at the track to me than racing, but sometimes can be tricky when you're not sure on their budget. Keep him into it and show him the importance of maintainence- maybe he'll pull sponsorship and hook you up!

gasman- Congrats to Steven!!! I'm glad that setup worked well for him, and it sounds like he was turning some good laps. With kids it always helps when they have a good pitman tuning and wrenching so that they can just focus on driving.

Though I have yet to run them, I have the new long springs on my MBX5R(Thanks Tony!) and they look real nice. Their alot better than having 16mm + of shock clips taking up your shock body! I run the greys up front and blues in the rear as I always have, and now only have 4mm clips all the way around, which sets my buggy at perfect ride height for indoor(arms level). I will get the feel of them this weekend at CRCRC's Midwest Nitro Champs race in Ohio.

Ryan - I looked at your setup on page 23 of this thread. I this still the set up you are using or has it evolved with more testing? I will be running primarily on a medium traction track (crime fighters, bowties, etc) that is usually not blown out but has quite a few good sized jumps. I am just looking for a good starting set up that i can tune to my personal taste. Thanks Ryan.

Scott

Scott- As for the settings, positions etc... that's my base setup and the only adjustments I make are diff fluids, and I'm now running the longer springs, so my shock clips differ from that setup, everything else is exactly as posted. Good Luck!
