Yeah i tried that too but then it becomes just the same as the stock Mugen one. You are not using the offset thats build into it when you run it with the flat side down.

If you have the Kingheadz offset ackerman arm you have to run it with the flat side(offset) to the top, otherwise if you run it with the flat side down your defeating the purpose and might as well have kept your stock one on. Yes- with the Kingheadz ackerman the toe out is going to look real extreme when the buggy is on a starter box or car stand, but as far as racing goes the only time it will be that way is when the buggy is in flight over a jump. As long as you have your toe-out properly set while the buggy is setting on a flat surface at proper ride height, then you will be fine and gain the full benefit of the offset ackerman. Don't worry about what it looks like while setting on a stand at full droop.

Cool MBX5 2 SPEED

Just got a mugen MBX5 and decided to run around with my kids I was wondering if anyone knows of there is a 2 speed that will fit without to much surgery. Watching my sons OFNA 21 with 2 speed pull away is hurting my ego. Thanks in advance.

Nitro$junkie- no problem, glad I could help make your Mugen better! Good luck!

sandrixx- I would use the bottom or middle bushing position in your shock tower, and lower mounts at the rear of the top hinge pins. I have mine in the middle in the tower, with lower rear mounts and a 1.5mm shim to lower the mounts even more, and my top arms are pushed all the way forward against the tower. This setup will give you a "higher roll center" and makes the buggy very responsive to steering input, and changes directions very quickly on a tight track. Hope this helps. -Ryan
