Your best bet is to leave it stock.

also in silver and blue...

put on your brakes and you see the bushings have a bit of slack, even when the bushings are new.

the bearings there remove the slack and basically will last the life of the car.

The car was really good tonight. I did add a little droop to the rear like you mentioned for the main and it was even better than in the first round. I couldn't believe how good my time was in that round. Thanks for the tip. I'll probably see you back at Revelation in a couple of weeks.

another hopup u may consider are the TTR brake discs.

they lighten up the centre diff a fair bit.

http://www.carolinasrc.com/webstore/...idproduct=1037

not essential, but i find the car brakes much better with these on.


also these kingz head front lower mount. when you land badly, the bottom bit that joins onto the chassis, they dont snap off like the plastics do and thus keeps your alignments stright.

I think the mbx5-r most people run the 0 deg block. which they dont have in stock though.

I bought one of those last year and it has almost as much slop as the worn-out stocker with bushings did...the plate is gone, just like the stocker. I know it's been a while and all...I'm not really complaining, but I didn't think it would do that...and I'm not a big "brake-r".

I'm probably going to order http://www.carolinasrc.com/webstore/...idproduct=1414 if I can get it in black.
