One other pretty cool thing to check out is...

http://www.carolinasrc.com/webstore/...?idproduct=690

Holy crap...it's like a new car...no slop at all, still free. I have no idea how well they holdup over time, but it's so nice right now.

I've also had http://www.carolinasrc.com/webstore/...?idproduct=404 and

http://www.carolinasrc.com/webstore/...?idproduct=453

on the car for quite a while just to eliminate some parts. No e-clips, less hardware, no stripped-out pin mounts.

My car was pretty tired when I got it, so most of the hop-ups I've bought thus far were to replace worn out parts or make the car simpler (or both). I've never really broken anything on it, aside from an arm or two.

I had a big lead in my race and pitted early when I was coming up on lapped traffic. (12 miute race) I was 1 turn behind the guy who took the lead but hadn't pitted when I lost the steering servo. Oh well. The car was good and I felt I was driving pretty well too. Traffic was a little tough but not too terrible.

I have the mbx 5 prospec, and I am going to install the 48 tooth spur gear (muge0218) will I need any other parts from the "r" kit to make it fit? I just want to make sure I order everything at the same time I'm going to need! Thanks! I am not sure if its a direct fit or not.

The 48T spur gear will fit the MBX5, MBX5 ProSpec, MBX5R and MBX5T with no issues.

as for hopups, check out the light-weight pillow ball options out there. The stock pillow balls are steel and weigh 50 grams. The lighter options out there knock off about one ounce (28 grams) and that is unsprung weight. The car handles better and has better traction with less unsprung weight.

You can get them from: DaceMfg, Lottaballs, CBRS, K-Factory and Thunder Tiger. The DaceMfg and CBRS balls are steel shaft with aluminum ball that has been teflon coated. The Lottaballs use a steel shaft and polyethylene ball (with graphite). The K-factory ones are Titanium. Not sure what the Thunder Tiger ones are made of?

Best regards,

Speaking of screws...does anyone know the screw size for the Ninja that connects the cooling head to the engine? (The four that go in the cooling head.) Thanks in advance!

Does anyone know if the TTR 48t spur gear is the same as the mugen? I heard they were the same and the TTR is only $13? I run the TTR option brakes and lightened pillow balls, but not sure about the whole spur gear thing. Anyone try this yet?

I'm pretty sure the TTR has a larger outdrive shaft diameter. The Mugen is only 5mm.

Anyone looking for a Mugen off-road starter box I have one like new for sale in the Buy/Sell forums. Comes with two 3,000mah NiMh batteries with Dean's Plugs on them.

I wish you had that for sale 2 months ago. I looked everywhere for that starter box. I guess my Kyosho box works fine but I really like the Mugan.

LOL Jon. The box is sold already. Man was that quick!

But I do have another one for sale that is older. Will take less for that one.
