look at the front of the chassy were the front lower arms sit and it should have a cut out for the arms to sit lower for the new front lower arm mount. also the lower suspension arms have a bigger resess for the shock spring keeper.

Yeah, I wasn't sure if that was with a full tank. I was looking for some real world numbers.

engines, pipes, servos, recievers, reciever packs all play a role in weight, and iirc 3200 grams is dry weight minimum and every car i know is between 3300-3500

Default Where to find MBX5R kit?

All of the sites that I've check all have the MBX5R kit out of stock or on backorder. Some online hobby shops have said that more are due Mid-April. Does anyone know when Mugen will be shipping more kits to the dealers?

Yeah, use Scott Hughes set up but go up one position on the shock towers. Also, talk to Ronda when you get out there...

I don't know if you can get them anymore... I have not seen them in stock anywhere for awhile now.

But here's a link... I guess you can call and ask if you can get them anymore.

http://www.carolinasrc.com/Webstore/...?idproduct=329

However, these were in stock...

Does King Headz make a one-piece engine mount for the MBX5T? I've looked all over and all I can find is the two piece mounts.

I am thinking about stealing the gearing idea from the RC8 and using Truggy gears in he Diffs and a 44/16 spur pinion set up. It make sense to get the spur/pinion closer to 1/1 to help with the mesh. It sounds dumb but i also may want to run truggy again someday and it would not take much to convert my R over. a lot less than a new one anyway. Dont flame me to much, i just like tinkering with these things, for me its half the fun. Sometimes i think i enjoy working on my cars more than driving them.
