getting ready for this weekend. lol brake set ups are better now (bigger diff than i thought need between real loomy surface from hard packed surface) and had to remove 2 burrs from my clutch shoes on my prospec. odd how those effect off power coasting and jumping. lol jump and in mid flight the wheels would slow way down into a nose dive lol.

I take it you're using aftermarket bushing for the upper arm mount?

they are BRASS and you buy an extra centered one so you can run them front and back no big deal

Default MBX5

Hi all, I just bought a 2nd hand buggy which mention at above. Currently I thinking of to rebuilt it with change all the diff oil. Before I open up the diff what are the thing I need to prepare? Do I need to prepare gasket? Do the diff need gasket in between? What is the weight should I put f/m/r.

One thing need advise. Whan I use hand to turn the wheel, I can hear the diff metal sound like metal hit with metal is this mean inside the diff already less oil?

Please advise and thanks in advance.

Hey guys, just bought this: Brand New Mugen MBX5-R, With Novarossi Plus 21-5, Ninja Pipe, GRP tyres!

Just a couple of setup related questions from the setup sheet:

1. Rebound stop, is this droop? If so, is it just a case of placing a wheel under the car and measuring how far the upright sits of the table?

2. Upper Arm position: Are the positions shown done using inserts?

3. What does E0106(A-D) refer to?

4. How is rear toe and anti squat set?

Also, what things should I be keeping a close eye on, other than the usual checking of threadlock etc. I've heard to ensure the servo saver gets a good clean and lube and to super glue the pillow balls? Things like that...

Thanks.

Default MSR truggy

Hi guys,
I'm new to offroad and been looking around for a truggy kit...
Came across a MSR truggy which is converted from MBX5...
Is it any good?? or should i go search for a actual truggy with long arms not offset wheels...
thanks

Without a doubt get the 5T kit not the MSR conversion.

IMO- shop for the mbx5t. i think you will be happier with the purpose built truggy.

1.Rebound stop is the Droop measure use new rims under the chassis and measure under the uprights front and rear
2.Upper arm Bushings are used flip the bushes to suit E0106a-b or E0106c-d
3. E0106a-b or c-d refer front upper arm mount position ,if you look closely at the under side of these plastic pieces they are marked a-b and c-d take notice of the hole placement ,these are for roll centre changes.
4. Rear toe thru back plate should be marked
5. rear anti squat Alloy plate before rear diff housing use bushes to get anti squat setting .
download a set-up sheet from Mugen and it is fairly easy to work out
cheers
