+1 on the good switch, I recommend the JR heavy duty. It's what I use on my $7000 airplanes and have never had one fail.
Plugging in and out a connector not meant for that many insertions is asking for trouble.

More year droop (smaller number) for corner entry or more front droop (again smaller number) for corner exit. Try 0 or -1 front with 8 or 9 rear.

More effective change, drop the rear shocks to the innermost holes.

Default Hudy starter box

Hi guys,

I need a new starter-box for my MRX. I always wanted the Mugen box but a couple of weeks ago Hudy came out with their box which looks really good as well.
Has anyone already got some experience with this new starter?

Thanks a lot for your feedback. Best regards, Stefan

My vote :

1. Ofna flat bed starter box with single 775 motor and glow igniter station. I know this is an ugly starter box, but it is the toughest box.

2. Original Mugen Seiki starter box equipped with lipo battery and spare belts.

try lowering the rear roll center That will give you a more planted feel

the hudy's is almost the same design as serpent's, which personally i believe it is suck, many people in my country dropped to use it. the reason is the chassis is sitting on an elevated stand, the middle of the chassis is suspended, the force is applied and the chassis takes all of it. we are afaid that the chassis will be "affected" or "bent" somehow. i threw away mine.

i have kept using mugen's and i have no complaint. the chassis is just sitting on a flat platform and you just start your car with the chassis sitcking exactly on the platform.

just my 2 cents
