Hi there,

just building my 5 and got a question. What is the weak spot around the front upper arm? People are using a longer turnbuckle - what's the point here? Do you want more threads in the arm, or more of the turnbuckle supporting the ball cup which is connected to the upright. I could as well move the OEM turnbuckle more to the outside in order to support the cup.
So in short: Which part needs reinforment?

Thank you, Stefan

the current turnbuckle quite easy to bend and come off.

The newer revision probably will be made from 4mm thick turnbuckle and 6mm longer.

For the moment, you can use Xray T2 and T3's turnbuckles ( made from hudy springsteel ) are stronger and longer than the original.

So the turnbuckle itself will break?

Yes. It will snap. I use the mrx4x upper arms and knuckles and the car works very well.

Thanks for the feedback Mr. Hammer

Good to know that the MRX-4 parts could be used in a pinch. Let's see how the 5 works with OEM parts on european tracks with grass infields - maybe we won't have the issue here...

NO, save you money, it just a personal preference. No advantage and more belts that can and will be damaged. Plus the gears cannot hold up from pitting from garbage of the track when running no matter if there harden or not, IMO. Put your money to better things for the car,

Default Pulleys

Yes to the aluminum pulleys, I changed the front 16 (mrx4x) to the aluminum pully at the beggining of this season and have not changed it since.
The pully still looks as good as the day I put it on, along with a front belt tensioner and I have not stripped a front belt since.
Most guys here run the Titan pulleys from Serpent readily available a good price.
I had a couple of guys here say they were not worth it and now they too have full aluminum pullys.
Take from this what you will but I believe they are a good choice.
