You will be fine . That area of the car will not move under norman circumstances. Take a deep breath, you are now the proud owner of a MRX5 . Take it out for a spin and let me know how it feels.

The CVD gets some teflon spray.
If you're interested, O'donnell Racing has a wax lube called O' Lube.

You guys are overthinking too much. The car isnt glitching cause of a tight radio box unless you are using a old am radio. They are having problems with the clutch heating up. .5mm? cmon guys. Anyways how does the car handle compared to the x4? I want one. Thinking about getting one and making a trip to blue diamond twice a month for fun.

I assume he is talking about the three new rear sway bars.

These are the part numbers:

H2134 Rear Sway Bar 2.7mm
H2135 Rear Sway Bar 2.8mm
H2136 Rear Sway Bar 2.9mm

Just making a guess. Never had a reciever box cause glitching before. I zip tie all my wires tightly together sometimes taping them together with electrical tape. Never had any glitches before. It may be but I highly doubt it. Just seen you run savox. You know alot of people are having brown outs running those servos? Might try adding a glitch buster or check your battery under load.

If your driving a four you'll sh-t when ya get a 5 on the track. I did, pulled in the pit lane so I could hoot and holla bout it. The car is badazz. Ran the car at three different tracks with two different radio systems installed not one glitch. I really wish I could get my hands on a car that REALLY has a radio issue. At this point is has been a bad servo, transponder, receiver, battery, wiring ( found chew marks on the equipment, stuff had been installed with a hammer and a vice). Dont over tighten the piviot ball that screws on to the screw for the brake rods slider. Mount the receiver to the cover with one 5-8mm wide strip of "both side tape" rite down the middle (so the receiver is not trying to brace the cover), make sure the plugs are in the well of the box. Neatly wind the wiring up in there and let it rip.
Disregard the .6mm gap in the book, unless you like frying clutch discs ( makin lots O heat). Try this .3-.4 gap, .1 end play, MSR spring 1mm to start, drill the fly weight at the dot furthest from the hole for the pin to 3.5mm. Not enuff or ya put the spring into coil bind to get what your after: drill the hole to 4mm and start over at 1mm on the spring.

Thatīs good info, thanks. I own a 4x and am looking to get a 5 but Iīm forcing myself not to due to the amount of spare parts and 4x stuff I already have. Can you do a rough estimate on how faster the 5 is compared to the 4x in terms of lap times? i.e. on a 20 sec mid speed track.

OOPS forgot. Get your self a H0855(ten in the bag) two H0867 and which ever H0181-a,b,c,d you need to make a spacer 1.5mm thick. 1.5mm puts the ball where it is with the kit stock stuff. Replace the the ball ends on the front upper arms with this stuff. It won't hurt you feelings or your wallet as bad when you wack something.
