Actually the Mrx5 is much more flexible and durable than the 966. I've had so many serpents and believe me when I say that the serpent has nothing on the mugen! I used to swear by the 966 until I picked up an mrx5! All you haters need to try the mrx5 before talking sh..! It's an unbelievable car, serpent looks like a toy next to the mrx5. Whoever bashes on the car Knows nothing about quality. Like I said, the 966 parts are nowhere near as durable as the mrx5. Try building one before talking sh.. I was just like you until I built one.

I'm working on installing the servos in my mrx5 wc and am stuck on which spacers to use, the manual seems to be no help. Is there a guide on which spacers to use with different servo brands?

Something to do with less air turbulence inside wheel fenders by blocking the air flows generated from rotating wheels.

There are just to many different servos out there to justify the time that would be spent on generating a spacer chart. Use what ever it takes so that the link between the servo arm and the steering servo saver is parallel with the center line of the chassis when the wheels are straight. Same goes for the throttle servo link. The spacers that go behind should take up as much space as they can without applying pressure to the servo case.

In short, it makes the car easier to drive. They make the car is smoother!
I wouldn't run without them.

MUGEN SEIKI MRX5-96852.jpg Here are some pics of the links in my car. Hope it helps. DRRC now you know what the extra holes in the radio deck are for. Shame on you for turning that race car into a shelf queen. Shoot me a p.m., more than happy to help.

Drew,

Thanks for the tips, makes perfect sense to me now, that's one of the places the manual is really lacking. If it made a point of having you do a temporary install on the throttle servo with a little note to make the steering link parallel, I probably would have never had an issue. Thanks for the photos and the tips, easy install from here on in.

Guys can anyone help track down a Mugen MRX5 Aluminum Upper Arm Mount (H2137)?

I know that RC-Mushroom has them in stock, I was hoping for a more local store.

Thanks.

H2137 is in stock at Mugen Racing. Your local shop should be able to get them...
