Hi Gianni,

It seem that you are not using the original front upper link. Cloud you please explain, what part you are using or post a picture?

Thanks.

Hi Gianni,
Thanks for the quick reply. I actually did the same during last summer. I use the MRX 4 link and the H0139-B Front Upright. For me as a “just for fun” driver, I could not feel any difference when driving the car. Since then I did not break anything, even in the German Winter on an indoor track, which is not really forgiving …

I also like that I now can use bigger bearings in the front upright, because they seem to last much longer.

Karsten

Default Rear tires don't fit

I am having a problem with rear tires.

I have Enneti tires and cannot fit them to my MRX5. When inserting the rear tire it doesn't reach the tip and the lever (H0279) doesn't close.

Am I the only one having this problem? Can anyone help?

Regards

Often the small things are overlooked. Check the pin in the center of the axle. Make sure it's centered and tightened with the set screw. Make sure the rim slides all the way on the axle, the tip of the axle should show. If the quick release lever does not slide up to lock the wheel in place, you may have to add some pressure. This isn't a problem with the car, but some tire manufactures rims don't always fit perfectly. As a quick fix, simply remove a little material from the center of the rim where the quick release lever rest. This should solve the problem with any tire(rim) you use. .

Thank you. I have already checked everything. Then, I guess I'll have to trim near 100 enneti rims...

Sometimes you just have to give a smack on the wheel to give that extra push.

Roelof, it would have to be a "hammer push"
The lever is like 2mm away from closing.

Did you realm the wheel a little bit, just a little bit, to make it easier to go in
