I hope to try them this weekend in my hometrack, but here in Italy it's not very hot (about 10-11° Celsius) so i'm not sure they will work best.

I tryed new arms on saturday in Fiorano.... It was not so hot (11-13°C), but little windy, track was quite cold and the grip was low, so not the perfect condition to try hard arms... But with the usual setting and without any additive i felt the car more stable during on throttle turn in, but less slippery during corner exit (maybe due to grip level of track...). I also noticed an increased rotation in tight hairpins... Laptimes were good, not far from my best lap achieved during races when grip is very much better than saturday.
I'm confident they will work better when traction and temperature raise, but for now maybe the old arms are "better", not for absolute laptime but for the greater confidence they give.

Thanks for the info. I believe Mrx6 will be released sometime this year. I got that info from a good source. But until then I will run the new arms and make any adjustments necessary.

Hey guys, i'm sorry if this has been discussed already but what supplier do you guys use for your mrx5 parts? the yellow clutch shoe has been out of stock for a couple weeks now on amain and i need one here soon. Also, RC-mushroom is the only place I can find different thickness rear anti-roll bars. Anybody able to get everything from just one place? and preferably in the US?

We still back Mugen on and off-road. The H0779 was on BO from Mugen for our last two orders but I still have one left.

Rear Sway Bars.

You might also check Nitro House as they have supported Mugen

Hi i suggest you to try also serpent's yellow clutch shoe, it will last longer and perform better during runtime. I used it for the last season and i was very happy about it. you can fit it almost perfectly, you have just to enlarge toward the external the holes until it will slide smoothly. Fot the rear antiroll bar, i always use the 3.0mm thickness because IMHO with smaller bars the car becomes too much nervous in corner entry and push during mid corner. I prefer using different springs-oil-roll center if i need more rear grip.
