the first big test for the 5 will be this week some of the aussie drivers have our cars and they will debut this week at our Australian Nationals, testing so far is awesome its already gone quicker then the MRX4X and it hasnt had a good run yet and it is lighting quick out of the corners with the really light drivetrain

Default MRX5 BUILD

Well the building has started and i have some feedback , take it for what its worth . The front upper arms have a camber rod now similar to the back of the 4x . We have seen on my friends ralph car during impact the plastic rod end on top of the front knuckle cracks because rod not deep enough in there . I advise if you can find a rod longer than the stock 22mm maybe 30 mm , you can have enough threads in rod end and arm . Hope that helps .
