Big thank you to all the car was a dream to drive. Just when all was going great the front bearings on the one way seized up( left side). Maybe could be due to running the CSO metal gear set latest addition. Wonder if there are any ceramic bearing for the kit.

ACER BEARING has a kit or Extreme r/c you can buy them in 2 or 10 in a package at pretty good prices.

p.m. me and I can send you a price if your interested.


I have ran my carb in a angle and no problems yet.

Ralphie had a drastic angle in conjuction with the angle of the throttle lever causing a not so smooth bind .... When it was corrected and smooth I had to apologize to him for harassing his m11x radio equip ..... We been trying many motors and the quick in and out may have overlooked this. But solved. Hope this helps guys.

I've seen Evolva's parts and their rear body mount comes with the screws at the end of both sides which helps support the body for less movement, but why doesn't our MRX-5 come with it ?

Here is an example of the screw I am talking about, on the both ends of the rear body mounts.

any binding in the servos linkages will put a strain on the receiver and make either servo glitch . so if it is your throttle linkage it might mess up the steering . It happened to me and robbie from mugen said check my linkages and he was right soon as i moved them glitching stopped . i went to our local track and seen ralphie glitching and told him what i did and he did it and his glitching was gone . good luck the 5 is the running great now !

Hey Richie,

How are you? Glad to hear I'm still remembered I sold my MRX4R and on-road equipt early on when I heard rumors of the MRX5 and as a result unfortunately missed out on racing fuel on-road this summer. Can't wait until next season as I just purchased Steve Sohl's fuel sedan and will pick-up an MRX5 before next season. I really like the "how-to" videos Team Brooklyn has produced...very informative for your customers. I see you're up running with the big dogs in 1/8th scale....very nice. I doubt I can keep up but its going to be fun trying. You're doing a great job for customers so keep up the good work. Have a great X-Mass seliing season and I see you soon.
