Homestead for some reason really makes me want to get better before the worlds, plus Mike said I drive like a little girl.. and that hurt my feelings plus I am pretty sensetive. I will have Swauger pitting for me at the worlds, you guys watch, LOL. Please no one tell him, we will keep this a secret.



LET'S GO HAVE FUN RACING!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi guys,

which mounting parts are you using with the MRX5 / Mugen power starter combo?
Throughout the last years we had this front center mounting tab on the Mugen starter box. With the closed chassis of the 5 it will obviously not work any longer....

Just wanted to say thanks to robert pietcsh for the help in homestead at the preworlds ! Him and his mechanic felix were very nice guys . My mrx5 was running well and learned alot from the short time we were there . The track was run with a flawless program down there . All the mrx5 ran well !

Hi everyone!

Was wondering where i can find a explanation sheet on what each of the settings on the MRX5 does and etc. I'm not talking about the general toe in and camber and etc kind of settings but the more newer adjustments.

For example, what does lowering the front upper arms do and vice versa?

If there are any experts here that are willing to share these information here also would be great.

go out to X ray and download their setup book for the NT 1 ... It has everything that you are looking for, the big version is much more indepth than the Serpent 960 book

Sounds like you might be using the wrong offset tires.

But GRP is only 1 type offset right? I didnt know that you can get difference offset in 8th scale tyres.
