Yeah mate, I've been on and off racing for a long time now, but back for good this time. You're probably right, I just like to try and get everything spot on. Racing on the 13th??

Guys I apoligise if this has already been covered but I have one more question. Are you guys running the carbon discs on the uprights? If so, do you find any benefit? I know the theory behind them but I'm actually going to try my car with them off again....

Some allumunium servo horn ( ofna style ) use plastic adaptor. Plastic adaptor for futaba, jr, ko propo, etc. The problem is the plastic adaptor. Overtime it will get some play. I settled it with epoxy glue in my case.

Default servo horn

Racers edge makes a real nice aluminum servo horn that clamps onto the servo with two bolts.They make them for all different servos.They also come in all different colors if your into that

Default MRX-5 Parts

J&S Racing has a side belt tensioner.the first batch will be avaliable next week from Brooklyn hobbies.Also with the low CG of the MRX-5 gas tank we came up with a slick little handle that mounts on the tank handle.Next all you I-Phone users,this is a devise that screws right on to the MRX spindle and with your I-Phone you can check camber and caster at the same time.On the bottom of the devise is a half moon piece that simulates a 67 MM tire.When you compress the suspension you can watch your camber and caster gain.Dan Louis came up with this Idea and I am working on these tools for other 1/8th scale cars.Attachment 699972

Nice work, thatís pretty interesting tool and parts. I like that you can see caster gain and the device can be used on either side for setting perfect camber. I want one and I would even like it for kicks and giggles...even if some racer thinks itís an over kill device. It looks like it would work more acurate than any tool out there right now...Nice work John. ÖÖ

I don't get it. The MRX-5 middle belt is way too long. Why not think about to get the right length of belt instead of getting a double belt tensioner. RC-Mushroom has already selling the right belt for MRX-5 at http://www.rc-mushroom.com/product_i...ducts_id=15962 I installed it and the tensioner set to the most top level. The original belt is useless now.

Has anyone tried flipping the tensioner and cutting just a bit the radio tray and also flipping the tensioner screw stopper i bet it will help some mm to the tension we did similar on the mtx4
