Another thing about springs. There are three options for springs, black, yellow and silver (kit).

T2505 Front Shock Spring (Silver): MTX6
T2506 Rear Shock Spring (Silver): MTX6
T2507 Front Shock Spring (Black): MTX6
T2508 Rear Shock Spring (Black): MTX6
T2509 Front Shock Spring (Yellow): MTX6
T2510 Rear Shock Spring (Yellow): MTX6

Which of them is softer and harder and do you know the Lbs that each of them have?

Thanks again!
Yellow are the softest, then black, and silver are the hardest.

Don't know the rates of the springs, if I have some time this week I will try to check them at work in the compression machine.

You can also calculate them by using this site:

Hello everyone.
differentials do not lose in any way, and I've redone several times.
I never replaced the gasket and the only time I had loss was the fault of too much oil.

Hey Guys/Gals running HV low profile servos have you had any trouble with the throttle/brake servo? The low torque ratings make me worry about going that way and burning out the brake servo.

Thanks

I was running savox LP servos on my 5, never had an issue, been running a the same LP servo as an 8th scale throttle servo, and it's still fine.

Try some electric tourer springs, commonly used now on 200mm, better range, better tuning, often work in high or low grip, I used TOP electric springs on my old MTX5.

Softer spring will numb the car try going stiffer.

I would look in a different direction, going very soft in springs will reduce the total amount of grip because of too much chassis roll.

Don't know what your current setup is and where you need steering but you could change damping, roll centre, diff oils or ARB's.

This is my current setup, is has a lot of steering. Almost everyone who drives my car finds it has way too much steering.



Only one thing changed, I now run 3x1.1mm holes all around with 500cst oil and the front upper wishbones in the lower position and no shims on the front upright.

normally, mugen will only publish really necessary options if it really means to be.
not like other brands, they are making profits on producing options.

There is not a lot available at the moment.
I know Mugen is working on some new parts to save some more weight.
Arrowmax has some parts like alu pulleys.

Personally I'm designing quite a lot of new parts which I will start offering soon through my new company P1-RC.
I just received my own, professional grade, 3D printer which will speed up the designing and prototyping process a lot.

If you guys have any parts you would like to see improved please let me know, if there is enough interest I can make it happen.
If it can be printed I can have a part ready within a day.
