oh now i see they replace the plastic bushings for the hinge pins

i thought they were for the shocks

i turned those hinge pin bushings around so they go in between the arm and the aluminum brace thus eliminating the play the arm had on the pin and since the bushing has held up much better also

The MBX5 gets little more dialed each time out, the vehicle is now 2 for 2 in wins here. It really corners and the RB motor in it is more than enough. I run KO 2144 servos in my sons. and have never had a problem in 10 years of using them..

The 421B has more top end but a more progressive power band. It has a lot smoother power than the p5 & more of it. It seemed too lack a bit of bottom end but it's still only running at 100dec cels so there's more to come yet. The p5 has better fuel economy than the 421B but were working on than. Ohh & I'm comparing it to my JP P5 too not a standard P5.

Cool Quick ?........

Can anybody tell me why I dont see the Ofna ultra gt lx 1/8th on the race tracks. I have one and its a great car, have had no trouble with it.
Why are all the race drivers using everything but the gt lx?

Thanks Dalton

that just isn't an uppper level car.. when you race competitively it just wouldn't keep up.. it's an 11-12 year old design.. I own one.. and I need to get it going again... there's nothing wrong with it.. it's just cars have came a long way since then

Unhappy

Well thanks for your time and thoughts about it. I will have to do some deep research to see if I am going to bring this gt lx up to speed, or step up to the plate and get a newer model.
