What is the setup now? Going to run Futaba servos so I need to also know which is a good steering and good throttle servo.
Yeah the P5 and the 421B are the "new" mills as such like warpig said.

For futaba servos.. (good choice) grab an S9350 for steering, and throttle depends on what you want to spend. I've got an S9451 there, but you could go for something much cheaper and it'd be fine.

Smile wassup moogen racers

Hey racers,

just picked up an mbx 5 just wanted to ask for tips on building it,

what's a good basic set up for shocks, diffs, etc., and brake bias.(how much for the rears and the fronts)

any help would be greatly appreciated.

I was debating whether to get the k3 or the mbx 5. While do some research i feel comfortable going with the mugen mbx 5.

thanks racers.
aloha

oh yeah i forgot to mention that

our track is pretty tight, with hard packed and loose dirt on the top, and there is several corners which is pretty loomy and rutty.

thanks again.

...just get those Mugen optional parts, dude.

I,on the other hand, bought Ratzas parts and have been happy with the performance and durability of the car .
