Barnracer - Using brakes is all a part of 8th scale racing, get used to it. To get more high speed steering, try going to 5k,10k,2k in the diffs, and about 1 degree of toe out will help with the turning radius.

Not enough clearence with the stock engine mounts, simple as that. You could get new engine mounts to raise it up, and a bigger flywheel, but then you'd have clearance issues with the flywheel/brakes.

If you wanna go all out on an engine, you can't go wrong with either a WS7-2 or a Novarossi (based) P5.

The only engine under 200 dollars I would ever consider is an OS RG. Plenty of power for smaller tracks or begginers.

the Ofna Hyper 8 port motors will put out more grunt than the RG's and come at pretty low prices too.

You'll need to find the non pullstart backplate. Its not the pullstart itself, its the pullstart backplate the rubs the motor mounts and chassis.

you might be able to get an os .12 for that

if you wanna .21 i think your going to have to come off a little more cash

i hear some of the hyper motors are good and priced fairly cheap

Greddy, if your only going to be bashing, why not get a rtr? MBX5 is way overkill if its never gonna see a race track, and its alot of maintenance just to screw around.
