Default Front and rear bulkhead loose

Has anyone experienced loose bulkhead screws? meaning due to too many screw in and screw out and the thread is now busted on the bulkheads.

Bulkheads are still in good condition and it'll be a waste to replace them just yet.

Anyone done any salvaging procedure with this kind of problem?

I did notice my rear shock tower becoming loose so I just used a longer screw (replace the ones that are on the bottom hole of the wing mount) and put a nut on the other side of it (near the chassis brace mount).

Oops, I didnt make myself clear. My bulks heads are loose from the bottom. The 4 screws holding the bulkheads from the bottom of the chassis is now not holding them firmly.

At that point it's just something you have to replace.

yeah but that would definately affect Mugens Sales of parts

Now that you have mentioned about the sleeve I took a peek at the bulks and found the area surrounding the the screws are not big enough to drill and include a threaded sleeve in it.

maybe CA glue and talcum powder would be a remedy..........

The Mugen gear cases are really inexpensive (most of the Mugen plastic is). I wouldn't chance the repair. The weekend is just too short.

JamminTrey, run your car stock. The only worthwhile hopups I can think of is switching to Craddock or TTR hi-temp brake discs and lighter weight pivot balls for the front end. I am going to change my shocks as the Mugen ones are not hard annodised and the oil turns black pretty fast. TTR shocks fit and are very inexpensive.

Default hey guys on the MBX 5

Hi guys,

This is one of my first post. I'd say most are running the new mbx 6 now. I have the mbx 5 and can't at the moment get the 6.

Has anyone put in the dragon racing titainum drives in their mbx 5. Front and rear.
Here is the deal. I think their undersized just slightly from the bearing their going into, therefore making a little slop in the wheel on its hub. Just looking to see if anyone else has had this problem and how they may have corrected it.


Thanks much for any input

Default mbx 5 steering slop

Hey Bros.

Ive got a little slop in the steering linkages on the old muggy and was wondering if a little is acceptable in racing standards. Im new to the sport and I want to win. So just wondering if I should replace the plastic pivot ball caps to reduce slop, or if a little is acceptable.

Thanks guys,

Fred

Hi Fred,

You dug up a VERY old thread in the Electric Off-road forum. Go back to the General forums and then the Nitro Off-Road forum and there is a huge on-going MBX5/R thread and a MBX6 thread.

edit...

Here ya go Fred: http://www.rctech.net/forum/nitro-of...gen-mbx5r.html

Best regards,
