ws7 would be better than the c5, I would recomend saving some money and get the s72 and buy a 5 port p/s set that you can switch in and out depending on track conditions. That setup would be about the same price as a ws72 and it would be very dialed.

is that good advice?? the mods are fast as bejesus... but, you don't need it on 99% of the tracks.. I would have to argue that it makes you slower.. at least most drivers.. plus the cost is really high.. I spent $220 on my P5.. a mod is close to $500.. just my two cents.. do as you wish.. I'd like to have one too.. it'd be cool.. but, I wouldn't race it

best line of motor out now are the Omega Picco's. The p5 is also very good but I prefer picco's. Ace has the comp on sale for $139 wich is an incredible value, that motor rips and last forever. THe piccos are known for low end grut and screaming high end they are very smooth in the middle wich makes them very easy to drive.

I'm looking for a good baseline setup for my OFNA MBX Pro since I'll be racing it soon. I need everything needed for a descent setup (camber, caster, toe, droop, ride height, shock oil, diff oil...) All that stuff! I know it depends on what track it is, but I just need something basic since I'm new to buggies. Thanks in advance!

is that similar to the 9.5.. ?? I used to race the 9.5 and somehow got it to work extremely well... those things are heavy... but, mine was really functional... it was a smooth driving car

Yeah, it pretty much is the 9.5 but an older version. Has all or more of the same features though. Do you know the old setup you use to run? Please email me or IM me through AOL or something. If not, just post here. [email protected]

nope, it seems that i bought an on road c5 engine instead of an off road one. it has a turbo glow plug. a buddy of mine has a c5 engine but his engine is using a normal glow plug i dont know but i may be wrong have to check with the hobby shop that sold me the engine

just so you know.. turbo plugs are now legal to drive offroad... there's nothing wrong with them.. some are actually more smooth than the regular plugs.. you get a little more power.. little fuel mileage.. tuning is a little more touchy though.. but, I'm running a conical (turbo) plug this year in my 1/8.. so, you can use it.. but, that C5 is hard to control already with its wicked powerband that kicks in outa nowhere
