Has anyone used this setup in the past and was it any good?

Shame it doesn't come with Marc's thumbs as from what Ed says it's undriveable as it's got waaaayyyyy too much steering for the average driver (and for the better than average aswell).

Well 5 of us just got back from racing at Broxtowe. Weve necer been there and we finished 1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th in 19 turn. 1st and 3rd(me) for the MRE, 2nd and 4th for the Corally RDX and last was an Xray T2! LMAO! Its not an easy track as its a converted buggy track and tbh, both the tamiyas need a new chassis plate now! Does anyone know who keeps them?

Undriveables a bit extreme.... fast, yup, just bloody difficult to be consistent. However, I still have plenty of things to try. It's not been helped by having run the car more in the wet than the dry so far...

I loved it with the MS version with a spool on low(ish) grip, high speed asphault with a technical infield. I managed to completely dial out any oversteer which I'd had problems doing before when running 8 turns.

Some of us remove the double-sided tape backing from the weights and use shoe-goo adhesive to attach the weight just under the steering rack-as-close-to-centerline-without-hitting-belt as possible. Depending on what kind of weights you use, you get an extra mm or two of clearance. Ideally, I would put as much as I can under the belts near the center of the chassis.

Hello,

the Diff covers, I am running were sold by Uwe Rheinard here in Germany (maybe 2 years ago). Today they are very rare.

Hi all,

Anyone tried the TA05 one-way pulley and the TA05 front one way on the MRE??

Still looking for a way to fit a one way setup.

If you're going to use the white colour pulleys. I don't think those from the MSX will fit....

Ben -
The MSX one-ways do fit... you just need to modify the pulley for the front, and use the old style layshaft for the centre.

The TA05 front and centre won't fit, as the belt is on the other side compared to the 415.

The msx front oneway fits perfect on the mre. Just need to thin out the front pulley to make it sit nicely. I actually fitted mine without modding the front pulley...it feels tight when I slot the oneway onto the bulkheads though...havent tried running it yet but it should be fine.
