Based on the picture. Looks like a new topdeck, alum airduct, one way units, reg screws, TBEvo5 foam bumper & bumper brace(??). Not sure about the foam bumper & the brace.

So is the MSXX a totally new chassis like the MRE or is it a upgrade for us MSX owners, like how there was an upgrade for MS to MSX?

It also has the TAO5 center pulleys, and the MRE rear bulkheads, EVO5 steering, the rear differential looks shiny, and the topdeck looks to have either more or less flex. Also there aren't any aluminum rear hubs (from what I can see).

Other than that its your pretty standard MSX minus the titanium screws and the front bumper. I hope they offer an upgrade kit from MSX to MSXX. I could finally have the new steering and rear bulkheads.

the rear bulkheads are the same as the msx on the mre apart from the print on them, the only diffrence is the heat sink and the asentric bearing holders for the lay shaft.

I would wait for the MSXX - I still have my MSX, didn't build the MRE - had a feeling a new car would quickly follow - I will be buying a MSXX for the 2007 Race Season.

Hopefully there will be an upgrade option, I can then evolve my TRF415MS again! Seeing as the only thing original on the whole car is the shocks!

Can anyone tell me what size o-rings I need for the Tamiya shocks?

It sounds really stupid, but of the two sets of shocks I have, only one set have the right o-rings in - presumably I must have lost some at some point . I was looking at Much More o-rings at my online model shop but the choices didn't mean a great deal to me.

I'd be very grateful if someone knows the answer so that I can get another set of shocks running without needlessly opening the ones I have!

Many thanks

3mm o-rings is what you looking for. I would recommend HYBRID Super Soft O-rings for your shocks, I hear they do a great job. You can get them from Nexus Racing (http://nexusracing.net/product_info....cd7eeeb9cd8305)

Hope that helps
