Err Ed, I have checked before buying it, and also looking at JRRobiso's picture, you can put both steerings on the MSXX...

Fair enough, I just had a quick flick through the online manual last night... and didn't see the holes in the diagrams. Hey-Ho.

I don't know why you'd want to buy this though if you got a MSXX since it already comes with it in the kit.

Only difference between the MRE 2.5mm chassis and MSXX 2mm chassis in regards to cutouts is:

1. The front bumper mount holes (MRE is 415 style and the MSXX is Evo4/5 style)
2. The MSXX has extra battery tape cutouts for 5-cell use.

They both fit 415 steering. Check out pic...MRE on left, MSXX on right with taped batts.

I noticed on your MRE it has the short arms. Does the MRE come with the short arms standard? If it doesn't - how do the short arms help / or hurt the MRE handling compared to the the standard arms?

Thanks.

The MRE does NOT come with short arms standard. I'm testing them with brushless mod. It seems to turn easier and rotate quicker, but I'm not fully comfortable yet. I need some more test days to be sure.

Hey Sohlman, can you post a pick of your MRE's top view (need some ideas with Novak GTB layout & wiring).

Thanks.

Default akerman pics

hey guys, just came off a sucessful race weekend. With the combination of the new akerman change and new parma 53mm rim tires i was able to give bakker a run for his money at our canadian challenge race. I thought i would include sum pics here so people can give it a shot. This is the single most effective change i have made since ive started running this car. Its worth the grinding!

First pic shows steering links swept back to reduce akerman

Second pic shows upclose the flipped steering rack and bulkhead material removed for clearence.

Third pic shows how we use a 414m belt instead of the narrower 415 belt to keep it from slipping during foam MOD.

If anyone is interested in my setup from this race lemme know.

Default DJ Suspension

Hello everyone.

I am putting a DJ Pro Module Suspension on my 415 and the left rear blue hub is bound up and is not swiviling smoothly as the right rear. The right rear pin screws in smoothly with no effort the the left is really hard to screw in.

Any suggestions?

-Lee
