looks like the way his steering links are set up, it hits the suspension block. so the block was grinded down so it doesnt hit.

the upside down block is at a narrower suspension block. maybe an XA, XB, XC or XD. those can be flipped upside down along with a 3mm spacer to create a bridge block.

If you want to try, buy the kawada servo saver. that is the best. they come with lock pins which shear off if you impact. up to that point you have direct servo control after that you have normal servo saver

I raced a season with the sigma2 and loved it. after I got the msx that was the first upgrade I did. which reminds me I need to get an extra one

Yep I have a rain setup: don't change anything, there is plenty of grip in the rain. If the track's drying up though you might want to go softer on springs.

Hello dude,

Over here in belgium there is allot of rain...maybe i can help u?

This is what i do to get some traction in the rain...:

-Put Pitshumizu D20 Tires on ur car (pre-glued from LRP-Nosram)they are
awesome in wet conditions!
-Change ur rideheight to 6 or 6.5mm front and rear thats beceause the water can pass under your chassis.
-Use ski-wax on your tires if its allowed in your country?
-Use blue-yellow tamiya springs or the HPI-HB standard gold-silver springs...
-1.5° camber 3°toe-in on the rear
-40WT oil around the car with 3 holes. No red sponges in dampers.
-I dont change the droop im always driving 4rear 5front measured with AE droop gauge.
-Very important use spool!
-Put ur esc power program to smooth when ur running MOD when running stock put it on full power...

Thats al i can say...oow something important, just take ur time when packing ur electronics.Heres my rain car for next weekend(i got my rheinard packed in for the rain and my MSXX for the dry conditions wit the LRP BL 4.5)

hi there MRE owners:

just get my stuff from champ, basically front diff and spool and direct spur assembly. Please look at the MRE manual attachment and answer the following question, please:

shouldn't be between the e-clip and the BG9 (once you put BG11 in place) a spacer?? the TA05 have one there, don't know the MRE should have one....

thanks!!
