Will a Futaba 9451 servo fit in the MRE/MSXX without any modifications?

I really appreciate the help of everyone in this forum. I feel that i am pulling out hair trying to decide which TC to get. Atleast I have it narrowed down to one of these two (leaning towards the MSXX).

Where can you get the 18T pulley? Do you need any new belts? Can you run it with the MSXX one-way and center one-way?

9451 would fit without problem. But I would suggest you get low profile servo like 9550 or KO2434 for some additional space for RX/ESC.

18T pulley? I think you mean 36T wide-pitch pulley. MSXX/MRE come with 36T width-pitch pulley with 16T mid-pulley (locked mid for MRE, 1way mid for MSXX).

I think that I am gonna stick with my 9451 since I already have it and it is a little quicker and stronger than the 9550. I was referring to the 18 tooth mid pulley that drivers were using at RR0C. Is this available?

What are the part numbers for the spool and the locked center shaft to replace the front one-way and mid one-way in the MSXX?

Hey guys,

i have a question regarding wheel offset. how would using 0 offset and +2 offset wheels affect handling of the car?

in this instance however i will keep the track width the same using thick hex hubs.

thanks

my guess is that with thicker hex hubs.. you get more stability. narrower will be less stable. also.. dont go less than a 5mm hex hub. going with a thinner hex hub, your rims might rub on the arms and steering knuckles. (5mm hubs rubs when you use tamiya rims. you have to use 5mm hex hubs + .5mm spacer so it doesnt rub.) not sure about other brands of rims.

Cpatel529

you can get the 18t mid pulley from the 501 x or from 3racing
they are sold in a set 16/17/18

As for the the chassis ...go for the MRE and leave the msxx for what it is

cheers

Anyone know where to get a manual for the MRE or MSXX? I am still trying to figure out what screw and nut sizes it uses so that I can buy the correct drivers.

here you go sir... just look for the TRF415MSXX or TRF415MSX(Marc Rheinard) at the left portion of the page and then click one of those... under the On-Road Belt-Driven Category...
