I'd be wary of spinning up the drill too much and distorting the plastic but it sounds like a good idea if you use a low speed drill

I'll use the tried and tested way of using a knife first I think... (he says, slicing his finger off in the process )

Then if im not in a doctors surgury or hospital i'll set myself loose with the drill

hey everyone, I rearranged my 415msx for the summer and tried out some new setup.


1. switched from a futaba mini 9650 (26g) to airtronics ERG-WRX (60g)

2. moved the 5 cell batteries from align the back to the front.

3. moved the balance weight (about 25g) from the battery side's rear to battery's front(top)


handling before: the car's rear end slides a lot. extrmely respond, but easily loss control if not careful; must push out to exit the conner otherwise would spin out. !!!who said add more weight to the rear could improve traction.!!!

handling after: the car turn in a bit slower but the front end is firm to the ground, the rear don't push out to the front anymore. while within the turn the car is very predictable with it's patch whether you give it gas or brake. the exiting speed is a little downward because the rear wheel spin out a bit, but no problem at all the front wheels get more of the traction pulling straight the car, and always stay in it's path very nicely like a fwd. very forgiving style of handling now.

I am using the 26mm/30mm F/R setup, I think the bushless pulls it even better. it's a bit like my zx-10r now, shooting out like a bullet. (when the surface allowed)

MSXX MRE's rear upper deck is separation type. lighter and look better for my sense. you can aalway upgrade to the MRE's upper deck like I did. no cost more than $20

If you had asked we would have told you right from the start to put your pack at the front...

Default Rubber tire setups

Anyone have some rubber tire setups for asphalt? 13.5 brushless, Euro style track... I do have the spool, one way and diff options for the front. I really prefer to run a front diff. So the type of setup I'd like is something pretty neutral, not so much on the edge.
Thanks
