The only thing extra you will need to buy is the MSXX front bumper assembly as the nose of the carbon chassis are different. Of course you wouldn't need the bumper if you just re-used your MRE lower deck, but you will then have to tape your stick packs in...

Yes the stick-pack rear bulkhead will work with your MRE...

Just want to share my set-up form my last race with my MSXX.

the ride was stabile, but lost tracktion in the final main, due to worn tires and the track heat
the ride qualified 4th in A-main, so the set-up is very fast. would reccomend to perhaps reduce toe-out.

Note that rear upperbrace has been cut

this ride is born for asphalt.....

I just finished my car last night (MSX MRE), and I thought I would share some photos. I'll be driving it for the first time on Friday. The setup is pretty much per instructions with the exception of standard ball-nuts instead of hex-balls. Plus I've got a front one-way for the super small track we race on.

Just make sure that you've taken 1mm out of the camber link shims where you've replaced the hexheads with ball nuts.
This is because the ball nuts are 1mm taller than the hexheads, so will alter your roll centres etc.

Thanks for the tip, and I am aware. Unfortunately I was only able to lessen them by .5 due to limited parts availability.

Any recommendations for a setup on root-beer prepped asphalt parking lot? The track is very small with 5-6' wide lanes and about a 50-60' straight. No sweeping turns as it's all PVC pipe dividers.

The options I have:
Front One-way (only)
Center locked (only)
RP-24/30/36 tires
Paragon FXII

PS: Is it possible to only buy the 1mm blue spacers in quantity, or do you have to buy that pack with varying thicknesses?

In brief, I would use the locked centre for a technical track, one way for flowing tracks... hth

Default MSXX Lower Deck

Hy there!

Because the lower deck for the MSXX MRE 07 is not availble anywhere, i am thinking about to get an normal MSXX lower deck. (2mm instead of 2,5 of the original MRE07 one).

Has anyone tested both?

I am riding 9,5 BL classes. I think that the 2mm is already better for such stock classes?

What do you think about?

Greetings Blueman

One thing i forget to ask.

in the kit of the MRE 07 is the MSXX manual and a sheet with the changes of thr MRE 07 included.

on the MSXX MRE07 the shimming of the rear suspension arms is 3mm front (on the XB BLock)and 1,5mm rear (D block side).

On the MSXX manual it is the other way around.

are the holes on the lower deck different between the MSXX and the MSXX MRE07, or does it have another wheelbase?

Greetings Blueman

Although there is no hard and fast rule, my own understanding of chassis flex is:

thinner chassis: useful for outdoor,lower grip tracks.

thicker chassis: good for indoor,high grip tracks, especially with foams. this is because foams probably give a higher mechanical "bite" over rubber tyres.

The stiffer chassis gives the car more of a feeling like when you lower the roll centre, it transitions the car left/right quicker.

G'day Guys,

Just bought a MSX MRE. Very cool car! It has a one way in it at the moment, and would like to put in a spool, but CHAMP tells me that the spool is no longer available. Anyone got any ideas as to where i can get one, or perhaps a non-tamiya replacement that will fit?
