hello,

I have original 415 msx. My upper deck is broken. My LHS only has msxx upper deck left in the store. Can I use msxx upper deck as direct replacement ?

If you have a 1050, then it is 10mm and 5mm, and so on.

The thickness (i think) is caused by the outer and inner dimension.
There should be no different types of bearings available.

I was on avidrc.com and did not see any 9x5 bearings but they did have 5x9x3. Is that the correct size then? Sorry just wanted to make sure since I already purchased 8 bearings that I can not use.

I don't think that will work, the steering system is different between the MSX and the MSXX so the steering posts are not in the same place and the holes won't match in the top deck.

unless the steering post is left unscrewed to the upperdeck. = more flex.

I know more flex = more stable or more grip. Isn't that dangerous if you don't screw the top portion of steering post ?

i thought the steering post might be bent or the upperdeck broken if you hit something hard.
but i always run my msx without those screws and nothing bad happens.

maybe somebody else here can share their experience doing this trick??

ASW- The older top decks are probably pretty hard to get hold of these days

If you know of someone who uses CAD and has access to a cutting mill, that might be an option.

Haywood- I would keep a few steering arms, wishbones and uprights to hand just in case, the usual things if you tap a board too bad. In general though, i've found Tamiya's to be pretty durable

Okay thanks people.

I already test msxx upperdeck. Yes, it can fit into msx except the holes for steering post, ie. top portion of steering post are naked.

On the MSX, the only thing holding the bell cranks down is the upper deck. I imagine you may generate more play in the steering with those upper screws missing. Still it [i]is[/] an option if you've broken your upper deck...

950 actually refers to the size of the bearing in millimeters. 950 means 9x5mm. 9mm being the outer diameter, and 5mm being the inner diameter.

Just like 1510 bearings are 15x10mm & 840 bearings are 8x4mm. The other guy was correct about the width. Very few bearings have options for width, don't worry about it until you run into multiple choices...

i should have stock that upper deck long before, i know it getting harder to get MSX 415 upper deck. ASW can you share the pic of MSXX upper deck bolt into MSX chassis.
