if your running hpi hubs i dont know bearing size, but if your rinning tamiya lwt suspension which is waht you were looking for they are 5x9 bearings.

Well.... my MSX is no longer tweaked or whatever the problem was, not entirely sure. I did a few things, slightly unscrewed each screw and let the chassis relax overnight, put on some tyres that had only been scrubbed in. Then I charged a pack, went down to the track and put in one run then I had to go to a rehearsal so it was a race and run trick. The main thing though is that the car was consistent left to right now and it just needs setup work.

I found that the car had quite a lot of understeer through most of the corners and then would really snap oversteer when you start to get on the gas. The car just needs setup work but I think it should be a very good car.

Keith asked what bearings to use for the HPI hubs. So 5x10 is right.
If he wants using the HPI hubs the 5x9 donīt work. And the HPI hubs are used by some people on the 415MS/EVO4 lightweight suspension.

thanks.
Maybe depends if you want running rubber or foam tires. I think for rubber both will work at least you could see both here. For foams the 3mm chassis is the way to go as itīs much stiffer. On the suspension I just know Marc used the LW suspension in Las Vegas.

I did not get a shirt with my MS upgrade kit too. Can someone tell me what the shirt looks like or can you post a picture so I can see what I missed out on? I read that it is small but my wife would have loved it, haha.

It's not THAT small. People have been making it out as if its like an XS or a size 8 for womens!

Truth is, its a XL but a Japanese XL, so more like a Medium in size.

Same as that except its black and not blue, and of course no sponsor decals stuck to the t-shirt too.
