speedtech has square titanium ballstuds, thats what i use, as far as the kingpin goes i dont know of anyone making them in ti, just stick with aluminum tie rods...something is always gonna break in a crash, energy has to go somewhere... id rather my tie rods bend than risk snapping a ballstud in my aluminum uprights.

Default don't have enough clearance for servo turnbuckle

do i need slim/small servo for MSX? double check my assembly for error but there's simply not enough clearance under MSX upper deck to attach the servo turnbuckle. i've std size futaba 9000 series servo on MS; thought it would simply fit Haven't tried with sanwa vb/vr servos though. Any idea?

Wouldn't that be more the servo horn's issue rather than the servo itself?

not necesarily, usually "slim/small" servos are thinner than reg servo's therefore the output gear would sit lower in the car.

but i belive you're right in that ODAWG315 prolly doesnt have the correct servo saver

Exclamation Steering linkage issues!!!!!!

Sounds like you may have your steering linkage on wrong, if the turnbuckle from the servo saver is that hight that it hits the upper deck, then that's telling me that the steering where the ballcup connects to is way too high. Double check you steering, the instruction on the MSX conversion can be a little confusing. I know I had to look at the directions a few times to make sure I assemble the steering correctly!
Just my 2$

When i disassembled my MS, i'd left servo/servo saver/servo turnbuckle as they were. The MSX steering linkage sits lower as it should be per instruction as compared to that on MS....right?

Ima recheck the servo saver (or perhaps change/remove) and snap some pics tonite

Default Bumper for TRF415msx

Last Sunday I noticed that the factory bumper was of little use in a mod/6turn/carpet crash. I had a spare XXX-S on my pit table so I removed the BRP bumper. I was prepared to drill holes to get it to fit but it was a perfect fit! I did have to drill the extra hole that the BRP bumper uses but the body post holes are perfect for the 415.


Save the front end/ BPR Bumper

I've not had a problem with the std bumper. I have a few "square" ones cause they looked cool though.

maxoo - I also want to know. I think they are made by square, but I have no idea what part number they are. They could be an Alex Racing part too, but again, I'm not sure. If anyone knows, it'd be handy.

Maxoo, F.Alonso - I'm pretty sure there Titanium Nitride coated shafts, same as the hingepins and shock shafts that you can get for the car.
However, I'm not sure there a proper Tam part, cause if you looks closely at the picture, you can see there is a spacer between the steering knuckle, and hex hub. Says to me that the axle is from something else... so maybe the whole of the dogbone/axle assembly has been retrofitted from another car...

F.Alonso is probably right that it's an alex racing bit though, I'm sure I remember reading somewhere that the shock shafts and hingepins are manufactured by them....

HiH
