Just some fyi to the guys running the msx on carpet. I had this top deck made up and it drastically improved the the chassis flex without modifying your old mid decks. Zero tweak issue and the car was definetly more stable. Since this was a Ms conversion it has the 2.5mm chassis. I love this car!

Marc uses XRay springs?

Has anybody tried this setup?...without the 4mm chassis, of course.

Yeah, alot of guys use the XRay springs for carpet.

Anyways, I guess I'll have to make my own top deck for now and test it out. I'll have to find some thick graphite somewhere. Maybe an old chassis or something around the house.....

From what I have heard the HPI Pro4 springs are the same as Alex Racing springs.

Tamiya has plans to release an aluminum front diff adjustable from the outside. It will be just like the rear diff in the R2 kit but obviously centered for the front. I am pretty sure it should be around the same time as the 4mm chassis release.

I bought a spare car that had this aluminum front diff in it. I was told someone in Germany was selling them.?.?.? I put it in my MSX...fits fine, but you must use the 42mm shafts.
