The capacitor on my borrowed GTX is mounted on the chassis standing up between the esc and the upper deck.

My cap is shoo gooed down between the speedo and the belt, servo tape will never hold it down, but shoo goo works great and peels right up when you need to remove it.

Where can I find a complete listing of spare parts and optional parts with part numbers for the MSX?

I know some are listed at the back of the manual, but I need a complete list.

Any ideas?

Just finished the new top deck and rear brace. Maybe these will help tighten up the car for carpet. We'll see.

Okay, here is a picture of a top deck that I am borrowing from a friend (Laurie). He built this from 3mm graphite. And he said he won't do it again! haha... At least he let me borrow it til the Snowbirds is over with... Anyway's it's just to give some of yall an idea. He used old standoffs and ground them down to the right height. You could use the MSX steering posts as the stand offs if you have any laying around. This top deck helps in taking out alot of flex.

Here is a pic of my R2 with the HPI Pro4 aluminum steering knuckles. Notice the .75mm shim ontop of the knuckle. Also the CVD is from a Pro4 axle and a RDX steel dogbone. Also using the Tamiya 4mm wheel hex with the blue .5mm axle shim. The shim just gives Jaco foams the right clearance (pictured is Parma foam). This setup works great.

Looks cool. I understand fully why you friend does not want to do it again. I made a another top deck similar to your friends (looks like mine but with the arms heading out to the posts your friends). Are you having the same problem I am with the servo saver ball end hitting the post? Even shaved the tip off.

Yes, I have shaved off the tip of the ball cup so that it would not rub against the standoff. It just barely clears. I also shaved the tops off the ball cups on top of the ballhead kingpin to clear foam tires. This also lets me take off the kingpin without popping the ball cups on and off. The servo saver you see is the Kimbrough Midsize 201.

I saw this a while back in this post and was wondering where it came from - is it designed to be a battery strap???

See attachment...
