What suspension mount blocks are included in the MSX kit? Also is it the 1 degree or 0 degree rear hib carriers? In the Worlds Part set what does the X on the suspension block mounts mean? Thanks

2) get stronger outdrives for my oneway diff.

3) get stronger outdrives for my rear ball diff.

what hopups are available for (2) and (3) ?
The only change required to make the car more durable in the drivetrain department, is to get rid of the White belts, and go for the std black belts or the black tech racing belts.

Outdrives front and rear, and alloy rear dog bones do not pose a problem, keeping the cvd's clean and greased with black grease will extend their life dramatically.

It was started last week. This is now after 3 races have already been run. We do pay entry fee to race. We buy parts/bodies locally, because parts are not that much over priced. It's only the kits. Anyways, don't wanna hijack the 415 thread. It basically just means I won't be running my 415 in TCS anymore and will probably run in our Nationals instead.

MSX kit comes with the o degree rear hubs.

The X series blocks are narrower than the regular. So, an XA is narrower than an A, XB narrower than B, etc. The Worlds Part set comes with a sheet to tell you whick block sets give you what + or - toe for the front and rear.

That's how many of the US distibutors are. The basic kits and parts are cheap, but the race kits are WAY over priced.

Now it all makes sense. So what blocks come in the MSX? Thanks again.

They horribly overcharge for the parts at wholesale level. I can get parts from Japan, with postage, cheaper than what I can get in Australia. I am not blaming the local hobby stores, as they are stuck with what the Australian importer charges them.
Its same down here in New Zealand.
Id love to buy stuff from my local hoby shop but its way too exspensive.
The price of cars has come down lately (cyclone here is 600nzd which is about 400-450) which is great but alot of other hings are way too exspensive.
I wouldnt beable to race if i had to buy my stuff from my local hobby shop

Eric,

I'm considering what I want to get and seeing what all parts I would need. I'm just glad I didn't get a fk05 now.

for rubber tires, teh car is pretty good out of the box. I would get a shim kit or two for adjustments. As for foam, there are a lot of parts to consider including a yok/tamiya hybred front diff, maybe a locked center pulley and a few others. point. The stock chassis flexes side-side quite a bit so I am not sure if the TRF 4mm chassis is also required for foam. I plan to run mine in rubber for as long as I can, but I do plan to run it with foams at some

Erik
