Thats quite a reasonable price for a top level kit.

But this time it doesn't come with a one way...

Actually...!! They should provide BOTH ....!!

That sucks I race rubber tire on carpet a spool will do me no good , now on top of the 4 bills I will be putting down for this car I have to buy a one-way. Tamiya should do what Hotbodies has done and add both.

Exclamation Drivetrain issues

I thought I read that the MR Edition includes a spool and a ball diff for the front which is what you need for carpet?

There area ton of drivers who never use a one-way. I am sure many would be willing to trade a one-way for a spool.

Here in the mid west we race mostly carpet and I run stock so a one-way is the only way to go. I am not complaining about the quality of the car at all, but for that price just throw in the one-way.

Hey guys, quick question regarding the stock manual set up of an MS. Ive had my MS about 1year and want to revert back to the stock set up as when first built but there are a few issues..

when it says to set the droop screws 1.5mm through the lower arm once the shocks are on the are to short to connect to the lower mounting point making the droop setting useless.

You may say to lengthen the shocks... i did but to keep ride height at the stock height by setting shock collars to 1.5mm and 2mm respectively and lengthening the shocks to fit the slop between the spring and shock cover is now way to much as the perfect amount of play was when shocks were at previous length..

so basically when you all built your car what did you do? am i missing something? as there is no set shock length or droop measurement in the manual and what the manual says wont physically work im a bit stuck. i guess i need to know what you guys did and the measurements you used to set up your car in STOCK mode.

cheers
