Bukil, I don't have the hudy system, only the Yokomo gagues.

As for running at club, I raced last Sunday, first time in 6 months as been doing buggies, didn't touch the shocks, reset all the suspension to where it should be (stock suspension blocks) and in 19t, racing against someone who isn't a slouch and has been running 19t all summer, I stuck 1 1/2 laps on him in qualifying and 2 in the final before his motor blew trying to catch up.

Did you use the stock setup (not just the suspension blocks)? If not, care to share your setup ?

Build it exactly to the manual and it WILL kick butt. It will amaze you how well the box stock setup is!

We make them wonder why they paid so damn much for their "well established chassis".

the special edition blue shocks are the standard shocks both of the EVO-5, the MSX and the MSX-MR and yes they are fluorine coated too aside from that they are limited edition items so i think they will only produce limited quantities

I race club stock 27 turn motors and not sure which motor to use. It's a small indoor tight track so something with some punch would be good. I have a C027 in my TA04 and I'll buy another motor later. Which stock motor is going to help me out? What gearing will I be looking at? I have the stock spur and pinion. I have the 64 pitch for my TA04 so if I could get the same pitch for the 05 that would save me some money. Thanks for any help you give.

Buy the same motor , it's the best stock roar approved motor on the market right now. Just gear the same as your ta04 and if you need more punch gear down a tooth or if you need more speed gear up a tooth until your happy with the speed. Remember corner sped is everything "not top speed". Hope this helps.

They are all fluorine coated - it is the cylinder bore that has the coating. The special blue edition has an adonised aluminium adjuster instead of the black plastic one of 53571, and the 49293/49294 blue/red variety.
