No, even the 1st run kits had black springs, look at the lower suspension arms, if they have a cut out under the outdrives it is the updated kit

All the MBX6 springs are black. Look the the front lower arms. If they are flat on the bottom, its version one. If it has a bump on them to clear the ackerman ball ends, its version two. 2.3F & 2.8R swaybar also are version 2.

You might have an MBX5 or 5r then, they came with gray springs. None of the new big bore springs are any other color than black (wish they'd go back to colors though..).

Is there really much difference in the original version and the updated kit? Performance wise? I traded a guy a computer for one and it just noticed it is the first gen one. I have another kit on its way though.

Losi 32.5 is closest to Mugen 400.

Default Diff question.. seems tight

Just got done building my diffs and they seem tight. I am using the Tonys Screws Orings, Mugen diff oils. 5-5-3

They just seem so tight. I did not use the S3 orings in the diffs. Should I double gasket??

Help in a hurry.. not going to continue until I hear back from you guys...


Thanks

I have built the ones in my MBX5T Many times and they never seemed this tight.. Do that just need to be broken in? No nothcy or hard spots just stiff...

Update!

Tony's Screws now sells the GMK Supply Mobil 1 Grease. The grease comes in a reusable syringe that has a threaded cap on the end to keep the grease from leaking out. The Mobil 1 synthetic grease is ideal for diff o-rings. It's a perfect addition to the Tony's Screws S5 diff o-rings!
