Default Brushless Conversion Set-up Sheet.

Well,

After yesterdays day of racing, I'm planning on taking my Brushless Conversion MBX6 back to a baseline set-up. My problem is I'm new to offroad, and have tried some stuff, suggestions from those who know and wild a_ _ guesses from my own mind.

I race on hard packed, mostly dry tracks with a good amount of jumps and corners, some off camber stuff. Basically good track layouts where you need a good neutral car.

If anyone and suggest a good starting point set-up sheet it would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!!!

Follow the instructions and don't use the S3 o-rings in the diffs.

I am using the upper hole on my current setup. It made the car more planted in the rear and felt like it slowed down the rear from rotating so quick. Made the car easier to drive.

I just read the MBX6-Kris Moore interview article that was in rc car magazine a few months back. Kris mentioned that a lot of drivers use 14T pinion gear versus the stock 13 T. Ny question....whats the difference or the advantage? I never quite understood gearing

a little more top end and a smoother bottom end with the 14, most if not all the Mugen guys still run the 13 at the Nitro Pit a very big track.

Wow...that was fast! Thanks for your answer. So on a more technical, motocross style smaller track would you say 14T or 13T clutch bell???

The 13, so you have more rip coming out of the turns or for short run up jumps.

Just switch to the 44 spur if you want to get more top end, Moves the engine in more towards the center of the chassis

I haven't found a place where a 14 tooth doesn't work yet.It also helped keep "MY" ass end a lot calmer.So far so good..

I use my old OS RG (good low end torque, not much top end) with a 14t bell. It sounds slow and goes fast.

What exhaust pipe and header works well with this narrow chassis? I have a Jammin JP.21 and I tried to mount a JP2 Pipe but it doesn't fit within the molded mud gaurds. Any ideas?

BTW...Saving my $$$ to get a Mugen Ninja and OS 2060.
