Make sure you tighten all 4 caps the same amount, as that also effects rebound rate

Just wanted to post that after a bit more research I will be going with the Novarossi 41029/9901SS combo as the MBX6 is a narrow chassis vehicle where the 41021 would not be a good fit.

Default Life battery

I use the Hyperian 850 wich will easily do a 30 minute main and I have heard of 45, and a LRP 1400 which will go for over 90 minutes.

Both fit in the MBX6 without modifications.

I use plaig bearings throughout my Mugens. They are cheap but great quality!

Replace them every couple of race meets and you'll be fine!

Ok I was wondering if anyone cuts an opening in the top of the battery box so the leads can stick out for charging? Or would it be bettery to keep it covered. Thanks

i closed mine in,just moved the charge lead into the battery compartment so its only 2 screws to access.

has anybody rigged up an electronics tray with body clips instead of screws?

I soldered a charge lead to my on/off switch wires going to the battery, and ran the lead out of the gromet with the servo wires. I also put a thin bead of silicone rtv around the lids of the radio box. No more dirt in my box, and i dont have to take the lid off to charge. I do peek in there once and a while to make sure everything is ok.

If you used loctite, try putting a little heat to it before trying to loosen the set screw. Only use a dab of red loctite when reasssembling.

I have always used blue locktite on the hubs and never had any problem what so ever. The only place i use red locktite any where is on the bone pins.

Thanks fellas! It just seems so much safer for everything to be in the box. Wonder why Mugen doesn't make the room for the leads? They have the space.
