you are right about that. Mine were way off. The ackerman was hitting my front upper arms, but after I adjusted the droop it was ok. So the stock setup is bouncy? What are you guys doing to correct it? I just hope there arent gonna be alot of problems with my x6. I just hope it will be a tank like the mbx5r

Muaythai, having just measured my steering turnbuckles they are 25.6mm in between ends, this gives me precisely 1 degree of toe out with 2 degrees of negative camber, verified by setup station. The upper pivotball distance between wishbone and hub aswell, is measured at 3.8mm. This should be a relatively good starting point, but fine tuning will likely be necessary

super simple guys, as per your directions the lower pillow ball( this is the one with a shoulder on it) gets one spacer on it and then screw it all the way into the lower a arm. the camber is then adjusted with the upper pillow ball.

Crap pics too big to upload.

My outdrive broke where the pin goes through. I wish mugen would use the standard(bigger) out drive shaft.

I dont recommend that one. I burned out 2 of them. The switch is garbage and needs to be changed out before use. Also its only rated for 3 amps and I think you need atleast 5 but 7 is better.
