don't be surprised if this is complete BS. Propably just a story from a local hobby shop to sell the kit he has in stock.

For you kit, get some extra springs. Stock are the purple ones (black in your kit), order some lime green up front (short version) and lime green in the back (medium version). To be complete...some whites in front and back (on very slippery tracks).

Default Oil conversion, Kyosho to AE?

My LHS has several Kyosho shockoils on backorder and a different LHS around the corner is a AE-dealer and has all the different weights in stock so
Im thinking that I could temperarily switch brands.

Does anybody know what the Kyosho weights is in AE numbers?

Thanks.

Hey man, use this calculator to figure out the correct oils

http://www.offroad-cult.org/Special/...wt_convert.php

I use Associated oils in my cars [shocks and diffs] just because its half the price... and no one carries Kyosho anything locally, so I just roll with what i can get

I broke my car for the first time in the 6 gallons that I put through it on sunday. The C hub snapped at the lower king pin, I snagged a huge nail that was stickijng out a bit coming off a triple during practice before racing. Anyway, I didnt have any replacements so I got a bit creative with a MP777 c hub. It fits almost perfectly, you just need to shave off some material on the inside so it doesnt bump up against the lower arm, preventing the proper camber adjustment, then add a shim between the kingpin and the knuckle to get rid of the slop and your good to go. Well... you gotta adjust camber and toe again but then you all set. Geometry is a bit different but I didnt notice it too much, the car drove great...

So if you're ever in this situation, you'll know what to do.

BTW a 7.5 c hub will fit as well, I tried that first but it'd take a bit more time cuz the ball holding the hub to the upper arm has flanges on the 777 and mp9 so you'd have to shave off more material (theres plenty of it).

I'd like a comparison between the Xray 808 and MP9 regarding handling/performance only. I have a brand new 808, have yet to drive it though. I drove an MP9 this weekend and fell in love, simply the best handling buggy I've ever driven, period. Felt SO light and responsive, turned on a dime, braking and acceleration was incredible.

I realize this is the MP9 thread and many will be biased towards what they own, however your impartial feedback is appreciated. Thanks!
