Muchas gracias, es lo que haré. Cambiarlos si se me rompen. De momento compraré las transmisiones centrales de 84mm y 110mm ya que los pins están muy gastados.
Un saludo y felicidades por tu buen español.

What would I notice in handling if I change the bushings in the upper arms to the (H) position from the (L)?

i am no the best with setup but when i had the H insert in and the other side flipped the front of my car wanted to push coming off the corner when i was on throttle. I have seen it in some setups but the h didnt work good for me. I guess it probably wasnt right conditions

The H setting will allow your car to roll more, thus causing it to feel "lazy" when going into turns. The "L" position will allow less roll and make the car react quicker to steering input.

I usually run the L position, but will switch to H if traction is really low or the track has a lot of high speed, flowing turns. Your mileage may vary...

Does anyone run any downstop limiting with these?
I've been running Mugen and on the MBX6 I ran a lot of downstop limiting, reading setup sheets it says 99mm and 118mm, which seems very close to the full extension of the shock?

Any advice?

Has anyone tried the CSI pistons in their MP9's yet? I have ordered a set due to some local guys and there opinions about them. If you have tried which ones did you use and what fluid.

Thanks Chris

Not on my Mp9 but on my JQ. Bought the blue set and used 450 shock oil on them. Same set up as older shock but found that the car handled rough parts on the track better and no longer bounce as much when landing a jump hard. More plush and car felt planted.

BUT our track changes everyday and it could also be the placebo effect. But personally I just felt it made the car a little bit easier to drive.

Default Droop

That is a good starting point...I believe you will have about 2-3mm of play, for adjustment. I feel the car has great weight transfer with those settings.

I believe those are limited special edition yellow waterballoons.
Comes in a pack of 100 units for $2, but only very few are yellow, so you'll have to sift threw the bag and sort them by color

Waterballoons last about 10x longer than stock rubbers and cost infinately much less. We're talking $0.02 per unit
