Also, I'm having problems setting up the brakes of my MP9 when I brake, there's not enough to stop the car but when I adjust the brake pads together, on neutral the car does not free move. Please help!

Try adjusting the knurled collers on the linkage by threading them more into the servo arm for fine tuning. Hope this helps

You need to adjust your brake end points on your radio if you're not getting enough overall brake. Set pads about 3 quarters of a turn looser than what the pads are then reset linkages and go from there with the radio.

Harder

(Taken from A-Main's site)
probably due to the number of turns.. that changes the way the spring feels

And that is what dictates the spring rate. My question is if lt blues are the holy grail for the majority of tracks, then going up or down a few increments would allow for needed adjustment. But why grey's and never whites?

Thanks Neesh and everyone else who helped. The linkage was not threaded into the servo arm correctly, now it correctly threaded, it brakes perfectly! Another question for you guys. What are some of the best upgrades I could do on my original MP9 to turn it into a TKi3?

I think its because most of the drivers prefer the 1.4mm springs over the 1.6mm

That's my thought as well. Perhaps the thicker gauge springs are more progressive??

So I did a 12hr stint yesterday and now finally have my kit together. One thing that is bothering me though is a loud clicking from the rear outdrive on the center diff. I don't know if the dogbone is just slightly rubbing the brake disk as it moves back and forth (since they are slightly off center) or something causing it to click. It was made louder too because my engine block was just so slightly touching the shaft. I removed the engine and ground it a bit and while it was out tried to see what was going on. If I put slight pressure on the shaft with my finger and spun the wheels I could hear it and feel it click.

The drive train is super free and free wheels no problem when I spin the wheels.

I don't think it's anything to worry about but has anyone had this problem?

Has anyone ever though about using Flexseal?? I was reading in another forum where a few people have used it and it seems more reliable and less messy than shoo goo and mesh
