Nope, it wasn't me but I'm glad you enjoyed the convo

I don't race simply because I don't have the time, but I do enjoy tinkering with the cars and I think I get more of a kick out of studying the engineering aspects and making improvements than actual driving, but that's probably cos my driving is horrendous!

Default Mugen starter box - how do you get it to fit?

Has anyone managed to get the Mugen starter box to fit? The rear of the DNX408 is quite narrow and it appears that you can't get the guide posts on the starter box to fit.

If anyone has could they send a pic.

Happy new year.

Would anyone be willing to post pics of the spacing of the servos in there buggy? I mean a picture is worth a thousand words. The last thing I would want is a new buggy that likes to eat servos. This is about the only thing that has kept me from buying this buggy.

I made a splash gaurd that attaches to the tank. It should help keep fuel off the steering servo. It should also keep the car cleaner.

Its hard to tell from the pic it follows the angle of the body nicely. I'll make a nicer one if this one works good

I do appreciate your input but 2 gallons is not that much fuel, especially if your track conditions are very mild. All I mean by that is if your track is like my home track, kind of small with not very many big jumps. Under those situations any properly setup servo will last. I currently have a set of hitec 7955's that are about 3 years old and they have been all over my region, indoors, outdoors, big tracks, small tracks, moto cross style jumps, etc and the servos just wont quite. The mbx6 has proven to be easy on servos for me.

Rc ace, that is one bad ass wrap!!
