I've just purchased the air filter but no screw to hold the top hat in the packaging. What screw can be used to hold it down? Thanks in advance.

Hello Solico and Exiger,

I was assuming the "Top Hat" as the cap that holds the Foam Filter.

But I also realise that it will need another M3x8mm Button Head screw to hold the Air Filter unit to the Fuel Tank splash guard.

Cheers..

Default Carbon Fiber Front Plate



I have two Mbx7r
Iím making them both as identical as I can and am thus switching the front plate from M2C to this CF one.

my question is am I missing a spacer or something between the plate and the servo saver assembly? The other buggy thatís built with this CF plate looks like it has something there but the manual says thereís nothing supposed to be there.

which is right? I canít take off the otherís plate at the moment because the screw is stripped and really rather not dremel it out until I need to.

Hello Solico,

If You want to use Graphite/Carbon Upper Steering Plate, You need the Aluminum spacer like the one on the Bottom picture.

Cheers..

Yep, you need a spacers. The reason it's not in the manual, is because the original plastic part goes over the steering post. It basically has a build in plastic spacer.
If you get a flat carbon plate, you need to add the spacer. Usually the spacers are bundled with the CF plate if you bought it new.

Unfortunately I bought used. Does anyone have a part number or a reference I can use to check out where I can get one of those spacers? Also whatís a good way to know if my bevel gear or ring is too worn?

Hello Solico,

The part would be E2121B - SERVO SAVER SPACER (For E2121)..

Most of the time Bevel/Ring Gear will last the lifetime of the Car when shimmed properly and greased when it is built for the first time and maintenance after that. I would say that You could take a picture of Your gear(s) and show to us here, then maybe we could give our opinion.

Cheers..
