I actually saw that page, but missed the chart at the bottom that says Mugen uses linear values in cSt

Thanks

I like the kawahara 3mm chassis. Stiff as hell, but lighter than the mugen 3mm

Will the Mugen 4mm chassis work on my 4R. Are the stock chassis the same on the mtx4 and the mtx4r? Thanks in advance.

Yes, the 4mm chassis will work on your MTX-4(R). The chassis is the same as the regular MTX-4 and the MTX-4R.

MUGEN Gurus:

I have just bought me a second hand MTX4-R. While going through a clean and rebuild project I got stuck when adding the steering servo. I have the parts to add the servo but now I am having a little difficulty attaching the servo saver to the servo arm. My problem... I don't know what servo Arm to use. I am using a futaba servo.

I have cut out some of those cross horns that come with the servo, plus I had some OFNA arms from prior kits, but the length sometimes it's too long and making holes is reducing my stock.

I am sure it's a simple answer but I am stuck. Please Help. I am sure I will have more questions as I continue my rebuild.
