I'd say it depends on how many tracks you plan on racing at. If you're not traveling and only racing at one track, it's not worth it. If you plan on traveling and racing at a few different tracks, it is nice for making adjustments on the fly. It takes one second to adjust that and it's a little harder to change wire thickness. I know it's doesn't take too long but the blade will give you more adjustability and it is a little faster.

My stripping problem is kinda fixed. Managed to qualifiy 2nd and finish the mains in 5th due to wrong tire selection, but that's a different story.

What i have done was changed to the new 2-speed (with the bigger balls ) and new spurs.

I heard the NT1s used to have this problem, that was due to the 2speed having not disengaging fast enough. They fixed it by changing the springs in the 2speed. SO, i decided to check the 2speed on my mugen. so far it works for me.

I say if you have the spare cash. Then again, it doesnt have to be how many tracks you plan to race on. I would say whether will it help to improve your times and go faster even at the same track

In the manual and all the setups that some guys posted on the forum the rebound stop is posted in milimeters.
Is this measured with the setup gauges at position number 2 or is it measured by measuring how far down the arms will drop from ride height when lift the car?

Just drill and pin them, that way if you need the one-way again is only a matter of pulling the pins out

I can easily spend the 40.00, but would rather send it on something like foams or other breakable parts. One thing I have always struggled with my mugen on road cars is with the steering servo. I always, always have trouble with the servo horn hitting the servo case when turning the wheel. I have tried triming the servo horn, spacing the servo nothing seems to work. With the servo out of the car it has tons of steering travel, with it in and the radio on and turning the wheels, I have half the steering travel. Any suggestions?

Something is up here! When the servo and it's trim are set at neutral your horn should be angled one spline toward the front of the car. You should easily "bottom out" on the non-threaded area of the pivot balls before this happens.
