not too much, but i want my car to be "tidy" on setup, and sometimes I cant adjust my camber- track width as I wanted. For ex. I adjust my camber to 2.0 degree and drive the car a couple of tanks. ı come back to pits and its playing around 2.5-1.5

thats a lot! I have a small amount, but it's nothing like yours....just be sure if you shim, that it's not binding.

I have done it to my wet MTX and to my MRX.

In the pics Stefan has made additional holes to mount it. I have just reversed the box so that the existing holes align exactly with the holes in the top deck......

Dude it works!!!

I'm confused?? How can play in your caster adjustment, cause changes in camber??? It sounds like you have play in your pivot ball caps. If so I would replace the small black cap. Tighen the caps just until it starts to bind and back-off.

Pass you soon...

I gave the numbers as an example. Not that much, but not perfect.


sorry i forgot to write... It also has left-right movement. yea, sounds impossible, but it does. And yes Im sure its not playing from upright. I think this part's tolerances are not fine

Hmm, maybe I have a bent pin. I'll check.

Reversed the box? Does that mean it's upside down? I'm a bit confused.

No...

If you look at the box .. there is a long edge and a short edge.

On the Xray the long edge mounts along the top deck ...

On the MTX the two holes on the short edge align perfectly with the holes in the top deck.... these are the holes I have used to mount mine.

If anyone wants pics of this let me know.

the pics look nice. think b4 i hit the track for this coming season that looks like a worth while mod, especially if it bolts direct. I remember trying that with that mx8 box or whatever it was you know the ready to run 1/8 but the box was just a bit tooooooo much.

this looks perfect

Random questions incoming!!!

1. How hard do you guys set your brakes to? Im referring to that adjustment on the car on top of the throttle servo (sorry I dont know whats it called)

2. Belt tension, how much tension is needed? is stiffer better or looser? Should I aim for loose or stiff?

Thanks in advance guys..
Chris,
