Just use the next hole ( underneat the upper hole). That would fit fine.

If I'm not mistaken, mine screwed in fine according to the manual. As far as glue, I used rubber cement glue.

What kind of tape do y'all use to secure the receiver battery to the plastic panel? Local hobby shop recommended using strapping tape. Any thoughts?

Thanks

Just make sure you sand the metal pads with sandpaper to rough them up prior to gluing the pads to allow the glue to make better contact.

Regarding mouting of the reciever, I just use good quality double sided tape (3M), just make sure all the surfaces are clean.

you see on the manual it shows the hole closer to the top, but my metal piece only can reach the lower hole. I looked at the exploded view and it uses the lower hole.

if the direction of 172 is not right the holes will not match up

since the kit does not come with a receiver box or cover , i strongly suggest to secure the receiver in one, just in case of impact or collision , dirt etc. i covered mine with one from an old v1r or any other aftermarket receiver box will do.

I have been using strapping tape for a couple of years now. Every few months I cut the tape and then retape it.

I have never used a cover or a receiver box on my Kyosho cars. If you really want, I believe that the cover for the MTX cars will fit. Not a real big deal though.

Thanks for the replies.

One other thing have you guys had any problems with the clearance of the steering servo. I had to shave some off of the steering arm to improve the clearance. Has this been an issue for other guys, or was I just not precise enough my measurements?

As far as receiver boxes, and ideas for a relatively cheap one. Isn't the MTX rather pricey?

Thanks again

What is not clearing on the steering servo? I believe that the manual shows to do some grinding on the steering servo horn. Is that where your issue is?

I don't think the MTX cover is too expensive. It is just a plastic cover, not a complete box. Check it out for yourself. You can probaby find the part number by downloading the MTX manual from Mugen.

I glue my battery pack to the battery tray with E600 adhesive. I have 3 battery packs and each of them are glued to a battery tray. It makes it easy to always put in a fully charged pack and have one on the charger for stand-by.

I guess I had some trouble with clearance of the stering arm itself. I shaved a little bit off and no problems. Thanks for the info on the receiver box.

Also, Stayed up to 1:00 last night and finally finished the car. I've always had a question on the break though. I know pulling the bar forward pulls the break arm forward which causes the little metal piece to push out against the backside of the break pad and pus them together. When you lay off the break/throttle servo though is there suppose to be something that actually pushes the break arm back?

Thanks
