Default Receive email from mugen

just asking few question through email to mugen the new info of their new chassis, one piece engine mount and new material spur;

"Hello thanks for your email. The T2407 is a 4mm chassis which is thicker than the stock one. We also released the T2715 which is a one piece motor mount. The use of both these items have made the MTX5 stiffer and will help with the possible gear stripping. Also the new version gears are a softer material which will work better.

Thanks
Mugen"

hope this help.

Thumbs up Quickest way to change the front diff?

Ok speed races here's a question,
has anyone worked out the quickest way to change the front diff.
Is it quicker to take off a side bulk head or do you need to remove all,the front end? Ie bumper etc.
Is there another way?

Then, if it is the same thickness or even if it was thicker, it won´t take away the wave movement of the main axle which is the main cause of spur problems.....check my solution with pictures in past post....you have to join main shaft supports with rear bulkhead, problems gone, and using original chassis.

Now that the season is done with nothing to do, I'd like to cut off a little weight if possible. Anyone have any tips or suggestions?
