Nils,

Yes, your may use either the Original Stock Front Damper Stay and/or the New Optional one with the New Front Bulk Heads.

The new bulkheads are intergrated with eccenters so you can adjust belt tension. The new front damper tower is designed with lower damper mounting postions (lower angle). The new rear damper tower is to be used with the new longer rear dampers (has higher angle). And I think the longer rear damper is to give the rear more responsive and smoother suspension actions. Hope this helps.

Well guys, I am back into 1/8. Just got a used mrx4 in great condition. Will have to do some reading to catch up with everybody. Christmas came early. Wife wants me to put it under the tree, but I am taking it out today for a test ride then she can wrap it up after I clean it.

Default servo

Hello, I just picked up my first 1/8th scale car. I am not new to RC, and I am a pretty good TC racer. What servo would you reccomend to use and the specs of it would be nice aswell (either KO, Futaba or Airtronics only please).

Happy Holidays

Hi Limbo75,

I use the Airtronics 94360Z on both the steering and throttle.
Been using it for quite sometime now with no problems and therefore recommend it highly.

Here are the Specs:

Weight : 2.12 oz.
Dimensions : 1.54 x 0.79 x 1.47
[email protected] : 4.8 / 6.0
Torque : 100 / 125
Speed : 0.09 / 0.07

Hope this helps.

I bought a JR digital servo for steering. It has .06 transit time and 128oz of torque. I have a standard throttle servo, but the S3003 works great. Many people at my track use std servos for throttle and do great with them.

NO prob. Before I thought of getting away with a Hi 625mG or this JR 650 that has 138oz torque @ .17transit. Nooo way. Now that I have the new JR servo in, OMG it's so fast n torque. I can't wait to drive it!

Default Damper lenght

Hi there!


I was just wondering if someone could advice on how to set the lenght of the dampers via the lower ball stud...
The manual gives no measurements. I built them to 68,5mm right now because when I screwed the ball stud stud all the way up and get it real firm against the damper shaft my front droop was limited to +2.

And a second question: The sweatspot for front and rear downstops seem to be a 0 front and 9 back. Is this setting ok for running the tires down to the rim or would I need to readjust when I set the car back to the original ride height after the tires wore down some mm?

Default Head gap

Hi there!


Could someone please advice on the head gap for a REX 221p long stroke engine?

The engine came with two aluminium shims each 0,3mm and one copper shim which is 0,1mm.
The native haed gap without any shims measures in at 0,1mm. So in total the head gap set by Novarossi is 0,8mm.
I will race 25% nitro and my two tracks are between 250m and 300m (800-1000 feet) above mean sea level.

Any thoughts?


Many thanks in advance!
