Nope!

The wide Mugen bumper has a history, built on the MTX2 and 3 of sagging down under it's own weight. It then gives you the weirdest handling and it drives you nuts when you don't know where it's coming from. Just use the small bumper.

Huh... Some Snake parts are fine... in fact my best oil for bearings comes from 'Chez Snake'... They make some fine parts. The exhaust hanger is one of those, instead of the bulky aluminium exhaust support (give it a try... or better, wait until Oct. to the LRP race and I'll show you how 'rotten' is mine Mugen... ). This time I will not get a sunburn....

BTW: Much probably 'big boss' came with me... forewarned of the risks of coming to a week of racing.

By the way, Corse I saw you are from Spain. I am from Spain too, from Alicante, but I am in the States now. Maybe we can race someday in Madrid... . Also I would like to ask you if you know a good shop in Madrid to buy Mugen parts. Thanks.

Hehehe... better in Madrid... the old ARCA track doesn't exists now and we're on temporal place (but next year we make the 200mm EC on that track... imagine). Ever I hated Arenales del Sol track and those pesky chicane in front of the rostrum (is full of very bad intentions and sometimes, you got airborne over the chicane). Along the weird grip of the track.

Regarding good shops, you have some... Azor or the new Evolution hobbys, driven by Javier Hidalgo (Former 200mm champion). Ask for more info by PM.

Actually I have never been in the Arenales del Sol track, but a lot of people talked to me about it. Unfortunately last time I was in Alicante I couldn't bring my car, but hopefully next time I can bring it. When are going to be the EC in Madrid? Hopefully I will be around. I will also check out the shops you recommend me because I always stop in Madrid before to go to Alicante.
Thanks for the info.

Cut 3cm from the outside edge should be fine.

Normally i just spray WD4D to flush the dirt out and re-lube them with Tamiya's Fuch's bearing oil. Its a small little spray can.

Our guys here swear by it.

Thanks for the replies. Should I use blue thunder to clean the bearings? Or will that leave the blue stuff it leaves inside the engines? I used to use WD40 to clena them, but didnt know what to use to re-lube them.
