Do you know if the universals are different length?

The ones at the hobby store had the front ones longer than the rears. With the front width set to 199mm the long CVD causes binding. The original set prior to this current batch had the front ones shorter than the rear.

So it's fair to conclude that Mugen is packaging the current batch of CVD incorrectly. A call to Mugen USA verified that Robbie is using the "rear" universals in front.

What other mistake has Mugen made? I don't know. I'm just answering this one question and there's no need for you to get so defensive. Everyone makes mistakes....lighten up!!

huh? i dont know what you are talking about dude?

lighten up? I dont work for mugen and i dont need to be defensive.

I, as a consumer, really want to know what mistake has mugen made and when you said they made a mistake, tell us why you think so.

you are making assumption that mugen made mistake is because RC uses rear CVD in front?

Default as expected, a hygrometer for RC

As expected and much long awaited, OVA has launched the Hygrometer for RC.


Will it worth a try? Well, for under $20 it may be so.

Uhm. An hygrometer is fine for doing engine setups, but like everything, you must decode what the hygrometer is saying you and how to apply it for the engine setup (not talking of carb setup).

But for 20US$ is a killer product, paid for mine oregon scientific much more than those 20US$ (some time ago).

Only measures Relative Humidity or gives too barometric pressure?

I ran this tight track last week and noticed the rear wheels chattered(hopped) on some of the tight turns(on power through the turns).Has anyone experienced this and how can I get rid of it?Thanks.

I told you the mistake. They've been packaging the longer CVD as "front". When installed it binds the front end. The one packaged as "rear" are shorter and works in the front along with the o-ring.

This wasn't always the case. The fronts were orginally shorter and were packaged as such.
