Thanks.
The New RD one is pretty good, pin size is the same as mugen but honestly both will still break right at the joint area where the pin holder with set screw is(on the bone side) when you hit hard, sometimes it just breaks! i guess nowaday with these powerful engines and agressive clutch setting and incorrect tire size too!

Check out the fully automatic one from Integy (Eagle)

Nice piece of equipment and a fair price:

Integy truer

I'm probably going to be in the market for a truer later this year and it's hard to go past the hudy truers even though they are more expensive then the rest.

I have the Integy TrueCut truer (made by Eagle). It's not automatic, but works great for me. At the time I bought mine, the other 2 Eagle truers weren't available, but I definetly considering buying one of the new automatic Eagle truers.

Default New Blue Mugen Springs

Has anyone used the new mugen blue springs? Any comments on how they handle.? I understand that the MTX borrowed springs from the MRX and that tishis is a spring made specificaly for he MTX-3.

Lightbulb More Mugen spring questions

1.)How many of you run the rear springs instead of the front springs on the front shocks?

2.)I see that is a few people do this and I would like to know if there is any advantage over the regular front springs other than not having to screw the collar all the way down?
