Hey fellas,

Anyone have any tips on removing the rear sway bar efficiently?

Also, what are the benefits of running the discs on the uprights?

Thanks!!

Remove one tie rod/link to the sway bar, would be the quickest way to render it inoperable.

But why are you asking to do this?

I don't think he wants to take it off, I think he's looking for an easier way to change them.

​​​​​​The disks generate more down force by not letting(as much) air in through the wheels.

Actually for setting up the car. Some measurements are best done without the swaybar.

Thanks for the answer to the disk question!

Good question. It depends on the track surface and how tight the track is. Lots of hair pins?
On carpet ,I like a TON of drag brake. Go deeper into a turn.
On loose dirt,too much drag brake is sometimes just too much!
It's all about your driving style.

This is the MRX6 thread though... so I'm sure he is questioning drag brake for 1/8th nitro on road specifically. I'd like to know as well... ;-)

Hey Fellas,

So I took my car apart after a few practice days and noticed this:


The throttle servo was rubbing on the fuel tank, spaced out the servo and problem fixed. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up!

I think these may look nice on our chassis as well as on the MBX series they were designed for:

Mugen Adjustable Servo Arms (in 23 & 25 Tooth)



OPTIONAL PARTS

Hello Fellas,

So I tore my 6 down after the season. Everything was good besides the front belt. But I did notice something that has me worried, should the chassis lay perfectly flat on a flat surface? Reason I ask is because I noticed towards the middle of the chassis there is a slight raise of about 1mm. Basically right where the chassis tapers towards the edges (fuel tank, engine area). I am able to slide a piece of paper under the chassis in that spot. Is that ok? Should it lay perfectly flat? Thanks!!
