Do you have to take the top cover off to change wheel bases? It looks like it is screwed up through the bottom of the top cover.

Looks like it... Also, is there a 4mm post to positively secure the damper plates? How is it secured to the top plate? It's nice to have the three holes drilled out in the center to mount the top shock bracket but really it should only be used to mount the top shock directly, and lower the CG.

It looks like in this scenario, you need to mount the "y" piece to the top cover to keep everything form moving fore/aft if the rear screws loosen. I'm not convinced it can be considered "hassle free", if you have to remove it to make changes, but I still appreciate the innovation, and a different line of thinking than Ive seen with the movable rear posts.

WTH looks like my pn disk damper and top shock in red:eek::confused:

Are you guys going to be crying at them when they make round black tires to?
You keep forgetting that you are all leeching of a brand who actually created the cars called Kyosho. There are other brands who also make disk dampers. There are other brands that also make dual top springs.
Get over it.

Let's end that discussion here please. If you have further comments please use pm or email.

I agree in that removal of the cover isn't exactly hassle free but still easy enough to do. There are some sloppy milling corners as well.

Meh... looks like one good hit and the thing will shift.

I have to do this... sorry Ray! ;)

If I hit my car that good - the last thing I would be worrying for is the DPS shift :D

looks like it is more trouble than its worth.... why is there a slide, and why not tap the holes. doesn't look reliable.

It appears to me that the piece is more for utility than adjustability. Seems like you could use any DPS in any location needed. A nice option if you break or strip a mounting point off the stock top cover.

the reflex top cover is more user friendly... as in same in stock but metal as well.

It looks interesting. Might be able to fine tune the damper in any position you need it. Probably just reverse the locknuts with the shouldered end going into the damper plate holes and would secure it better. And thanks for stopping the bashing ahead of time Ray. I feel sorry for the person who made that post asking about the ripoff parts in that thread he started and everyone bashed him for doing so. And it looked like he was new to the hobby and hopefully that didn't make him get out of it. And from what I can tell they didn't rip this part off so they are atleast trying. But I do have to agree it looks a little difficult to have to tune it and with gaps and extra holes dirt and debris could possibly get to the servo gears.

You are correct. However the Reflex piece lacks the utility of being able to mount say a 94/98mm DPS in the 102mm position. Or vice versa. As I said before. One of these in your tool box could be used as an emergency replacement for a broken or damaged top cover.

Agree with you there. I have a reflex top that I keep for when the stock cover breaks. Plus I do notice that the stock covers do flex quite a bit. I'm going to order a couple more to go with my other mr03's when they break.
