Does the metal blade grip needs to be cut 5mm like the plastic one?

Uh What 5mm cut in the plastic grips??

I've just built my MT and haven't done any cutting....

What's it for and where do you cut...?

I dont know if the new kits come with the new style of blade grips or not but the original kits had a weak arm on the grip that the ball went into.it was long and thin and would flex enough to cause tracking issues with alot of blades out there. They reinforced the arm on the grips in the new style and they look more like the R50 grip . The shortening of the arm on the grip was providing a fix for the tracking problem by shortening the post it allowed the post to flex less and provide better tracking results.
Hope this helps to clear things up

Ah, I understand now. I do have a tracking issue, and was considering metal grips, but I'll compare the plastic grips I have with my R50.

How long are the arms on the new style and old style MT grip?

the grips posts are the same size just the new grips have a reinforced post with 3 ribs on it like the R50 grips have instead of just a round post.
If I had a decent digi camera I would take a pic of each for you to use for reference.

Thanks, your info is useful, I will have a look at my grips and if they don't have the extra strengthening, then I'll either order some new parts, or shorten the ones I have, I guess 5mm doesn't alter the head geometry too much.
