Depends on whether you want to do the full conversion or just a partial. For a full conversion, you might be better off with a new kit. Personally with a new car probably coming sometime soon I would just try some of the X parts. First thing to try would be the X bulkheads in my opinion.

Many people run R parts on their X. I liked the R front shock tower, many people run the R rear uprights.

The chassis plate is different
The bulk heads front and rear are different
The upper rear "A" arms
Rears shock bodies are different
The shock towers are different front and rear

That's all I can remember off the top of my noggin

Also front and rear uprights (will need the spacers too) and receiver pack tray. And of course, the X comes with the new 3 shoe clutch.

Most R drivers are just using the new rear upper arms with their mountings and the short rear shocks with the X shocktower. If you have these parts from the old MRX4 it will do almost the same.

The chassis is only on the batterymount differnt and so I believe it will not give a better handeling.

Brushless conversion for MRX4, no one that I know of. But man BATTERIES are for torches, vibrators and portable radio's. I am a traditionalist and I personally think these brushless conversions are the work of the DEVIL. If it's the way of the future I'll be giving the premier IC class away. Nitro motors forever. just my 2 cents worth.

Guys. I need some help. I am building up my MRX4X and am considering using my Airtronics 94357 servo for the steering.

Specs: .07sec @ 6V
120 oz/in @ 6V

Plenty fast for sure but enough torque for this car at speed when downforce on the front wheels is great??
