I've run a life pack in my MRX-4x for the whole season. 1450ma and have worked without any issues. I purchased 2, but probably could have done it with one.

Ran the new car at the "FORT" on Sunday. It was Great.

works very well. Check your tank. my tank was small. had to take out the spacer and put in a smaller one to get it to 125cc. With a nm battery and ko servos still had to add 40grams to the stock car.

Car is very smooth to drive . my lap times .2 quicker out of the box.
Will be racing the FORGASS race next weekend with the car, that will be the real test.

Hi Guys,

Motonica driver here soon to make a switch either to MRX5 or Kyosho, but how strong is the front end of the MRX5, i hear small mistake going off can cause DNF's we did see this from a Top Aussie driver in Amain

Curiouse to find out others in how they have made mistakes going off have they recovered or have they found themselves with front end weakness

Regards
Frankie

Its good to see that you have narrowed the selection down to two cars.

Glad to see that you have cut the "S" from the list.
