I runs great!
Got myself a two speed, fiber brake disc, front belt tensioner, and a high performence clutch.
Since I have installed the clutch, there is a sound coming from the spring rubing on the clutch bell. (can't get rid of it!)
I've just ordered adjustable purple shock's for it (not sure if they are any good).
I'll actually looking for the side belt tensioner.
Sounds like a great setup. I bought the Composite Adjustable Shocks, I think they are really good. They are itxactly what the Pro 4 uses, except that the Pro 4's shocks have alloy casings instead of composite.
I got my Side Belt Tensioner from this guy... It comes with all bearings needed and E-Clips to mount it.

Anyways, It's a good car and can still be raced competitvely in parking lot tracks with the right set-up. A local racer used to beat MTX-2's and Impulses every time a couple of years ago. The only drawbacks of this car is durability and reliability. You need to spend $$$ for upgrades and spare parts because stuff wears out and breaks easily and thats where the money could be better spent on a current "PRO" nitro tourer which are more durable and reliable and doesn't need upgrades.
OK, so it is $700 I am just shy err affraid to admit I put that much ca$h into this car, but I love it. Its not a Pro Racer, but its like "Sport" Racer.
I was actually thinking about getting a NTC3. But right now I think I want to get a Pro 4. It just looks like an outstanding and promising car!
I know what you mean buy how much its costs to get everything up to par with the "Pro" cars, maybe have this car I'll get a STS or something?
LOL I was too busy racing my first RS4 2 those 2 years ago!
I get my .12R SC Motor in Monday and I'll be finally be able to race it after over 2 weeks from when I got the car. I'll be sure to take some more pictures of the completed car and post the pics here.
Also, I just did my first Dying Process with RiT Dye on a Novak AM XXL Casing and it came out fantastic!!! Its totally black now and matches the car. If anyone wants to know how to dye plastic just ask. Its extremely easy on my first time doing it!!!
