Check with some of the smaller hobby shops, they usually try the hardest to get the new stuff in first...

tony montana i guess i have to go to your house and drag your ass to the track huh

yesterday was pasadenas opening day and i didnt see you anywhere

we had a good turn out i was in heat #8 so there were between 70-80 racers

ended up 7th in the A-main probably the best finish for a mbx4xr

binky told me that the car kit were here in USA but they are waiting for the instruction manuals but who knows

Jason I coulnt make it my son was getting babtised. I did finally run my 9.,5 on the track didnt make out to good I think I locked my rear diff up, seemed like every once in a while the rear would just lock up besides that it is crazy fast, didnt seem like it would jump level at all either. let me know when you are going up there next.

tony montana dont worry about your car i got beat by a hyper 7 pbs over the weekend he was too damn fast he had modded the ofna 8 port that came with it and he was the only one i saw clearing the triple

take your diff apart and check it out when i rebuilt my diffs i over tightened the rear gearbox and it caused it to drag so i loosened the screws ever so slightly and it was good to go

i am racing april 19th at dougs and most likely the week after at pasadena again

jumping level is all about throttle control when i first went out on track this weekend i was pointing the nose to the sky but i learned to use less throttle and evened it right out use brakes if nose is too high and it will come right down once i learn how to do this correctly i will get much faster

So what is the news about the MBX-5?!?! I'm itchin to get one. Been running my XR at a track in a friend's backyard. Awesome! He's got K2s (yes 3 of them) and let me drive one. My XR still steers way better. Can't wait for the MBX-5.
