Hey KilRuf, have you noticed any changes in the handling of the car? If so, post up because I may pick up a set as well.

I have yet to test them as I just got them. But I will be racing Saturday on Asphalt, and I may end up racing Sunday on Carpet with Foams. I think Shooters made these as a copy of the Evo3 SE camber mounts. They may not let you shorten the camber links like the shock towers can. But they let you adjust camber link height by adding spacers under them. Just another tuning option IMO.

MO has these mounts as well. Maybe he can shed some light as to handling.....

Before I got the SD I had a TC3 (its gone now ) but before I sold it, I tried the Associated one way and it did not fit because of the outdrive bearings (they are not the same size as the SD).

Any release date announced for the MR-4TC SD CGM SPL ?

Maybe a conversion kit will follow soon ?

I didn't receive the Rayspeed conversion kit yet and Yokomo has already announced a new kit...

The plastic chassis won't be out until November or December. It is not a new kit, it is just a plastic chassis and shock towers.

I've decided to get the MR-4TC SD,, havent decided on which version yet.

anyways for those that answerd my noob questions earlier in the thread, thank you.

I have a couple more questions.

I was considering going cheap on the radio and getting the Airtronics MX3, but I'm thinking maybe just going all out and getting the KO Propo Helios. Also i was debating between a Keyence and a GT7 speed control. I want something that is reliable and easy to program. I also want a stock motor, but im not sure at all what to get.

any thoughts or suggestions?

btw, when this new version comes out, /w the plastic chassis instead of black graphite or SSG graphite, is it gonna be considered more entry level? Are plastic tub chassiss considered more for noobs?

Okay BossPlaya, as for your radio concerns, buy a good radio up front, so you don't have to worry about upgrading later. Both are good radios, get whatever fits your budget. As for the Esc's I would lean towards the Keyence more because I have noticed some GT7's are good while others are not. As for chassis, not matter level you are on, a chassis is still a chassis. It's how you tune that separates you from the rest of the pack.

Thank you Bam for the tips...

How is the plastic tub chassis different from the graphite ones though?

The plastic uses a design that makes it stonger that a flat piece of plastic, all the curves, trusses, walls, all that make the plastic tub strong enough to handle twisting and bending that happens during racing. Now graphite, it is already inherently strong, so there is no need to make a tub out of graphite, and if there was one, it would not be cheap.

When you look at that thing close up... you will see that It looks like a TC-3 and a SD had a "BABY"



lookks more up to date than the TC-3 and looks to be a bit beefier and more balanced to....BTW it"s really cheap in $$ to...I was shocked when I saw what they will be selling it for


Might have to get a SD now ..............nnnnnnnnnaaww
