the 415XX is NOT a replacement for the MRE. it is a cheaper version that does not include the same hop ups as the MRE

OK, then what is the difference between the MSX and the MSXX?

Thanks for the info guys. I'm interested in purchasing a Tamiya sedan so I can take advantage of the free practice at the Tamiya track in preparation for the Reedy Race.

Although, I've never owned a Tamiya before and I don't have too much knowlodge about their current models.

Although, I do know that most touring sedan mfg's usually put a new car out about every 12 months.

Furthermore, the "MRE" is a upgraded version of a car thats been out for more than 12 months. I just want to make sure that I buy a car thats going to be the current, latest and greatest for 2007 and not become obsolete in the next few months. Thanks, Chris

You'll be fine with the MRE, and soon the MSXX.

Grap that MRE....There won't be any MRE on production anymore...

Another difference between the MRE & the MSXX is the MSXX has the alu airduct thats 'missing' from the MRE...

Default MRe Setup

Hi, I just built my MRE kit and went out to test it. It has heaps of steering, you wouldnt think it uses a spool.

Only thing is, on the stock setting the rear breaks traction out of corners, I have tried the DJ Pro suspension and it made a huge difference coming out the corner but loose when turning into a corner. Does anyone have any suggestions? Everything is stock setup apart from the DJ Pro suspension

thanks

Check your tweak, the slightest twist in chassis will break the car loose and make sure your preload is adjust correctly. Stock set up mines stick like glue.
