I have been running the Accord body lately and I really like it, but if traction is low I would use the Stratus 3.0AP or the Mazda!

Good luck!!
I feel that the MSX with 2.5 mm chassis carries more speed, especially in low grip conditions. With the 3 mm the car "floats" and its difficult to get enough grip but in really high grip conditions I think maybe 3 mm would be a better choice. I now Xray is a totally different car but they always use 2 mm chassis on carpet.

You might get the feeling of having more initial traction with the thinner chassis, but I feel that I have more steering and more corner speed with the 3mm chassis with the same rear traction!!

I also tested this with the old car and 3mm was much faster!!

Did you check out your laptimes when you tested?

Anybody that saw my post earlier about the steel outdrives I made for the Tamiya Spool, they work great I ran probably 25 packs through them with no problems.

The Square RC Servo/Personal transpmount is pretty awsome. Although i believe you have to shim the mount 4mm from the servo on the MSX like i have to on mine using the old regular transponder mount.

Try Speedtech RC. The tape (I think) is the Xenon Racing stuff.

I ran my TRF415MSX last night with the gear ration 6.03. The track layout was tight and this time I feel that the car was faster. I think I am used to noisy shaft driven cars so when I switch to this car, I can't hear the noise so it feels slow. Actually, I am more consistant with this car than my EVO4.
