Default Penguin chasis for the Yok MR4TC?

I went to the Penguin site and noticed that they make a carbon fiber conversion for the older belt MR4TC. It looks interesting and I have an older MR4TC. Has anyone tried this mod? When assembled, it looks like it might have the same similar characterisitics as a Tamiya 415. Thoughts?

I used to race an MR4TC with a full carbon chassis/ topdeck etc. I got these from www.fibre-lyte.co.uk and the car was very good.

if u do decide to race the olde mr-4, get the heavy duty arms. forget the graphite. I sold me car to a friend that i raced with, and he broke 3 graphite arms. I think the HD ones are made of nylon.

Thanks for the tips. Actually, I have extra arms and the ones I have are the reinforced ones, but how is the carbon fiber upper and lower deck combo? What are the handling characterstics?

I ran it for a while it has a tendencey to tweak the best combo I found was to use is the stock chassis with the penguin upper.

Thanks. I just ordered the whole shabang, so I guess I watch that. Anything else I need to watch?

Just got the whole thing and, yes, the thing looks like it might tweak easy, I'll work on it and try to post later.
