X2, there is always the possibility of being available in different colours to suit different chassis. Lucky most chassis are black, we got that right then! (joking). Yes you mean the colour of the ally bits etc, none in orange (don't think so) so it's blue, purple, red and silver (any other colours?). Our Vtrac speed controllers were purple for quite some time. As I said, it's a possibility, not ruling that one out. We do aim to give our customers exactly what they require in all departments!!

Exactly. Not always blue is better.

For the aluminium parts on cars, yes.

raving-monkey, it's our T1-10 AMB20 personal transponder that's on top of the servo (details are on our web site).

Actually there is the Web Special Barracuda R2 that has nice bright orange anodizing
I don't think there would be a big market for them though, only 100 Cuda's were made in orange and most of them are in Japan...
Blue and purple are bound to be popular choices.

I see your point about the plugs being close to each other, although the Keyence manages it, the Keyence is also wider though.
I had a VX Pro for quite some time, always worked well and customer service certainly was good. It's nice not to be charged an arm and a leg for servicing, just the simple parts cost.

So far it does have a pretty similar look to the MTroniks Cubed, but how many ways are there to design a small rectangular box with solder tabs?

I don't see any buttons yet, will you be going with the large VX style or the small ones many other manufacturers use where you need something like a body clip to press it?

There's the other ways, and there's our way - the best way. You'd be surprised at what's inside the small rectangular boxes, and they're not all the same by any means!! Solder posts (not tabs) and there the similarity ends.

As regards buttons, all will be revealed. Innovation as always is the solution with us at MRT.

It's not a PT as you are thinking
It's compatible with AMB 20 systems
Plug it in to your receiver and then select your race number (1 to 10)

Full details in the pdf file on the web site

i haven't put adobe reader thingy on ym computer yet since i reinstalled windows.....

the idea of just selecting your race number is much better than giving your PT number.....

Hi Terry S.

I like purple chromium metal case look like the Hara Twister ESC, or include 2 diff. colour case for change by user such as Nokia Mobile.

or if you wanted to be really fussy you could have a case that changed colour in different temperatures

Since we speak about waterproof staff, what about a real water proof reciever that works with all radios???

Combined with the esc and you will have a waterproof car!

I hope the staff are waterproof, they'd find life in the UK awfully tricky if they weren't

MRT can waterproof certain recievers if you buy them new from MRT. When I used to have a 27MHz system it was incredibly useful.
You can also buy a waterproof reciever from M.Troniks, called Pagasus. It's a reciever in a rubbery block, I'm not sure if they do a 75MHz version yet though. They are 40MHz for us UK racers
