Hello

I would like some advise in regards to UPGRADING my MR-4TC SD-BLACK SPECIAL,
I have a stock version, & have been looking around & have found that there are many upgrade parts & kits avalible ie;

MR-4TC SD worlds version upgrade kits

or

LCG Conversion Kit, For the MR-4TC SD

or

Rayspeed upgrade kit

or

CGM SPECIAL upgrade kit

I would like to upgarde the car to the worlds version?
but costly, since the car was limited edition I would like to know if it is wise?

or should I look at the other kits, I would like some help & advise witch is the better one to upgrade to.

many thanks

Christian

Before shelling out some money, I think it would be a good idea to hear how the car handle, what's good about it, and what's not?

Usually, upgrading a car, wont take you to the podium. So, what's it about? Money burning in the pocket? Or dont the car drive the way you want?

no money burning pocket.

I will have to shell out to buy spares & various backup parts..

as I have seen upgrades are not offered unless the car is to be lacking, I understand that some upgrades are to suit cirtain tracks.

but when there are soo many upgrades (whole chassie upgrades not just anodised bits), there is a reason, and yes the SD is 3 or so years on in its evolution.

but looking at the price of the LCG it will have to wait for a bit.

but you eventually upgrade enough it becomes the car (LCG), at much greater expence...or you go down the wrong road with upgrades.

I just wanted to see what pople thought about the upgrades & what was the optimum upgrade...

Thanks for you concern

COLE

"quite"..."indeed!"

LCG is the best shaft driven car that I've ever used. And it's perfect for any kind of asphalt racing, or rubber tire carpet.
