I wound up working 16 hours yesterday. When I got home I had enough ambition left over to open the box. It is mostly assembled, you have to install bodymounts and swaybars, it even comes with Aluminium spring retainers and enough spare screws to build the car. First impressions of the MTS FF PRO are that is very well built. The materials seem on par with way more expensive cars. The carbon looks and feels to be very good quality. The machine work is exceptionally well done. The steering blocks and Knuckles are different then say an xray. The Steering pivot as as defined by the screw that holds the knuckle, is exactly in the centre of the CVD. They achieve a large steering angle without the need for Double cardens. The bearings are packed with grease and as such spin tight. Overall it looks great. It weighs 590g as it comes out of the box with the rims on it.
The Suspension arms are an xray type, I think you could put a complete Xray front end on it if you had double jointed axles to put in it.

Oh I piled all of my electronics on top and a body and weighed it comes in just over 1100 grams with a shorty pack, a REEDY Mach 2 21.5, a tekin RS, transponder and an airtronics 472 reciver. The body was a heavily painted Mazda 6 GX (the only one I had at the time.) I am taking the list of hardware and putting together a titanium screw kit for it So I should be a little lighter when I am done, I would like to be at 1050g if possible.

Anyone racing with 13.5, what final ratio to use?

Do you use short lipos

My car turns good on first two Laps then maybe front tyre over heat and car stuck on middle of the corner what should I try, original setup

Do you use spool?

Well I put mine on the scales, currently before the titanium screw kit I am at 1160g. with 359g on the rear wheels and 801g on the front. I think with that much front weight bias you need to run a harder front tire than you would on say a 4wd TC. I will take mine to the track on the weekend for it's first run and see what we have.

What a weird website, but if they are legitimate, this will make me get one of these over the Sakura ff. Have they told you a price on that chassis yet?
