Default Mmcx vs vtd

Hiya folks,

I have a a800x Evo which I run vtd with. The car is super fun to drive, but am wondering how it compares with the mmcx. I drive on a mid traction outdoor asphalt track.

I use the stock carbon chassis currently. I find that it has a bit more steering compared to the stock topdeck, but definitely not as much as I like.

Usually about every 10 days or so but it depends on AMX production schedule and availability as well.

More weight down low would be my guess. Lower CG would make a faster more nimble car.

Faster corner speed on high traction.

Sorry for the dumb question, I am new to AMX. can you explain the steering degree. Do you mean in the radio, or is this something I can adjust on the car?

I will try the belt setup. I have mine set on the top, not sure what this affects.

Thank you for the set! I set up almost exactly per you sheet. Worked very well. Car was a lot more in control. Still loose in the back end, but I need to add some weights. I only have the stick on kind. I would need a bunch of these to get to the weight I want.

Does anyone have P03 in stock???

Is there a way to remove P03 without damaging it?

I ordered a A21S ballstuds, but don't have enough spare P03 cups to put on all the new studs. Nobody seems to have them in stock. So I either need to re-use some P03 cups, or wait to install A21S until I can get them.

edit: Found P03's at Michaels Hobby in Florida. Still curious if there is anyway to remove them without damaging.

I ordered from RCMaker in Australia, It has been a week and for some reason it is going through Germany.
I may never see them

you will get them, RcMaker is reputable, it might just take some time depending on the shipping type you chose, considering itís coming from Australia.
