Thumbs up I have a brand new MTX3 if you'd like!

Hello Shata,

I have a Brand New Standard MTX-3 / 90% put together, I began
building it for my wife and she stuck with the simplicity of the RS4Pro
for messing around in the street / track on the weekends. It just
needs the shocks built. I was about to put it up for sale on Ebay,
but if you'd like it, I'll make you a sweet deal under 300! I'll even
throw the P-Dub Bumper in with it! Ask your buds, it's a good car!

IM me if you're interested!

Terry

Car : Serpent 720 425.50$
Engine : Mega ZX .12 Legal Race Engine 199.99$
Exaust :
Radio :

Now budget wise im over already but i dont want to get a cheap shitty rtr exaust or radio so whats a good setup. Because it would be stupid to buy a expensive engine and strap a rtr muffler to it.

Currently:625.49$
Budget:900-1000$


Ps thanks for the offer on the mugen but i think i rather build one myself that way i know whats rong when something breaks. Thats another reason i REALLY dont want a rtr with a nitro cause it has more STUFF to it then a electric has.

If you new to nitro engines i wouldn't start with a mega. It;s fast but it's pretty hard to tune right. It's also very sensitive to wrong tuning
The nova based engine's are more easy too tune and can have a bit more abuse.
I got a jp stock engine and i love it. Price versus performance can't be beat.
A guy at our track has the stock and the tuned version, and he likes the stock more becauses it's really smooth on the throttle.

It works best with a 2601 nova exhaust or a mega 2602 exhaust, then finetune it with a conical header of the right size.

Are these nice? I thought stuff through a little, and was like rather then breaking a 300$ engine why not break my first engine and it only being at 80$ one.
So i got this one.

OS O.S. CV CVX 12 Pull Start
It was modified by a guy who does it for a living.

JPL (#MTP-203S) Tuned Muffler Set Tamiya TG-10R
And this basic tuned pipe for the TG-10R chassis.

1/10 GP TG10-Mk.1 Chassis Kit - Pro Racing
http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=44020

I decided to go with a mk1 because its very good priced and i own a tamyia.
This one.
http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=58172

Thats a great car btw, i modified it. Wider in the back so it sticks out of the body a little. it has as much traction as a 4wd car its crazy but i need to rebuild the rear Rear diff and get new CVD's.

Anyways hope it runs nice, ill give a update once i get my stuff. Cheers thanks for advice on brands and what not.
