Thanks to everyone.
You can also check with www.nitrohouse.com for MTX4/4R parts. I have ordered from them several times and have never been disappointed. You can also check with www.aps-racing.net. They have a decent selection of 3-Racing stuff for the car, including the Derlin 0.8 pitch gears.

Selling my mugen mtx-4r, I also have a shi ton of extra parts for it. Let me know guys. This is a sad sale for sure. I wanted to keep this car so when I could I could get back into racing this one and only specific vehicle. Its so well done its nutty. Im still trying to locate a setup or mod post on what Ive done as I cant clearly remember. But ive got a one way spool on the front , carbon amb transponder holder , titanium all over , ball joints , turnbuckles , screws , all the upgrade parts , lightweight shafts , 3racing 4mm chassis which I really think was an amazing part on their behalf and a ton of 3racing and skyline parts still in the package. If your interested let me know. Here is the thread on it in the for sale.

6.6 Volt would be LiFe not LiPo, and yes you can use those without regulator.

I ran LiFe the entire season and they are great.

You should use charger with LiFe program and use with balancer.

Nice and cheap is imax B6 or turnigy A6 or something similar
