Sanwa ERG-WG Digital
Speed 0.09 sec/60 (6V)
Torque 6,0 kg cm (6V)
Size 39.0x20.0x37.4mm
Weight 59g

I have had good experiences in the past with Sanwa, but am a little worried that the 6kg torque may not be enough....
get the ERG-VZ, it's almost as quick and hauls 13kg in torque

Only problem is the VZ is not digital so it won't work with my Futaba Fasst HRS 2.4Ghz system

they typically do not have mmod. you may need to try mid mugen for that.

Oh yes it would work...

You only have to set to PPM and NOT HRS...

Then you can have analog servos

I read they were having a break bathurst weekend, that's next weekend if i'm not mistaken? I've got an MBX5 thats been hopped up to pro spec but running Cam's old hyper 8 port at the moment - it still goes alright but a bit gutless down low. I think I might grab a CRF .21 if my .12 continues to impress

I just got my key for moorebank, it made breaking in my new engine so easy. Need one for livo now

Well fellas I finally decided to try onroad and beings that I'm full into Mugens, I have a new MTX4R on the way.

Looking to do a little playing around and do a little racing but mostly parking lot tracks and so on. What kind of setup would you recommend to point me in the right direction for low traction type tracks?

I'm not new to nitro and understand setups, I just never really ran any onroad other than pan cars and stuff.

Thanks in advance guys, Chad

The first time I ran my 4 I was very happy with the stock set-up and our track is also low grip. When I put on the 4R front uprights, the turn-in was even better although it tends to cause oversteer coming off the corners. A little caster adj. took care of that but this weekend i'm going to try to mess with the rear roll center a little and put the caster back into it. I think you'll be pretty happy with the stock set-up.

agreed, the stock setup is quite good. I'd probably set the front diff as a spool or get the bits to make the front geared diff for a parking lot track because they usually have lots of hairpins so you'll need good brakes. Depending on the grip you might want to move to a softer spring too, otherwis the stock fluids and everything should work a treat

get the kyosho CRF, it's the same but has a revised carby, very quick tho. If you have the option sway bar you'll have to file the metering needle to make it fit tho
