Default STS engines

Hi Guys,

Anybody using these STS engines & inline pipe.

They are based on the MT12, I think.

STS .12 & a STS RS .12 which has been 'modified'?

Website: http://www.teamcrc.com/

Go to the online store - STS products - car, engines, pipes etc.

All the best

it is going to be a 200 mm mrx3 , low cg battery pack on lower
chassis in the middle and front drive belt on the side ...
I had a sneaky feeling that there was going to be a new car released just before the first 200mm Worlds. Remember the MRX-3 was released only a few months before last years worlds. Imagine Kenji Osaka behind the wheel.......

Hopefully, this is not a rumour like it has been for the past 2 years.

Is Osaka going to be at the Worlds? If Mugen has the appropriate gearing this time they should do very well at the Cincinatti track.

Default Breaking of Parts

Anyone here have the same problem as I do? I break either an arm or an upright almost every weekend! So much so that now I always carry spares in my field bag!
I understand that Mugen parts are made more brittle to prevent flexing or bending. Did not have so much problem with Kyosho. Very tempted to get Delrin parts but they are very costly.
Anyone have any solution, besides not crashing!?

1.) it's a very good idea to carry spares

2. Everything will brake if you hit hard enough

3. The Mugen is one of the sturdiest cars available.

Get a TC3 ad you'll start to appreciate the Mugen parts quality.

If you are breaking the original plastic parts then you will simply be "bending" the delrin parts...which is an even worse situation. Just try improving your driving first!!

As Stefan says...everything can break if you hit it hard enough!! concentrate on the "not hitting it" part!

I had the same problem for a long time because the track walls are made from wood. two weeks ago I got the large bumper and I didn't break anything since then. If you still don't have this part, it would be good to give it a try.
Good luck

You are right on the wide bumper, with the wide bumper it would probably save you from breaking upright or a-arms but the thing is all the stress are going straight to the chassis! I would rather spend less then $10 for both upright and a-arm instead of $60 for a new chassis!

yes, if you have the regular clutch, they'll work and they are cheaper.

If you have the centax, you can use serpent 15/18
