Hi,

Does anybody know how to search within a specific forum i.e. MTX-2?

The search utility lets you search the Nitro Forum.

Am I missing something basic or is this a limitation?


Thanks in advance

Hmmmmm, probably about $1500 in the HPI, $1500 in the V1R, and about $1000 in gear + a MTX2 chassis which is waiting for an engine

Moon of course I wouldn't,
I'm simply saying you will get tired of paying 13 dollars US an arm for serpent parts. Not to mention all right and left parts are non interchangable so you will need to have alot of spare parts to have one of each incase of an unforseen breakage. You'll spend 500 plus for an inventory of 1 spare of each. You blow the corner off your impulse you WILL spend 60 dollars maybe 80 if you trash a bulkhead.

Remember your mugen 8 dollars for a whole set and they fit on the left and the right You could buy almost every part for your mugen except the chassis and engine for 150. you blow a corner off your mugen you might spend 20.

I'm on both sides so I know first hand. I own serpents and mugens.

I am also saying that I have so much invested in serpent spare parts that I know I will take a bath when I turn those cars over. I would like to go to an MRX3 but the investment loss to drop my Vector would be real painfull.

At's my point. All I'm telling you is to get prepared for that. $$$$$$

Food for thought, Its not a car thing except the serpent uses heavy parts and their big $$$

Sounds like ordering through inside connections or from HK (Manticore?). Foams are 1/2 price in HK versus the US also.
