Thanks for the help to those of you who have responded. (For those who have not expressed an opinion yet.......please do Anyway, I think I've run into another small problem if I decide to purchase the non Pro Spec version of the car. Horizon hobby no longer stocks them. Anyone think this means Mugen will be discontinuing the MTX2 soon and replacing it with a new car?

There's been speculation about a new car, but nothing confirmed that I'm aware of. Try www.speedtechrc.com and see if they have the one you are after. Their prices are always good too.

One other stupid question guys.........how hard is this car to clean up after a day of racing? Is it pretty easy to get the electronics out if you need to clean the car up with some denatured alcohol?

it is quite easy to do that. just remove the upper deck where you have all your radio on it. there are only around 10 screws or less you need to remove to detached the upper deck. next is to remove the engine and you are ready to clean it. now, you can use a liquid sprayer and clean your car with alcohol. be sure you dont spray directly to the bearings as this will also make the dirt go into the bearings. for the upper deck. you may just clean it with soft cloth. remember to lube your bearing with WD40 after you treat the chassis with alcohol.

The part I hate most is removing the servo off the servo saver to take off the upper deck, because when I put it back on, the servo is never centred - moon is there a hop up out there that fixes this problem LOL
