I also can testify! I have done so many cart wheels with my mugen its not even funny. Last weekend was the worst it must have tumbled 20 times!! And as a cople of fellow racers ran out on the track to grab it from being hit becasue they just knew it was gonna be all broken up. The last tumble it took it landed right side up and a few revs of the gas and i drove the car perfectly fine to the pit area to check it out. They were amazed!! Needless to say I was too

I had some pretty hard hit on my MTX-2, but I havent broken a thing, let me rephrase, I only break one part after 9 months of hard hitting! , Front left upright.

I usually charge overnight. Those wall chargers are slow chargers which doesn't do much harm if left for a reasonable amount of time. I wouldn't leave charging more than a day though (24 hours)

check the output rate of your wall charger and work out exact charge time but you might like to add 10 to 20% more time to ensure fully charge.

Mr MTX

Usually whenever you switch fuels, it's a good idea to run a couple tanks through at a "break in" pace to allow the residue from the old fuel to be replaced with that of the new fuel.

dont quite understand your logic behind!!

different % of nitro fuel has the same component. i.e. same lube, same cleansing agent, same nitro, same metho......... but different %.
