MTX2 is smooth on drive tran. very quick cornering but you need more concentration on driving. V1RR is very grippy and you can drive it like you steal it but cornering is not as good as MTX2.

Only problem I can see is that a 5 tooth spread may drop you out of your powerband on the 2nd gear shift depending on engine type.
I am running RBX12 3 port turbo on my car.
If i choose only to change the pinion from 16T to 15T without changing the 1st spur, i would expect loss of powerband?

So, the best is to change the 1st Spur gear as well? SHould i increase to 49T or reduce to 47T?
please advise...
cheers

Pretty cool to see 200mm class with all those non-sedan bodies - I wish we had a class like that over here in the states.
The blackened stuff on the track is an accumlation of nitro from the numerous cars running on it. Btw, that was a nasty T-bone overtaking move done by Manticore on the first corner.
On purpose, Manti?

Of all the commercially available modifieds, Mspeed would be the best. It is a piece of art itself and you cant bear to use it. Some of the cosmetic mods are anodized black crankcase, anodized fuel nipple, nice big heatsink and can u believe it? Mspeed's signature on both the sleeve and conrod.
If that is not all, the sleeve transfer cases and crankshafts are brillantly cut and polished, carbs opened up and a nicely done up backplate.

It is very costly because it is hand-modified, unlike a JP which i believe suffers in quality due to mass production. You would know the difference if you look at the crankshaft of a Mspeed and JP.

I have never seen a M-Speed going but I have heard that they are nothing special over any other modified engine. Just really expensive.
Hey AMG jason hardly ever checks his email. He's very busy and usually booked up apparently. He relies on this other guy to get in contact with him for internet stuff. His email is [email protected].
You send that guy an email he'll hook up with jason for you ASAP. FYI

Wise man once told me it is the way the tyre accepts heat and maintains heat.
