Atomik I run a Novarossi S3 and a RB Rody x12 in my RR. As V-One S said I'd probally wait a little while for the new EVO to come out. I know I'll be getting one as soon as I can get my hands on a shop that has one.

No he is right the mtx3 instructions are not to hot. But neither are the 705's.

The kyosho instructions are all very easy to read.
All 1:1 diagrams.

Very easy to read, easy to set up, the set up holds, the set up out of the book for stock needs only slight adjustment from track to track.
Very well balanced chassis.
Most of the radio gear and everything sits down the middle of the chassis.


if you want a cheaper alternative, go for the V-One S as a package, it gives u everything u need to get it going and started.
And is very much so cheaper. Seeing how it even comes with a motor. But it will only accept certain motors. And only side exhaust.
But the RR is a really good car, and the RR evo from the pics will be a very good car as well.

a few months ago, i was deciding wehter car to get, V one RR or MTX-3

then i chose the MTX-3

BEcause V one RR parts are a little bit more expensive, and its design is soon to be "outdated" soon

look at the trend, G4, R40, MTx-3, ...
and kyosho is comming out with a newer design car too, (not that these designs will actually do anything to help the handling, many would argue)

if you want to follow the trend, which may get u a higher price when u intend to sell the car in the future, then get the mtx-3.

hope this help

MTX-3 has the lowest CG of all. My club members are in a transition from RR to the Mugen MTX-3. I was driving RR last year where i cant really improve my lap times, after switching to Mugen my lap times improved considerably with a little practice.

Yes, they will work. Just get SG shaft type model. In fact any SG shaft type engine will work.

Finchy, I was leaning towards the MTX3, but I read in a user review that the instructions are very incomplete. Also, I read the V-One RR parts are not that durable. Both these reviews I got on www.nitroreview.com. This is going to be my second car and I wanted to build it instead of getting it RTR. And what radio would you recommend if I get the 705 or the MTX3 or the V-One RR.
The 705 manual may look nice in all the 3D CAD graphics but they can be misleading sometimes. Also there are no instructions there. All pictures only. If you do not have any experience in building a kit, then the 705 will be very difficult to build. You need to ask help from somebody who has built them or you can post questions at the mytsn 705 forum and have the factory people and drivers answer them.

Else, you can also ask questions in the 705 thread here For the MTX-3, I hear that the bagging of the parts may be a little confusing. Else, it should be pretty straight forward.

HI Atomik! I own a ntc3 and a 705, I'am also from Colorado. I haven't built my 705 yet but by looking at the instruction is not the best. The ntc3 instruction couldn't be any better. Let me tell you finding Serpent parts here in Colorado is slim to none. But I have friends that can help me get some. You picked the v one rr is a good choice. Where are you gogin to get it?
