and if you want a Mugen,just wait till the G4 hits ground(or the HPI).....Mugen owners have a track history of jumping on the next big bandwagon,so they'll be plenty around on Ebay..


think I'm kidding about their "walk on water attititude"?..watch how they attack me for my comments....

See,Its OK to call other cars junk..just not theirs..


I'd get the Serpent..at least teh rear end is slop free...

Fastharry,what's with you and the mugen obsession?

Almost every one of these type of threads that comes up,i read one or more of your posts and it's usually the same old sh*t about mugen this and mugen that.Also it seems like almost every single page in the ntc3 forum also has some of your crying about the mtx3 and whether someone beat it in a race or how you need to spend a heap of cash on hopups etc etc etc etc.

Honestly man,either you are getting your a** kicked by a mtx3 every weekend or you have one and you're in denial.Whatever your sitting on,get off it cause this is getting old.If you are happy with your ntc3 then congratulations but there is no need for this childish crap to go on and on and on,either learn how to beat the mtx3 if that's what your problem is or just come out of the closet and show us some pics of your mtx3!!!!


As for the main topic;

I've got a mtx3 and an impulse pro and i was dissapointed with the 705.There just wasn't enough innovation and change for me to want to get it so i might wait for there next try at the tourer market.The mtx3 has a lot of good qualities and probably the best one of all is the parts are very cheap and easy to get.It can be run box stock,which is what i'm doing at the moment and everything goes together very well and is a low cost car to maintane.I like my Impulse pro also and if you haven't had any of the impulse cars then you might be happy with the 705 but i would take into consideration the cost of parts and availability.

On another note,the vone R EVO is coming soon and you might want to take that into consideration!

Thumbs up MTX-3 VS 705

Here at our local track the fastest guy drives a NTC3, pretty much box stock. The next two guys, one drive a MTX-3 the other a 705. The 705 has yet to finish a main yet. The car (705) from what I have seen and heard is just a nightmare to get it to work really well. The guy with the MTX-3 is running his box stock and has had no problems. At our local club race Sunday a guy from out of town came in and with a box stock MTX-3 won the a-main. That has to say something for the MTX-3 vs the 705.

Later,

Yep, aren't rumors... it's the same story as Vector/Veteq/VectorNT, after selling so many kits with the hype of a brand new car, who turns on more of the same existing, rebadged and slightly modified.

Poor Serpent customers.... you still accepting that after one year of the most hyped brand new car, you get an evolution of one car, not a revolution. Will be ashamed of still buying those brand of cars.

Let's compare to Mugen and review the Serpent case.

Mugen: The MRX-3 and after the succeful launch of the MTX-3, there are some rumours of a brand new 1/8 gas car for something in the future between 12 or 18 months after almost 2 years of existence without significant changes (only the numerous revisions of the fuel tank), not more is know about it, but for sure that will be a car that still kick bad a$$, as MRX-3 and MTX-3 were.

Serpent: When the Vector was launched, all the people were quick to swap their existing cars (Excel... mainly and under mine personal preferences was the BEST car from Serpent) for a new car like the Vector. Well, 8 (eight) months approximately, after selling innumerable Vector kits, they launch the Veteq, not a fixup for a existing car that didn't worked (thus Serpent users need to burn another 600 or 700 bucks on another 'definitive' brand new car...

Not happy with this, less than a year after, Serpent did another loop launching Vector NT, not an upgrade for their existing car (Veteq... that had problems of funky handling.... for being fair with it) and launched the Vector NT... who seemed a return to the Vector technology.

For sure that Serpent is rich, in less than 2 years they forced you to buy at least 2 cars if not 3.... all for the hype and the bucks in the wallet of their loyal customers.

Well..I drive 705 and very happy with the car. The support on Serpent 705 thred was really good!! They all will help you getting your car to win!

But..the only thing I hate about the Serpent is the Parts Pricing!! They are so damn expensive!! ...... but..... most of their parts are very strong!! you will never broke any any parts when you hit little some thing here and there and the setup geometry..wil never change on teh car.... unleass you hit some thing at a very hight speed!! Well...all the car do...but......all and all...I think 705 is one strong car.

At the same time...I help a friend of my setup his old MTX2 ...and Wow... With my serpent setup...it seem like those MTX really like it!! The car was very smooth and easyto drive. Not a bad car at all...

Also...I used to own a NTC3... Like the car alot! The fact that I don't have to warry about belt.......that was my choice!! Serpent belt cost some where between $12 to $18 ouch!! (I can just go buy a real belt for my real cars!! LOL ) Any how... NTC3 is nice! fast! and relatively easy to setup!! I get rid of it just because I hae too many cars alrady...and decided to stay with 705 because...I alrady have alot of spairs form my old Impulse.

I think...all and all...it's just depends on your $$$$ and parts avalibilty. All the cars are pritty much compatitive!! its up to you to learn to set it up properly!! oh...and the most importainly!! Don't hit any corner or any things during the race!! Then your car will be a fater car!! LOL.. I'm sure we all learned it the hardway!!
