Truthfully the car is heavier than other touring cars box stock. To get it lightened to say an MTX3 will cost you the price of a brand new MTX3 prospec and that's not with all the upgrades. Surely the car is great box stock and many are doing great, but it's all preference. Personally I felt the car was a little sluggish box stock, which is why the upgrades went on. So far I spent $400 including the car. Price alone equals an MTX3 kit, body, and spare glow plugs. Currently the CD3 pro is my new ride, but if possible I will try the MTX4. The 8th is still the race car to run next.

Flush with the 2-speed weights. Tighten all the way down and then 5 turns out. Make sure that theres a small gap between the weights.

The 2004 edition has all the lightened and hop up parts on it. The standard edition is heavy, but the 2004 is about the same weight as the other pro level cars.

HARK what's going on... I swithched to the .18 tz due to the fact that I let a friend of my try the WASP on his car, but he wrecked it bad and the piston broke and everything inside was a mess. he said not to worry that he was going to replace it, so he did with the tz .18. right now I'm running it rich because the torque is massive, also the temp is at 161 degrees, so that rich. Well just wanted to say hello to everyone. I'll post some pics later on

You could try a longer header or an RPM pipe to help boost the top end.

Klander-Sounds great man. Hows the traction and speed with it on the LW gears? I'm running the CD3 pro for a bit and the 8th onroad for now.

Well to tell you the truth the traction is incredible, although the torque is too much... I have to get the clutch to engage at lower rpms to get the car to handle great, other than that I only have gone through 5 car tanks of gas and the car is still rich. Temp at around 160 degrees. I liked my other engine, but I guess this will work. The speed is massive I'm using 52T and 58T spurs and 22T and 29T pinions.

The OS TZ is okay, but its a hit or miss thing on getting a good carb. It is NOT the fastest engine though, and you really don't need the fastest engine on parking lot type of racing.


Novarossi great engines
JP great engines
Mugen X12 great engine
Sirio Evo3 great engine
OS good engine

RC_greg- That goes accordingly to your track or where you plan to race. Bashing wise I ran the stock tires, which have insane traction. I think the setup was 40shore 26mm front and 37shroe 30mm rear.

I guess you are right when it comes to speed, but I got mine because all my friends have it and the price is awesome. I used to have a Wasp .12 3 port which could hang anytime with the .18tz, but for bashing and racing in Central america the engine you are allowed to use can vary from .12 to .18. If I ever go to the states to race I'll probably get another .12 3 port legal, but thanks for the remark on the .18Tz which kick ass so far on torque lol.

Nice pics HARK!! Although I noticed that the car you run know is saft driven... Isn't it a bit heavier then??? Well I guess not, you probably already put both of them on the scale lol...

RC_greg- I use the JACO nitro shoes for parking lot bashing and for the rears I use 45 shore and the front 42 shore, they are awesome in traction and last a lot!!! GOOD CHOICE...
