SSSSSSSSSSSHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

I don't want everyone to know....I want to see Chris' face.

But the car looks awesome built. I saw Timmy's and thats what sold me on it.

Not sure about the tuned pipe that came with it though...

Kansas racer, how much are you selling the MTX-2 for? Is it eBay bound?

I also contemplated on getting a NTC3 but my MTX-2 is sooo dialed right now i'm afraid to start all over again if I opt for the NTC3. The thing that gets me is when when I see a NTC3 roll all by itself even on a very slight grade. You could probably even move it by just blowing on it.

FREAKAH:

Email me @ [email protected] if interested in it. I am not putting it on Ebay. I want it to go to a good home...I'm gonna miss it

Craig: I am going to try and use my Dynamite starter box(I think its just like all the others). THe car is still in the box right now. Won't get a chance to start on it until at least next week...

Gonna start assembly probably this weekend. Looking at the manual, I noticed that the steering is not Ball bearing. Does anyone find this a necessary upgrade for this car? (looking for responses from people that actually have RUN the car.

Any other hopups done that I should be doing at the point of assembly?

Thanks

anyone can post the pic about their starter box ? i find that no matter what i do, ntc3 wont fit perfectly on the standard starter box (i change the orientation of the pully already .....) but u know, the fly wheel of the car is not in the centre, it is offset and near the rear end, not similar to typical shaft-drive car .... any one can give me a hint ?

I haven't run mine yet but I set up my Ofna box to see these starter box issues for myself and it looks like it will be fine. I have the bumper facing away from the handle, motors to the the handle side, using the cut out by the servo for location up front. Come to think of it I haven't checked to see that the wheel will spin the flywheel in the right direction but if it doesn't I'll just swith polarity on the motors.

I've run mine a couple of times. The only upgrade I'd make is to use the GT slipper spring on the servo saver. The stock one is too weak.
