Default MTX-3 v.s. V one RR EVO

Hey guys

I have already heard the opinion of a few but want to get an idea of what other think..

Does anyone out there own (or have owned) both the MTX-3 and the V one RR EVO ??

If one were to run these two cars, both with "perfect" set ups, will he/she be able to tell a significant difference in handling?

From what I have heard, the MTX-3 is better handling wise, but I am curious what others think.

Any insights are much appreciated.

I own both these beauties n both are in a class of it own....
1-Handling wise on the Evo its as close as to the MTX-3....only draw back frm tis Evo is the weight issue....that's why I put in Ti shafts n pillow balls to keep its weight down..
2-Durability, Evo is better...not forgetting your LHS support for the car...you wuldn't want to wait for spares...

I don't own both but I am switching to the Evolution. I drove the EVO on two ocassions, one with the stock set up and another tailored to the track I race at. I found lots of steering both times. I think on a sweeping track the EVO is better. The MTX-3 is the better all around car that can be tailored easily to any track.

I would go the MTX-3, It is so easy to work on and so easy to setup. Its not a week car its strong as you got to hit somthing very very hard to break any thing. it also looks real good its got a real low center or "GRAV" also its not a heavly car and there is a heap of ALLOY hop up parts for. I would go the MTX-3 for shore.

But then it really matters on what your LHS has for parts. Because you dont wont to be waiting around for parts. My LHS has both VONE and MTX-3 parts so im cheeering.

If you want to keep your MTX3 nice and light you don't want to be putting alloy on it .

I have both cars MTX3 and V1RR Evo.
If to compare both, in design work the MTX3 seem abit neat than V1RR Evo. The receiver and steering servo horn opening in V1RR Evo not really preferable by me.
Handling wise - is almost the same for both car only i feel V1RR Evo abit bulky. Just my opinion.

How light can you get without alloy eye candies + all the lightened parts?


Just curious

This is not true. The attached picture shows my EVO at 1695 grams with 3 Ti parts and a AAA bettery pack. This was ready to race minus fuel.

1705 with personal transponder and painted body. Paint adds between 5-7 grams with a light single coat.

Kyosho all the way with this one ... better quality IMO. Expensive, but better in my mind. I never really liked my MTX3 even though I spent a fortune to get the perfect TC "setup" .. I loved its looks, but overall I wish I didn't buy the MTX3. Just didn't like it.

Umm what's wrong with the quality of the MTX-3? Everything is beautiful to look at and fit perfectly? Very solid.

Except for the lower rear arms, and upper front arms? As I recall those don't fit perfectly. The fit is also different from the left to right arms.
