Somewhere we all know that's the truth.
Very anxious to see if the shiny red bulkheads are the secret as mine are matt black.

For those of you who uses LiPo batteries on the MTX5.... can you please explain me where do you put the regulator?
If you can post some photos or so...
Wanna know if you put it on the left or right on the car... and which is the best place to keep it safe from fast (wet) refueling.

Thank you
and wish you to enjoy this days

Some switching regulators are very noisy(electronic noise). I would not run a regulator so close to your receiver. I done this once; with a regulator and my throttle servo would frequently shut down. It never effected my steering servo. I removed the regulator from the receiver box and never had another problem. I was running a KO Eurus with the 409 receiver and a KO servo.


Pass you soon...

Carbon chassis plates make the car lighter, can be made very strong and completely eliminate chassis tweak. But unfortunately; they reduce weight at the lowest point; where most of the weight should be located to lower CG. They also don't dissipate heat from engines like aluminium chassis plates are designed to do.

That’s why manufacturers of gas cars don’t use them; it’s not to make money from replacing bent chassis plates. Some manufacturers use little flex with very strong chassis plates that are very hard to twist; but Mugen chooses to go for heaps of flex.

Kindest regards,
Lars.

Hi

I had my MTX5 out yesterday at Sunny Coast with my brother. It has lost drive and engine just free revs, it sounds like one way bearing in 2 speed to me.... But wasn't sure what effect the diffs stripping had, can someone elaborate for me?

Thanks in advance
Andrew
