How is the drivetrain on tha car? Initial reports was it was very stiff and heavy, does it loosen up well after a couple of runs (like the capricorn drivetrain)?

How are the plastics (arms, hubs, etc) Any signs of wear, slop, cracks, etc after a few runs?
I believe the T2002 kit comes with steel gears for the front and rear diffs.

And I don't think I have heard of anyone blowing a plastic front diff yet.

As to the 'new' plastics on the diffs, it's seriously hard to tell the difference, they are designed to use .1mm smaller screws, that are 2mm longer, more than that it's hard to say, cause they look like maybe having a touch more plastic on one end, but overall it's not much.

And stiff drivetrain?, don't see it myself, mine rolls well, tiny bit stiff out the box but then it comes with urethane belts, run them loose and it will roll fine, switch to rubber and it will be even better.

Plastics in general are all great on mine after a moderate amount of meetings, no real sign of slop anywhere that would concern me.

Just wondering what is the difference between the rear bulk head from the original MTX5 and the 2012 spec MTX 5? The rear carbon, what is the 2012 spec rear upper arm mount plate different from the 2011??

thank you

Basically very little at all, they decided to create a curved edge where the carbon plate butts into the alloy, so the alloy now has a curve then rather than a right angle, and the carbon a rounded edge to suit.

+1

If you purchase the new rear alum upper bulk head pieces, you will need to dremel a soft edge on the carbon piece. No difference in holes

with all engines it might happen if not properly aligned!

the most underseen fact to strip spurs is the 2 speed shoes having too much gap vs the 2nd gear housing! among other things of course

guide tip sent guys, please post your findings on what was wrong, how did u fix it and share all the info so those with issues can also fix theirs

good luck
