I think the only problem with Capricorn is parts availability. No need to change cars, I see you doing very well with the X..

I reached Mugen within this concern the other day along with seemed to be told there's no brand-new vehicle or maybe update currently.

That's a good run for composite diffs, that's also the reason why I went back to plastic in the front

Yes passion they have been out for a while, good eyes though. You should definitely get them especially for the rear diff

I just checked and the website is gone/down, you could email them though as that was the only way to order it anyway.

No idea if they still have it, to be honest I thought about it, but it was a lot of money, like $210 US when I asked, plus post, hard to justify when I already slap full nitro foams on my electric car and get the same result.

I recently switched from a TOP Photon EX, to a Xray T4, I like the Xray that much I really want the new T4 2014, the build quality and durability on them is outstanding.

We created a electric class at our club which runs full sized nitro foams some time back, an electric 190mm chassis with 26/30mm foams is quite awesome to drive, about the only issues are usually requiring wheel spacers to clear lower shock mounts and stop any bad rubbing issues.

Go with a Tamiya. They have the 418 coming out soon.

The t4 seemed like the obvious choice, but everyone has one and I like to be different. Sometimes there are advantages in being different, and this is why I kept my mtx5. I did have my eye on the tamiya though. What about yokomo? Sorry guys if I got off the mtx5 topic. Thanks in advance!!! Hey Greg!
