I'll lend you an engine if you want; Kerry.

sourced from Australia, MMI. I got the full option list minus the titanium pivot balls, springs (which i already have) and titanium screws.

Yeah i know what you mean, i spent pretty hard to get my gear ready for the nats.

i don't think i will bling it up either stock standard. Maybe just some silver screws on the top section for highlights lol

Thank you kindly for the offer Lars, but I kept all my engines, still got a TG, Ninja (good for a retro photo shot in the 5) and a budget Nova I only just ran in before I sold the 4 (must get a fresh rod for that though now).

It's the more mundane items I lack, like I dumped all my cheap servos when I sold the 4 (5 will see a pair of new savox lp), and just more boring stuff like body shell (P37 for me), Ins Box, LiFe RX etc, got to place an order for it all soon, planned on sooner but the 5 came sooner that I expected it, and other things always get in the way as well...

Will have to remind myself to buy a new starter box LiPo as well, sold off my original pack to a new guy who was struggling with a dying Pb one Friday night...


MTX5 won't 'need' options, it's sweet spec out the box by the looks of it, will likely be under weight, some of those round weights Mugen sell to fit on those dedicated mounting holes will be nice though...

Depending on how much "option weights are I sourced some brass stock to make weights out of for cheap. http://www.mcmaster.com/#brass-alloy-rods/=dygrud

Any standard sized flat pack should work, part numbers there are almost irreverent, I'll be getting a flat LiFe pack myself, by the looks of it that is what Robert was running at the EC.

I'm actually surprised Mugen and other brands don't do a branded LiFe pack yet, I can't stand NiMh anything anymore...

Is Robert running a pressure regulator? You can see it connected right up to the fuel tank.
