Yeap, not only that, the G4s are they used are probably souped up and costs 3 times more than the 710s (or 705s for that matter!)

Have a nice day!!!!
Right on mate! And Brisbane has some great tracks too ...

Zizu, sorry for poking at you but your original statement was a little shallow and certainly done in the wrong forum.

Seriously, compare apples to apples next time ...

Also,

How often would you clean the bearings? After every meet?

Rob, I'll try the 1682 oil. But then it's not available yet. At least here...

I know the guys going to Winternats (ammdrew and fmolzer) are going to be running 3 port NovaMax engines. I'm not sure of the pipe though but I thought fmolzer mentioned it as being the new Novamega TP06.

As for me, I'm currently running mine with a 5 port Novamega MS engine and an outlaw 7 mm Shark inline pipe. Look at the pics of the car I posted. I notice that I needed to run it richer on the HSN. The engine revs crazy and the low end torque is good with the long manifold.
Thanks D. Our racing scene here doesn't limit us on engines so legal or non-legal ones are fine. Is your 5 port the 7105TMS one ?

Rumors has said Mugen will release the newer Mtx next year.. probably on spring.

All cars basically is the same, good one will be a good balance car which you could easly judge by laying them all together and see which one will be more balance for you and why? Durability will come next for judgement (for me at least). Do remember, balance is in close relathionship or equal to weight. A car with engine mounted will have different weight as also a car with `fuel` loaded or unloaded. Sure, aside from which one you think is a better balance one, the most important is will you be able to easly get parts for it?

Conform they are different in height (by comparing with gold fingers car also) with correct placement for front spacers. It is the back one, mid bracket, that sits lower. Try to measure by caliper from chassis to upper deck, middle bracket side, and front steering servo side. Actually, if you raise the mid bracket one by 0.95-1mm, you could actually milling down the chassis right below throtle servo by 1mm (I guess) to have the servo mount under the top deck for higher self confindence in gravity

Another thing, Serpent shocks are way to advance for me... I wish they could have design the conventional one from the ground for such a user like me.

What is so advance about it? Hard to build? You should have built the ones that come with the Impulse Streetspec / Impulse PRO ! If you pass on the first try, it will make you an instant shock expert builder !

But seriously, they are one of the best around. Imagine that you can adjust externally the setting of the shocks without even taking the shocks apart to change piston holes... Just like the external rear / front ball diffs.

I noticed this from the very start, right after putting the top deck. Truly it does not really matter but I think the question is why they design like this ?
