It still needs updating in the manual.
They have already revised the manual but there are still some things which need fixing.
Oh, ok, thankx for the reply guys, will finish the assembly.

The one you quoted is 34x56x12.5 and has a capacity of 800Mah
Fully charged it's enough for 1 hour of driving with two low profile servos.

...
Nice, thankx.

The kit they sent me was also with the old manual. Don't worry, I went through the same things. I did not even know there was an updated manual on line. I found out after I finished the car. hehehe

Hello,

Recently purchased an MTX4 with a complete Capricorn Clutch system. Could someone direct me as to where I may find an instruction sheet to assemble the clutch. Thank you

Here you go:

They advice starting out with 0.5mm spring preload, but this is too tight for most, I would start with 0.2-0.3

Some very nice stuff released today, magnesium two speed axle supports.





They will make the car even lighter, bot more importantly, if you ask me, they will raise the rear anti rollbar assembly by 2mm which removes the need for the small e-clips.

Nope, won't test it like that either since I feel that would be a waste of time, tires and such.
Plus I think it will only improve acceleration, all of that weight is located in the lowest and most central place of the car, by removing that it will probably increase side to side roll.
