Man what a great car. Tried some rollcenterthingies in the front and yes it's easy to change and yes it works super. Had to use some other shims then those in the kit cause I didn't have enough of them. With 1mm shims under the frontupperarm you''ll get a little more steering.
It's allmost glued to the track never had that "feeling" with my other car before. Makes you feel very comfy and makes you push the car more and more.

though the MRX-4 still uses the same clutch bell as on MRX-3 and MTX-3, does anyone know if I can use those MTX gears on the 4? was thinking of using my 2nd 22T MTX-3 on it. their part numbers are different though.

the stock comes as 17/20 and they are too low for me.

Default mrx4

has anyone run enough to know if mrx3 setups translate well to the 4. Car has many more detail changes than I expected.Much more thought went into the small things as example the hex in the ball ends.

Ala serpent/xray style. I saw that and I'm not too thrilled about that at all. I've had too many times the ball end "pops" right out and your car becomes undriveable. I like the old way of putting a washer on then thread thru the ball then onto the arms.

huh never had that problem have no washers on my current car. Had far more problems getting the mrx3 car's ball ends tight or removing them ,even after slotting. I'm sure you can still bolt and washer if you wish.
