Anyone know a good setup board to use with nitro sedan and 8th onroad that won't break the wallet? I'm still in the market for a new radio, spektrum module, and maybe a vantage pipe for my R40.

I've seen quite a few racers that uses melamine boards or plexiglass. So i guess you purchase it at your nearest home depot or lowes. Cost you probably less than $10.00. Then, you can buy the plastic set-up board decal separately.

Bought mine used.. and it came with it already. Well, since your using the rear belts on your front oneway.. it suppose to last you longer.. Since i bought it 5 months ago.. i only replaced it twice over 3 club races and 3 major races. I replaced it not because it stripped but the teeth of the belts where worn out. The only thing that sucks though is i have to shave off a bit of plastic on my right front bulkhead coz it rubs.

But still, i can't figure out why so much play..

How much for the plastic set-up board decal set now? How do I put those on? If this involves some sort of accuracy, I'd rather just purchase a setup board that make my own.

Do you see the size of the solid rear axle? No way that huge thing would fit in the front of the car.

You can get something called a locked front diff. Check out www.gasrccar.com

you can find out more about it there.

I'm sorry forgot to say that I didn't even build my kit yet. So that's means I couldn't tell.. know the funny thing is I got this kit like 3 months ago. And haven't had a chance to put it together. But when my MTX 4 came 2 weeks ago I built it right away..hehehe.. Anyway I put a locked diff for my MTX 4 instead.. Think I'll do the same with my MRX...

Hi US racers.

Just a question from the land down under, what would a solid front do to the car? Wouldn't that make it push and scrub speed when cornering?

I've been eyeing that solid front from gasrccar but not sure if if its worth getting.

In my opinion this is what happens with a solid front:

- it would give friction between the front and the rear tires, this will result in loss of speed....
- If you want to use a solid front, your front and rear tires should be of a diameter that there is no overdrive.
- cornering, especialy with the allready solid rear, would be more difficult.
- more wear on the belt and pulley's, also bigger change of breaking them....


No, in my opinion, a front solid is only usefull in the rain.....

Do you refer to Spool ( Solid front axle ) ??

Spool is good for technical track ( lots of braking before tight turns ) with poor to medium bite asphalt. It's new trend in electric cars now.

Are you sure MRX4 have Spool option ?

The risk : see M7H above

The benefit : you can enter tight corner very fast, brake, and exit like hell.

I think No too because 1). 1/8 cars usually have wide sweeping corners. 2). The middle and front belts might tear apart.
