Nice meeting you. Feel free to ask for any help with your setup.
You too. I see you're running the JP monsters in your rides. Those engines must fly! I managed to setup the mrx4 per setup sheet and honestly I really wasn't that far off from stock. Looking forward to running at bridge again and awaiting the results. This is most definately an investment. Have you ran last year at the Chester P challenge at bridge?

I ran once at Bridge last year...Chester P's race was too close to the Nats so I bailed. Come to think of it, I was at the Nats with Chester. I'll be there as soon as the weather breaks.

Default deciding on new 1/8..

so far im leaning towards the mugen mrx4-r
seams to be the latest and have much nicer goodies preloaded
I cant believe the evolva 05 doesnt come with front unis.. imagine dogbones in a 1/8 no way!

The lightened gearbox sounds good.. i just had all the rotating parts in my rrr changed to titanium and its acceleration has improved heaps.

ive read most of this thread and everyone seams happy with the mrx4

A fast local I know switched from Mugen to the evolva - it's all preference. My LhS doesn't have the kyosho so I got this.

What the heck?! No rain/snow! God dam weather forecasters! Who's down for a quick track bash? Unfortunately I have work, but I'm down for a quick run at bridgeport. I'm gearing up right now - just letting the batts finish up.
