The Hudy is only $130. To make a board it only costed me $8 for some melamine board...enough to make two setup boards. The decal is $13. I got the metal one which is why it's that price, but the plastic one is cheaper. The downside to it...it's harder to read especially in sunlight. PMB is good nontheless, but I like the Hudy metal ones. Sure I could've gone with the Hudy tire truer as well, but it's expensive...costing $300. Hudy quality though and the resale value will still be pretty high.



Yes I know the toe in gauge is upside down.

OK, I have Ofna 1/10 Starter Box

http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/WTI0001P?&I=LXAXU2

and was wondering if I could use it ( or modify it ) as a stater box for my MRX4?

THX in advance

And what's the best charger to use on the 12V battery? Can I use an Integy charger that I use on my electric RC cars?

THX a second time...

I use that same dual motor box for 10th on/off, and 8th on/off. It says its for 10th only, but that's BS...total BS. Single motor boxes don't provide much more torque, but rather a little more RPM. Torque is what you need to get the motor crankin and thats where the 12v batt comes in. The 7amp version has enough amps to get your motors spinning and crank the engine. For a breakin simply loosen the plug. I usually put some MMO in the engine, remove the plug, and crank it on my box to get it lubed up.



You may want to use the pegs and you will need 3 to have the car seated perfectly to be started.

Best price on tires. But beware. They don't email you after the order or call you. They just show up at your house in 4-5 days.

Hey guys

This may sound like a dumb question but are the encentric hubs for the mrx4r the pieces that fit in the new bulkhead? I am in the process upgrading my mrx4 and thats the only piece i need.

Hi bmcallister,

Yes the Eccentric Hubs are the ones that fit in new Bulk Heads....
They are where the bearings ride on and makes both the Front/Rear Belts adjustable.

New eccentric hubs : Part #(T0154)

No dumb question here... If you need anything, please feel free to ask.

Yes. They hold the bearings and can be set in three different adjustments for belt tension preference.

Or what he said.

Here I am at Bridgeport doing a practice/warmup run. Unfortunately the track had some pebbles, but the main problem was the excess dirt. I drifted off throttle going through the last turn (not seen clearly) in the vid. The heavy brownish areas were most dust littered and the other spots can't be seen. A fellow racer brought his leaf blower and that helped out a whole lot. I'd post the pictures, but they are in the video so MRX4 fans check it out! A slightly tragic end for me as a screw got loose on the steering linkage so I went at the wall at nearly 60 though crashed at around 45mph. Broke the left steering knuckle and that's it. On my R40 I would've broken a heck lot more. Enough chit chat...watch the vid!

FYI, you were skipping the last turn, don't know if you where doing it on purpose because of the dirt though.

Maybe we can meet up at the track one of these days.

LOL, that narrows it down....

I used to run 30% in my old 4-tec... Got the motor temp up to 425 the last time I ran it... And that was the last time I ran it....
