If it is an MTX-3 (and I'm pretty sure it is) it is an excellent car. Unfortunately it is an older car so some parts may be a bit difficult to find but other than that, it is still capable of winning and best of all, it's a tough and reliable car.

I totally agree, except about you saying that parts are hard to find. Look on ebay, end-of-line-rc.co.uk, and Ashford hobbies and you'll find a significant amount of parts for it.

I didn't say they were difficult, I said they MAY be. I sold my MTX-3 when the 4 came out so I haven't had to look for parts.

Hello all,
after a fair bit of waiting i received this car this morning, it looks like a quality bit of kit, There seems to be no way of starting the model though. Would i be right in guessing that im going to need a starter box?
thanks
STEVE

Yes you will need a starter box.
