Out of the box setup the RRR is more on point & feels very stable
for the MTX4 I built it box setup & it was very loose & very twitchy so after alot of tweaking got the car dialed but really did not like the performance car is very weak at some points. I seen alot of guys stripping gears & breaking shock towers luck for me that was not the case. I guess since i know the RRR very well it might just be my comfort zone. But i can tell you the RRR is a more durable car I have not broken a shock tower yet. and where im racing @ were on full throttle 75% of the track & I hit some boards @ full throttle going in to tight & hot & come off with a common damage of breaking a arm versus seeing a guy with a MTX4 hiting the same part of the track & he is replacing 4-5 parts versus one part from a RRR. I would have to say that if i had more time with the Mtx4 I would of enjoyed it but i still think it is to fragile.

Thanks 710baby! Good info. Maybe I won't get a MTX-4 after all. My WCE has been pretty durable given the abuse I've been dishing out. I hit the boards pretty hard this past weekend and the only thing I really destroyed were my wheels. Maybe Mugen will come out with a Team/Factory edition that will address some of these issue. That might be the right time to pick one up.

Being an average driver, I banged my V1RRR a lot. I broke the shock tower once, but never had any gear problems.

i think you either have your gear mesh wrong or the 2 speed assembly is always engaging so maybe theres a pebble in the 2 speed shoe assembly.

with the gear mesh if theres too much play the spur tooth and pinion tooth can meet when the car rolls back making the car lock up.

Check the 2-speed. It may be stuck.

A guy at my LHS recommended that I switch to the 15T gear (VZ214-15). Kit comes with 16T. Anybody got any advice to go along with this changing in gearing? Thanks!

The stock gearing is already low and you would need a track with good traction to benefit going any lower.
