Looking forward to running at superior. I will have more of the shock supports I make. I should have 10pr this week and more to come. Still waiting on my buddy to get some time on the CnC. He said 3 weeks, I can't wait that long. But when he can, I hope to have at least 30 to 50 sets. $30 a set. With the stock ones that broke this weekend, this is going to be a must have if you run big tracks like Kissimmee. Fast-n-Furious was running one. Tire wear was horable this weekend, but that will change in the future with the nats this week, the track won't be so green. Next month, I am looking forward to having better gearing too. That will give me some extra speed in areas.

On the track, The car is rigid and doesn't exhibit any tweaking after i crash hard, flying and somebody hit me too hehehe but it cool. The chassis is a very strong slab of aluminum and suffered only minor scratches lol on its bottom after im driving on Sun Vally Speedway course.

Joe... You talking about the MRX-4 or the MTX-4?

For the building tips? Well here is one for ya. When I built my MTX3 Prospec, and the new MTX4, I will make sure all the lower A-Arms drop with there own weight. In other words, make sure to take the time to shave all the little burrs off the plastic. Put the lower suspension together, and lift the A-Arms. When you let go, they should drop with there own weight.

Also, I didn't like the bearings in the kit. They seemed to be lub'ed with grease. I cleaned them up, like you would do maintenance on your current car. Re-oil them, and you'll get a free rolling car right from the start.

For servos, I'm using the Futaba 9451 digital for steering, and futaba 9550 digital for the throttle.

Love the car, and plenty of people wanted to look it over at the races.

RC, thanks for the help, and I'll see you at Superior, but I'm running my MTX3 Prospec there.
A few of my frens were using the Tamiya Lubricating oil for bearings (Fuchs). The bearings are silky smooth after the treatment.

Plus.. one of the guys got hold of the Mugen rubber belts for the front and rear.. now his car is smoother then ever.. almost like no friction!!
