Cool, didn't know so I apologize for that. But let's make this a bit more positive thread, eh?

I think the American thing "To say something good or nothing" most of the time is the way to go. Ahhhhhh....wait a minute, this is a Toy RC Car site not a political blogger dive. Strike that....

Stefan, it appears that you always have some sob stories to tell. Yawn. Sorry for you luck with stickers. Maybe you should of stocked up prior to your departure. All prices are reflective of the World Trade. So if the Yen & the US Dollar is down expect to pay more. In your case the Euro, lol.

Thumbs up Incredible

I raced my MTX-4 last Wednesday and I need to said the car's performance is awesome.
I used to raced the MTX-3 with front differential and when I try the 4 with one way and the basic setup feel incredible, I didn't change anything of the setup.

You get what you paid: quality, awesome perfomance and great car.

These are not major flaws, but I can't test my brand new car (over $900 spent) over the weekend for next week's Fusion race.

I will contact Mugen today and advise...
Just talked to Robbie, and Mugen USA does take care of their customers. Thanks again Robbie for the good service as always.

I know this is a hobby for some of us.... but really I don't see mine as a toy. It's a purpose built machine. I see r/c toy cars are those made by Tyco. Or I just take racing WAY too seriously?

toy can be defined in many ways... but i'm in the same boat as you! some guys are into kites. and to us they are looked at as toys. but they got some pretty serious setup also that costs a lot of money to where the word "toy" is already defined differently. and yes, you are right, we are serious about it

I hear you guys. I was just trying to lighten things up a bit and to help keep this site from getting all serious and political.

i haven't had enough sleep in the last three day. i think the total hours of sleep i got since tuesday night is 8-10 hours! but i finally got my mtx-4 done!!!!!

i was gonna do at least a 3 color body but i got so tired last night (didn't sleep til 6:30 in the morning and worked today at 8 ) that i ended up going with this:





i also spent time shortening/soldering servo wires and also making my custom jr switch that is attached to the receiver cover! i like it because it looks like it's a part of the car:






i'm gonna run it tonight and see how it goes!
