try and c.. i also want to get d simpler way to do it..

another thg, Riketsu:
1st no more using long screw for d rear knuckle assmbling d camber linkage or steering linkage,it is now more better way it was done..but for the front&rear 3mm shock tower,it is like logical to fit 4mm,there should be option parts for it later..but d lastyear Brazil WC,i saw most RRR running wit 3mm still maybe their hands stiffens d shocks..
I have seen some drivers at my track with the rear camber link loose. Better safe than sorry.

Mtx3 flywheel onwards are totally different than in mtx4, so be careful not to mix the flywheel and clutch bell.

Maybe you use mtx3 flywheel ?

i wont make that mistake in assembley..

riketsu,by d way..how they solve d camber linkage from loosen? i understood d linkage should b like kyosho better coz mugen linkage is smaller and small picth threading,so thats why when turning few times ofcoz to adjust d camber,it tends to loose..
good after sales s/parts too..

mine did same thing today i also already blew one of 5/8 bearings so I hoped bearings would hold up better other than that car was great faster than my 3 with same setup. Does anybody know what kit tires are as in shore.

Hello everyone

Im looking at both the serpent 710 and the MTX-4. Im just wondering what has the best parts availability, plenty of hop-ups and is very durable. Just looking for some opinions.

Thank You in advance.

Guess my grammar aint that good. Meant the link came off. Like the shocks's quick release. If you observe the MTX-3's construction, most of the parts will hold together because of screws and there is no such thing as a quick release (except steering turnbuckles). I gotta ask the question: when have you broken a MTX-3 Shock, or one of the shocks has come off? Its just some of the weak points I have seen the drivers suffer at my track.

Check to see if its the rear roll bar hitting the housing. If my down stops are not set correctly the roll bar will rub.

I believe this car will spank the RRRRRRRRR in the worlds. If I am wrong, I will buy myself the first round at the bar that night.
Joe, I think that you forgot your radio at the track today, you should give them a call.
