LOL, I'll give you three months, you'll be like us ( cleaning everything and re-lubing the bearings. )

I just found this forum and its been great reading. I am looking at getting back in racing and for me it looks like the MTX4 is the way to go. So I will probably be asking alot of questions, and it seems like everyone is eager to help. See ya around.....

Default Skyine MTX4

I am very pleased with the quality of these Skyline option parts for the MTX4. I figured I should take a couple of pictuers, since this is as clean as it will ever be. and those parts are so nice.

I have been starting my split at 1.7mm. Last week I ran my split even smaller. At one point I was running .5mm split. Less split adds on-power steering.

The size and shore of my tires has a lot to do with the track.

IMO the alfa body stinks on 200mm nitro. That body was inconsistant and loose. The losi alfa was the best of the three (losi, protoform, parma) but still alfas I found alfas unstable and a pain to drive. I think the Mazda is the easiest body to drive but I now run Protoform Dodge 3.1's.

Usually sedan is designed with front wheel overdrive, so smaller front wheels to compensate.
