I'm okay with mine. But then again, I used the Skyline Upper Deck support and side brace from the start of the build. Maybe that has something to do with it.

Default Broken MTX-4

One of my mates got a MTX-4 he ran the engine in on another car. Had the New MTX-4 never seen pavement starts it up puts it on the ground opens the throttle fully then the battery plug came out to the car went full speed down the main straight and smashed into the kerb and the chassis got bent in two places in front of and behind the battery pack area the front bent down and the back bent up. No one said anything to him for like 20mins . we almost saw come out his eyes and fair enought to. But he got the car fixed new chassis, tank , middle deck, front damper stay, front bulkheads (200 NZ$ about 140US i think). now he checks his plugs all the time .

Default fail safe?

hiya chaps!
an electronic failsafe works only when there is frequency jamming or interference.
i suggest, and please consider this with capital letters, RUBBER BANDS!
use rubber bands to make sure the throttle closes in the event of battery failure.
further to this, please consider using a digital servo for throttle as digital servos tend be less likely to bind off power (personaly observation), analog servos tend to be stiffer to turn and may require an insane number of rubber bands.
just hoop the rubber bands around the throttle ball stud and secure to the far side of the throttle. making sure that there is enuff tension to close the throttle off power, but not too much such that your servo is fighting the rubber bands constantly.... that might burn your servo or strip gears
i hope this helps.
-alexander
p.s. also get a electronic failsafe so your throttle won't be locked at full bore during freq interference

Yes, I use rubber too whenever possible. It protects you from chicken run and other mishap.
