∑ I have an OS TZ 3 port, what pipe should I get?
∑ What seems to break so I know what spares to get?
∑ Set-ups for small parking lot tracks? Low to med grip. At least a starting point.
∑ What body seems to work well?
∑ Anyone else thatís gone from a NTC3 to the MTX4 if they could give me their impression of the differences between the cars.

Thanks in advance
-Get a VR12 Skyline pipe or the OS Pipe
-Belts, arms, uprights, shock towers, belts
-Stock setup works awesome
-Try the CTS Cadillac for very small technical tracks or the Stratus 3.1

Oh course Chris. I just bolted these wheel nuts because it was the first things I seen on my work bench when I decided to take the photos.

other then eye candy factor, i can't think of any other reason for it , it doesn't really help with weight either unless you go with titanium ones..

Well, stainless steel screws exist by the meaning of its name "stainless". The problem with regular steel screws is that they can get rusted from scratches, water and dirt. Then they lose the strength causing breaking and striping.

leemuse is pretty good with parts so try calling him 1-866-NITRORC
brooklyn hobbies is pretty good too, (718) 951-2500
that's the only drawback with these two great hobby shops, their website is not that great and most are not listed. but they are real nice people and will take care of you.
