I am thinking about getting the Murnan 12+3 as a backup for my JP. I have heard nothing but good things about Uriah's motors.

Mugen MTX-4 takes TQ and the top 2 podium positions at the RC pro series west round 2 race in Santa Clara, California. I set TQ while Alan Mishaga and I finished 1st and 2nd beating the field by a full 5 laps with 122 laps completed in a 45 minute A-main. I talked to Mishaga and both of our cars looked flawless when we inspected our cars yesterday .

I will be there, I just hope those guys stick to what they do best(1/8th). It will be great to see Mikey and Darin run again, there is so much to learn from them.

We have the regionals this week in MD. Do I need to worry about the gas tank size being to large on the 4?

Doctor: We ( Alan and I ) did not have any issues with the MTX-4 tanks. They were just right. RC pro officials checked all tanks after each qualifier.

Hey Doc ~ we found at Nationals some of the older tanks were a little over size, but on the newer tanks they are legal. I would have it checked before you race. Just in case.
