Default Mounting the Pressure Chamber

Guys,

How did you mount your Pressure Chamber on your car, did you drill a hole in the upper deck or something? As far as I know there is no hole in the middle of the upper deck. How did you do it.

Same here. Before drilling, I test fitted the pressure chamber getting as close to the tank as possible while not having the side of the tank interfere with me screwing the screw on the bottom in and out. You might want to drill the whole slightly undersize so the screw will fit snug. That way, it won't fall out during maintenance.

I planned on it (which is why I'm up so late) and got the days off but too many issues got in the way. 1) I bought a personal transponder on ebay and it hasn't came in yet and I'm not sure it's coming in tomorrow so I made plans to just stay here and hopefully race.

What about you? I read that you were not making an appearance either and not refunding tickets to your fans. Will you be going to the Toys for Tots?
That will be my final appearance as an amateur so ticket prices will be up there

Default MTX 4?

Hey guys,
im looking to buy a new car as i have had it with my Fw05rr. Keeps breaking down and i cant get to handle right.
By all accounts the MTX4 sounds like the best car by far and the support is great for them where i am.
looking at getting the Ninja motor when it arrives here.
Is there any thing to watch out for and any important upgrades to make?.
Any help would be great

Thanks Mate thats awesome,
There are the other 2 main cars i am also looking at are the Serpent and rrr evo, but im still leaning towards the Mugen.
The fwo5rr has been good but it is getting too tired now and im due for a change.
Seeing as you have have both, RRR and mtx4 which in your opinion is the most user friendly?.

The MTX-4 and RRR are both good cars. You can't go wrong with either of them. If you're more inclined to go with the Mugen, you should follow your instincts.
