Quick question, will the MRX4 reciever battery fit the MTX4?

Are they the same battery layout?

Thanks

Has anyone had problems with the rear upper arm. I broke mine and was wondering if anyone has had a similar experience. I noticed that Kawahara sell their own Arm, is it any more durable? The breakage was stupid and i doubt will happen again, but the mtx-4 arm is considerably weaker compared to the the mtx-3's arm IMO.

When you say rear upper arm, are you talking about the camber link? There is no rear upper arm.

I guess he does.

Buy C0111C black plastic connectors, and cut / shortened them by 3mm on both connectors. This allows the turnbuckles to screw deeper.

Buy H0860 black ball connectors and 18mm - 20mm button head screws. Screw the ball connectors / rear upper link from above ( MTX3 style ).

The camber link is just a piece of steel or titanium with the two pivot ball ends on it. The shock tower is the piece of carbon fiber that the upper end of the shock bolts too. Also has the body mounts. If you are talking about the shock tower, then yes the stock one is a bit thin. Mugen makes a 4mm thick version that is more durable. It is not unbreakable, but more durable. I posted the part number for that several pages back, but you should be able to find the part number on the mugen website. You can also email Robbie and I am sure he would be happy to give you the part number for the option rear shock tower.

The MTX 4 is a pretty durable car. There are only 3 parts I ever really break on the car. Rear shock tower (even the option one sometimes), the rear arms and the front uprights/steering knuckle. The front upright/knuckle is the part I break the most and it is the same from the MTX3.

HI to all guys here ! This is my first post.
Short news about me . I'm from Italy, 51 y.o., my english is not so fluently like I'd likme have, but I'm MTX4 enthusiastic, so here I am.
My mtx4 has not a lot of upgrade or hop up, but only that ones I think they are a must, as 4mm original frame.
I tested the new t0138b front upper (not yet t0161 rear turnbackle plate), both with older setup either the latest. They works very good but better with the older setup by far, much more steering !
