Personally, I donīt like at all 3racing. The quality of their goods arenīt so good.

As nitro_moe said, just buy the steel one from mugen. I also use it. The weight a little bit more, but at all you have more fun with them.

Thanks, I will get the steel for sure. I was not aware that they made steel ones. At my level, alum/steel does not make any difference.

The diffrent is the weight. More rotatet mass.
But my philosophy is, when you canīt loose weight, put more power in!

Hi guys. I created an essential spares list* for the car at the MTX-4 Knowledge Base, for someone's first time out on the track, which I wouldn't mind getting some input on. If you have some suggestions on what to add or remove, please let me know.

Spares List: http://www.nitrokb.com/mtx4/spares.html

Thanks!
Rainer

* It's based on the spares in my parts box.

Looks good. I would add the rear shock mount and some misc. bearings like the clutch bell and the ones out in the wheel hub carriers. Just my 2 cents.

I have seen, that a lot of people use the direct connection of the battery to the receiver.

To Save the cable they make something around them. But what?

Look here at Fukudaīs car..

get a female servo plug (like the one that comes on a charger or servo extension) and unglue the cap, and then insert it totally on the battery plub and then reglue it, it will allow to unplug the battery wire easier
personally I prefer to use the traxxas y connector, its cheaper, very short
and will let you use the cover, you can cut the other plug from the y so you'll have an additional battery plug,

happy racing

Thanks Doc. You've had problems with the bearings in the hub carriers? That's interesting. Are they wearing prematurely or do they not do well in a crash?

maybe lower rear suspension pin holders(anti squat adjuster)have lost these in a crash before and also dogbones if you don't have uni swing shafts

Good ideas.

You've lost the pin holders?!! That must have been some crash!

It's one of those buys which you'll never regret. Besides, why care about weight if you're not racing..?? The main thing is that you have all the fun you can have with the car without any problems,,(I hope)

My mood goes down the drain everytime I strip a second gear or have a problem..

Yup! Reliablity is number one. If weight is an issue, you can always lighten the load somewhere else.

No mine are still the kit ones and still in good shape. I just hate to break something and not have it when I need it. I agree with Evil also, I have broke the cups that hold the pins also. I also keep all of the pulleys just in case you pick up a rock.

I hope this will reduce gear stripping. My record was 7 gears stripped in one day, That's close to $50.

Any sugestion on chassis bending? I have 2 mtx4, both chassis are slightly bent. I hit something a little hard but the same hit on my mtx3's and they are ok. All of my mtx3's none prospec are 2-3 yrs old and I am still using the original chassis. In fact I have been club racing my mtx3 becasue I can drive the shxt out of it. The 2nd gear never stripes, the chassis never bends.
