i'm getting my mtx4 tomorrow and i'm sooo excited to build it. i'm switching over from ofna hobao gpx4 pro- i dont know why i got that car in the first place. can anyone fill me in so i dont have to read all 720 pages of comments. i got tired after post 400 or so.
what do i need to look out for when building? any tips would be helpful. are there any aftermarket items that i should get now?

There is no secret to building the Kit. It's pretty straight forward and it comes with a good base line setup.

My tip, just built up the car out of the box and take your time to do it. Donīt use directly any hopups. Just learn the car and after it, if you like, you can add some bling bling like the other ones here... `just joking`

Not too many hardcore Mugen guys in here jump ship and starting driving a Kyosho.

The most knowledgeable RRR guy (IMO), has been driving an MTX-4 for over a year now.

No you're not.

IMO, there are only a few things you need. Front/Rear universals and a one-piece engine mount.

It isnīt so, that I havenīt test anything. Last year I have tried some parts, but at the moment I donīt drive much better with the parts.

oh, could it means, im to bad?!

I mentioned, that a smooth running car, with the right weight is for me more important.
