Okay guys, this is the results of my formula, as you can see, it matches the MTX-4 chart. IMO, the axis labels on the MTX-4 chart are swapped. They have the rear values going across the top, when it's actually suppose to be the front values. Just my 2 cents...

Steve: At the RC Pro series race for Rams, I ran 58/17, 52/23. Hit me up at [email protected]. I have a good set-up for the rams track.

Has anyone run the 4mm chassis on a high grip surface? Is it worth the investment to have the option? Or should I just stick with the 3mm?

I run at Revelation and Crystal Park in CA.

Thanks

i run the 4mm chassis and the car seems more planted, consistent and smother to drive on high grip than the 3m chassis

blue should be used for buggy, yellow should be the best but if you brake hard, try Kyosho APP pad (now i'm using). The stock disc should be fine If you wants to upgrade the brake system, KAWAHARA brake cam should be a must.

Or wait for the option by X'ray's NT1 with Ferodo disc, its shape looked pretty similar and should be used on MTX4.

Someone is making a new fiberglass disk that is going to be the ticket on the sedans. You use the new disk and just the steel plates with no pad. The fiberglass disk is less spinning weight and does not fade.

I've sent 2 emails to pdub about shipping costs to the UK for the brake disk but had no reply. There flat rate international shipping cost is $25.

Can anyone list some symptoms of a chassis warped beyond repair, and has anyone had any experience with the skyline 3mm chassis? If so, what's the weight diff between skyline and stock?

For me, I have to change the chassis if it is bent in more than one direction. Usually if it's only bent one way and not too much, I can bend it back temporarily.

I don't know the weight difference between the Skyline ad stock chassis but if anything the Skyline is a few grams heavier. The weight difference is small and not enough to drastically change the handling.
