everything else is only needed if you want it to be a featherweight,
otherwize it's a rocket as a stocker
How did your mates that were setting up a new track go?
Did they find a good product to use for the track surface?
Are they up and running already?
If you can post some pics i'd like to see the outcome
Cheers

to tell you the truth, i have not bought it yet. i am still in the process of deciding. maybe i will keep the mtx 4. what does everyone think about this car stock with the 4mm rear shock tower (which i already have)?

The only thing i have on the car apart from the front CVDs and 4mm rear shock tower is a mugen 4mm chassis as i needed to change it (from crash damage) so i chose a 4mm because the tracks i race on are medium to high bite.
With only these extras the car is very competetive!
If only my driving could keep up!!

I wonder what else might be new but its harder to see.
Has the top deck been modified to fit the new tensioner?

I've just bought the MTX4 but it came with the old style tensioner so must of been old stock, doesn't that just p!$$ you off?

I had the same problem. So I took my dremmel and modified my tensioner plate so that I could turn it around. I had to remove a small bit of the top deck as well.

Where's the best place that carries all the MTX-4 parts? I've looked all over the net and haven't come to a site that I would consider a great dealer for Mugen.
