even with a massive hit, it can never hit the pulley, as the spring section is above it now.

Default need and mtx4

I am looking to take your mtx4 off of your hands. I would like it to be in excellent shape as if you would be proud to sell the car to your brother. Extra parts are a bonus and I would like to take an engine off of your hands as well...something with less than a half a gallon on it. I would like a new body, too.

I am looking to get back into racing on road.

Pm me or send me an email at [email protected]. Pic please!!

Thanks a million!!!

Mike

hey guys does anyone know if there is a thrust bearing available for the clutches that is like the xray diff thrust bearings? ie the balls are encapsulated in a solid housing, as oposed to a rolled "sheet"type bearing like the current thrustbearings.

i've noticed that when my mate set his clutch gap up how the kyosho instructions stated, it wore out the thrust bearing alot quicker. the xray style thrust seems to be alot stronger and hold a large load better.

like this one

Yep, its sold....going to run it this weekend at the region 4 race and after that, I'll be running something different.

Wasn't happy about a few things, and it had nothing to do with the car, the car was awsome all around, and my(now somebody else's) car has so many prototype parts on it, the only thing stock is the arms, uprights, and rear bulkheads.

Default Lowering CG with a new Mod FREE PART

Well, here is the last part that I've made for the MTX-4......I was trying to get these produced before now, but the person who I want to do the work is too busy at the time, but in the future, hopefully.

This is a carbon fiber batter tray that lowers the batteries 2mm......this will place the batteries .3mm from being flush with the bottom of the chassis. At the time, there is only 5 made and I will give one away on monday. anybody who would like to be put in the drawing for one, please email only once at [email protected]. When produced, the cost I'll trying to keep at or below $10 shipped, (in the US).......When you email me, just say "yes" or "NO" in the email if you would purchase one when they are produced. I won't pass your information along, but I will use your information as to how many parts I need to have produced as it will only be ran 1 time.

I will contact the winner with a reply email and will also post the person(s) name as to who won Only enter your email once, as I might just go ahead and give 2 or 3 away! And to be fair, I will also post the name(s) or screen-name of the persons who receive the part.

Oh, to get the full benefit of this part, when shipped, it will contain instructions on how to mod the car to get the CG down lower.
