It is good because you dont have to tweak anymore. I think Mugen Seiki want us to re-adjust left & right from Sub Trim in the transmitter.

It is bad because you can't adjust manualy like in MTX3.

IMO, I think it's good idea to adjust L&R from Sub Trim. I'm sure the turnbuckle link will not change after big impact. Just take a look at it, it's fixed !!

rookie way of centering the steering - you only do that on the driver's stand when needed (fine tuning)!

not that you cannot do that, but if that's the only way then we'll have to go with it

...well...we'll end up modifying it then...

Let me see how do you mod it I'm sure every mtx4 owners must start learning to live with it and accept it. You can't flip the servo horn because it will hit the saddle pack battery.

I feel the same way because I'm not used to it ( tweaking from sub trim ). I can get along with that just like tamiya cars

Trim 2mm off both plastic ball ends and use s 1/12th front upper arm adjustable turnbuckle, trimmed smaller (Associated part #8415 = $2). Threads may be too wide, but it's a start.

I hate sub trim...always want my car going straight right off the setup board.

it may be expandable but what about if you were to go in, in other words, make the link shorter. this adjustment may be needed due to servo differences. that's what my bro (rcracerdude) was referring to.

we noticed this the first time we saw the pics. but it will be an easy mod, if we have to. cutting the plastic and/or shortening the rod. so no biggie . the fun part would be adjusting it to center the ackerman to the neutral of the servo (i personally don't like centering the ackerman using the radio subtrim. i want it centered mechanically). you will have to remove the link, twist the plastic, put it back on and check. then do it again until you have it right . but good thing the mtx-4 now have hexed ball link as it can be easily removed with a hex driver just like the 710

Or unscrew it, give it a few turns, screw it back on, measure, repeat if necessary.
