I agree, the front locked is great comparing to the one way which was standard with my mtx-4 kit I found the car is much easier to drive and of course helps with breaking which I found lets me drive harder in and through the corners and if i stuff up I no I have breaks, not a handbrake which is going to spin me out and lose time

i us this most of the time.

its not 2mm its 2
would this feature also kind of increase the castor, as when the steering turns left or right the camber would increase more than standard because of the 2 degree top set in position?

Any of you guys running any droop upfront? I'm still near there of the factory settings with just some changes to F/R camber and rear toe in. I swapped over my JR 9000S into my MTX4 for steering (robbed it from the MRX4) and the previous STR servo, the JR 4800S is now for throttle. Couldn't believe I had that mild servo in for steering all along as I thought I had the 8800s. Decided my next .12 will be the JLR so as soon as I get one I'll try it out and let you guys know how it runs in the MTX4. Such the plugs are $9 a pop...but so are the OS #8 Turbo P8s I use for my Carlsen TZ.

You may be starting off in second if you have wound out everything - it may be sluggish down low and changing almost immedately.

Set the shue clearance to almost nothing (probably about half the bals showing) and even and the tension to the screws flat across (per the manual)

Is you tuning ok if you are running too ritch for instance the motor won't reve out enough to engage second.

Wally- Wow that's expensive. Nova plugs here are about $5-$6 a pop. Not sure how much are the Ninja plugs though.

I don't think there are any harder material than the stock spur gears.

Even the delrin type ( blue color ) from 3racing are not tough as advertised.





Yo..... Wally.... Do you know if I can use novarossi plugs into OS engines ( or Novarossi engines with OS plugs ) ?? .......... I heard the bottom tip of the plugs are different angle ?

Thanks man.
