thanks - jason

i sold my MTX3 last month, i wasn't running nitro that much anymore, but the MTX4 seems to be tempting me to run nitro again!

so, how does the MTX4 handle? turns-in harder? more on power? is it more stable? etc?

Those are in USD. 1 USD = 10.200 Rupiah. My 12 digit calculator is not enough to calculate Maybach & RR Phantom

Hey, I haven't heard mtx4 reviews yet. How is the handling compare to MTX3 or RRR WC ?

Default MTX-4 on track

I saw a certain Southern California based Mugen driver at Crystal Park with his MTX-4 yesterday and the car looks good. Much more adjustable than the 3.

Sato Seiki makes the same part, I guess one of the 2 companies produces the parts for the other.

Check HK shops, some have it.

I have one on my car, I can take it out and sell it to you, just don't tell my buyer! No, just kidding.

Try Ace

No need to remove the chassis stiffener as you slide the engine in sideways...
Am i right ?
I think the flywheel gets in the way if you don't remove theh chassis stiffener?

So far what we have tested is that the car feels alot planted and has loads of steering (alot more cornering speed). Makes you feel like a F1 driver and able to take impossible lines.

At our local track, we have seen lap times improving and contiune to drop.

Personally i feel that the 4 is as good as the RRR in terms on cornering speed or maybe better.. but i am abit biased so..
