hmmmm........ I'm not sure if it become easier to drive with or without stabilizers because I can drive both setup okay lap after lap.

All I can say now, the car has agility to attack corners more aggressively. It feels like driving yokomo mr4tc sd.

I still do, performula! It runs like a batouttahell! I want to put it up to run my MTX-3 everyday but I cannot keep it running. It is much more tempramental than my 2. I HOPE they keep making parts for the 3, that is why I bought it! Since they discontinued the MTX-2. BTW, anyone know where I can buy Kit Bag E (for the MTX-3)? I have lost 2 small parts that come from that bag. I don't think they will be easy to find.

Thanks everyone!

The latest date for the MTX4 is Sept. You shouldn't have problems finding MTX 3 parts for a while.

T0215 (pin) and D0809 (OE-5 clip)

Thanks mckrooz! I am going to call Ace Hobbies in 40 minutes or so to see if they have them. Robbie at Mugen says the parts are still available. If you have them, please let me know!

If you have part numbers, just give Ace Hardware Hobbies or Nitrohouse a call. They have quite a bit of Mugen parts and good prices. Plus, they give me great customer service and I am over 800 miles away!

LMK if I can help any further..........

As for the e-clip, I just go to a hardware store and they usually have those drawers with different sizes of e-clips. About .10 a piece.

Delange, try the pins from an HPI if you can't get the ones from Mugen. And I also believe that the NTC3 wheel pins work too.

Good tip! If I didn't still need the pin to run again, that would work. Robbie Collins at Mugen set me up with the part numbers & I place the order with Ace last night. It may take a few days but at least I found them AND I'll have extras!

Thanks for checking!

Is the higher lid so that the tank is at proper CC capacity, or easier access?

i think the older lid has 1 hole compared to the new one that has several holes...for more stabilised back pressure i think...
