Same here.

They hold heat, the rims never break or crack, the foam is durable and has as much bite as any other foam.....priced right also.

The GQ's are fine. I used them for a while and they did offer me a sponsorship. I stopped using them, because availability was not consistant. I have switched to Fast Tires on the MTX wheels. The fast tires can be purchased at Ace or Nitrohouse for a very good price. Ace normally charges $15/pr but you buy 3 and get 1 for free. That comes out to $11.25/pr. That is a great deal for a US dealer.

Yea I noticed that the cam had a little bit of slop when it was inside of the shoes. I just ordered some new shoes to be on the safe side. Going to NJ this weekend. Thanks

I have found that the best tires to use are the Fast Tires with the MTX3 rims.....all others are good... i just found these to be the best

- You can use zero degree off set tires and 2 degree offset tires, you may need to do some ajusting.

- I'd wait for the MTX-4, it will be around $350 which is cheaper than what the prospec is priced right now.

How do you know MTX4 will be price around $350 ? I think it's fair price considering the price of V1 RRR and 710.

How do I know?

Mike confirmed it for us a while back.

The MTX-4 will not be more expensive then a MTX-3 Prospec. The MTX-4 is going to be about the same price as a standard MTX-3.

found the same dilemma, get the mtx4 stock or wait for the prospec. Ive got my mtx3 stock about 2 years and it runs strong as brand new! Ill wait for the prospec version to come out some time next year and see what are the pros and cons once the 4 comes out. too bad that the 4 wont come with front universals and al engine mount

I've used GRP Devils with great results, you can get them from www.nitrohouse.com for $9 bucks a pair.
