Anyone have a nice MTX-3 spare built front diff or all the parts to built one they can part with? PM me if you do. Thanks

One other thing, this Prospec is so much more tight than my Kyosho's are. Not binding....just tighter fit of parts. Kyosho are good cars too. It's just something I noticed so far. I am looking forward to running it.

Well, I'll jump on the bandwaggon too... I have been racing R40s for 2 years and I recently purchsed a used Prospec and I am totally impressed with the engineering behind the MTX ProSpec. And I just weighed in at 1698 g race-ready I never got the R40 down in weight this much..... Looking forward to running it !!

If you see any other car than MTX3 Prospec, ( no need to mention name of other cars ), only MTX3 Prospec get the highest quality and durability for plastic, carbon and metal parts. Have excellent but yet simple design of everything for examples, using less screws ( except the tank position and two speed balls are sux ). Have handsome look from above, beneath and side.

Do you know that you can use longer screws to hold the front and rear bulkheads even stronger ( but possibly more weight and more stiff ). I'm using 3x12mm countersunk & button head Ti screws everywhere as long as they are fit.

My intitial impression:

Likes:
1) Easy access to Rx holder/cover, makes for a clean look too.
2) steering design looks stable and rugged
3) Nice "open" design (easy to do visual inspections in between runs)
4) The tank is positioned more forward than the R40 which makes easier access when filling up the tank.
5) Nice and light!
6) Easy access to steering linkage
7) Engine removal --Four screws and remove the sidebelt - and you can swap out the engine (the R40 takes a little more work).

Dislikes:
1) I wish the gas tank could be removed from the top.

I am hoping I find that the clutchbell can be removed while the engine remains mounted. Another issue with the R40 is you couldnt access the clutch assembly unless you lifted the engine up slightly.

So far so good! I'll need to work my Avitar soon

Hey, don't knock the original MTX-3 kit. I have been running mine since I bought it in March 2002 and it is still pretty much bone stock. The only changes I made to mine was replacing the two speed adapters with the light weight ones, got a blue woven graphite upper deck with matching shock towers, changed to the aluminum wheel hubs (this year), and using an aluminum pulley on the front belt shaft (changed two months ago). Only the woven graphite change wasn't a necessity. Mine, with motor and body, normally weighs in between 1730g and 1785g depending on what brand of motor I am running in the car.

Wayne- Hope to see you guys the 25th! Always close racing with the ST LOUIE crowd!! No worries about parts. Picked up a spare CAR off this web site. I'll be in Toledo trying to stay off the boards there this weekend. Thats the reason for the back-up. Can't have enough spares anyway. lol

Ira- Your not on the road,are ya? You have PM.

There will be many cool things happening for racer's at this weekends Katrina benefit race bodies have been donated for raffle by www.kolorsbykropy.com one 1/8TH scale protoform and one sedan protoform all proceeds will go to the relief fund for those who are less fortunate as us.
Just think one day we might be looking to them for help.

Yeah, I bought a few of them, just to try them out. Durability is excellent, but grip is noticably less than with the Fast tires I normally run...

best grip and wear. i just wish they go a little cheaper or go with the market standard now which is around $10. but i think it's worth the extra $3.
