Do you have a deal like that for a MTX-4 Chassis? I have $8 ready for mailing charges.

looks like I have to make use of the 3mm chassis now. The prospec 4mm now looks like a crumpled card board after being hammered flat

hahahahhaha........like they always say, to join the gang I have to "lekat pagar"at least once hahahahah.....now I am part of the gang.

Mugen cup? cant afford the training costs dude......maybe next time. On average I spend about RM85 a day on the 1/10 (fuel,tyres, and track dues) ....that is if I stay away from the fences

Hey devious, How did that set up work for you (besides the crash)??? What did you like/not like about the front one way and 50k rear diff?

How much money do you waste to prepare yourself and your car for a race ?

me first .... this is the lowest cost assuming I already have other things.

O'donnel Fuel 1gl 25% = $37
Kawahara 35 Rear x 2 set = $24
Kawahara 35 Front x 1 set = $12
Novarossi Glow Plug x 1 pc = $5
Total = $78

Highest cost could be $300 - $400 if I need to buy some spare parts and replace this and that.

Before going to race season i buy this:

Maxy's Fuel 1gallon 30% = $30
OS Glow Plug (6 pcs) = $26

And for every race I use:
Jaco Nitro Shoes Front = $10
Jaco Nitro Shoes Rear x2 = $20

Well, it is too early to say cause I hardly finish 3 tanks with the new setup but at a glance I noticed exiting a corner the car pulls harder and braking is more pronounced. I guess that caused the car to crash onto the fencing as I WOT as the car was getting into the long sweeper. The car sprinted as it was going to the sweeper and I felt the car floated a bit and understeered, before I could do anything it was on the fence and both lower arms on the right side was on the tracks and a badly bent chassis

Will give it another try this weekend with a reduced throttle EPA

Dollar for dollar

Race prep for me

Race registration - Varies but on an average RM60

Trinity fuel 3.78l - RM100
Foam tyres 2 sets - RM120
Glow plugs 3 pieces - RM54

no allowance for parts so it'll make me concerntrate better

Hmmm....looks like RC is really expensive here.

TT track it is,rcadj. I have never crashed my car on HPC's track, only at TT I do spectacular stunts and that is why I always go back there again and again to concour the track.

use the orange silicon sealer for automotive or house-hold leaks (put on both sides of the gasket and your diff will never leak again if done properly
