factory drivers dont need hop ups at all as they replace high wear parts more frequent then we do at minimal cost. We need hop up is to prolong parts durability.

The stock MTX3 does perform well without hop up and the use of hop up has two factors:-

1/. Cool factor - eye candy
2/. performance - consistency
3/. less prone to parts breakage for rookie like me

sorry, u r not rookie.....
rookie does not know how to Modifast....

Do you personally find the lay down steering servo has any significant 'feel' in terms of attacking corners/sweepers as compared to RR? or improved lap times?
Frankly speaking, you as a 'ROOKIE' -so called , would you prefer to drive MTX-3 / RR?
Do you think you can outrun your own RR against your MTX-3, given that some other 'Rookie' is of similar Driving Standard as you?

MTX3 and RR are different car and they perform differently. for stock box kit I would say MTX3 performs much better then V1RR due to its lowest CG (belt car) and weight advantage.

Is that two factors or three?

I raced last year with the S60 and now with the new Stratus. I personally could not tell the difference when I swapped.

chook,

Does the carbon fiber front plate keep the body posts in the stock position?

Is the blade type rear sway bar softer or harder than the stock bar?

BTW: Nice looking ride

Default Blade rear sway bar

In full vertical position it is just a little softer.

In vertical? Is supposedly their hardest setting full vertical (90 degrees over the horizontal is their hardest adjustment)..... don't have 3racing rear blade, but I'm looking for a harder Bar.... seems that I'll wait to be available the 2.5mm Mugen rear bar.

Seems that the most requested parts of justrc and others are the lightweight pulleys, center bulkead and motor brace... probably the stock chassis is slightly weak...

Can anyone post a larger photo of the Square chassis if have one... I'm divided between Square chasis or Mugen 4mm chasis.
