Hi
This probably has been asked and I'm going to ask again. I race a MTX2. Lately, I've had a bit of trouble getting parts. Many of them have been BO for more than three weeks. I'm not a noob and I don't hit the boards very often. I hardly ever need to be marshalled. I just stick to darn close to the boards and sometimes I clip and break. The guys at the club are on my back because I missed two races due to a lack of replacement parts. Some want me to get a NTC3 and others say Serpent 705. That's about what everybody runs, I'm the only one racing with a Mugen because it's very fast, I know this car well, I love the feel of it and want to continue with Mugen.

So here are the questions, Is the MTX3 really superior, are the parts easily available. I just want to know if the upgrade is worth it.

Thanks.
It seems that parts availability is your main problem!! you should check if you will be able to get parts for mtx3 first. Otherwise, you will be in the same trouble.
Cheers

seriously, manti, the rear shock tower looks just like the stock one. Perhaps, another shot at different angle?

Manti, I brought back two versions of the Kawahara Chassis. If you can choose, which one you prefer: 1st version 4mm or the newest 2nd version 3mm one.
