Hey Robbie C,

Can you give me a full MTX-2 set-up for a sorta tight untreated high traction parking lot track?
I usually run a stiff set-up(with and without swaybars) with good results and tried soft set-ups with terrible results. Your'e known for liking the soft stock silver rears. How do you get away with it?
Thanks!

Sorry guys for posting a MTX-2 question on a MTX-3 thread but it's the only place I can find Robbie. A MTX-3 will soon grace my workbench soon though.

I'm sure you guys have better things to read/talk about than my missing tuned pipe.

All the best
Bloody Irish, you started it! Now have you contacted interpol to track down your missing pipe?

Jason,

glad that you cleared this pre-production hype about the tires.

Now we have one more, GEARING

I don't think any of them would have your pipe.
My car is still understeering a bit, you don't know who's got my front grip do you?
Jordan stay off the net and get that car built so I can woop your bum and collect my dollar.
