Now I gotta yank the Yanker off my RB wow that RC10GT gonna really fly now.How Big should the Wings be for it? !Had a Problem with the Motor mount screws backing off... Longer Screws or the 4mm mounts? Seems like a 3x12 would be a better screw then the stock 3x8 But I Like to Go big on HP anchors. Has anyone else Had Problems with stripped screws/Screwholes anywhere on the MTX3? Seems like a bad place to go cheap on such a nice kit.
I did not have any stripped screws but a few under the chassis came loose a bit. I changed to 3x10 ones and it held again, I think the problem is that I was over tightening them as I did rebuilt the car. Go easy on the car!!!

What I think is this ... take it easy on the corners and you will make up for the extra weight. Too light a car and it will not perform well on high speed tracks. Let's face it the power to weight ratio is mad enough on our cars so what will a few tens of grams shaved off really do? Driving skills will surpass the weight issue. Darn ... better start to drive on the racing line consistently!!!

You can e-mail them on the specification and they will customise the battery for you. I got them to do the pack for me coz my soldering skills aint that great. I cant exactly remember the guy's name, I think its' Thomas. Just tell them that you are planning to use it for your RC car and they will know coz they make sell lots of them to rcers. Just remember to tell them the bat type and plugs required.

I got myself some cheap wall charger too, cant remember the price but it charges the receiver pack and TX batts too. Too bad it only pumps 60maH...... but heck I dont need to charge the batts all the time, just top up.
