Anyone remember the spider mk 2.... now that was a real touring car... none of these fancy gadgets like todays plastic fantastics...
Like those bumper stickers:

"Classic not Plastic"

I would have to agree with you there. Kyosho made a great car. It's faster than my mugen..(with freefallgirldriving.) And you know what is a great off road car? The Tamiya Frog.. Nobody could keep up with that car.! (wonder when the 710's get here?)

Well fella's i got some "real world" duribility test's ive gotta say about the mtx 3. It's strong as hell.. Racing today i put FFG into the wall at full throttle,and the only thing happened was a dented stinger on the rd pipe. That was after 4 to 5 cartwheels and then my car hitting the wall. my car caught the dented stinger and FFG lost the antenna tube and broke a wheel. that was it. The mugen's held up awsome. If it was the ntc3 it would've exploded.. FFG is still mad at me for "hacking" her but you guy's had to have been there to see how she was trying to psych me out.. Ill let her explain...

Being Fairly new and not knowing in R/C. Whats the diff in Graphite vs Carbon fiber in parts? Weight Flex tensile strength?I have gone thru all this in Fishing Rod Blank Composite evo Fiberglass Graphite Composites Carbon came in but never really took the place of Graphite too stiff.Is there a marked advantage of graphite over Carbon?

You are right Fisher, Shamano Rod's had a limited span with carbon fiber, but because it was too stiff,and the lack of sesitivity, fadded out those model's. Graphite take's more material to be as stiff as carbon fiber. But with radio trays being so thin they both flex. I would not be able to tell the diffrence with the two because for what stiffness is needed graphite is fine. It's a little easier on the wallet too. I hope this help's because it's 3am here and FFG is typing this..(dont worry Fisher Im cofused..).R.
