sometimes Juan Pablo Montoya TQs, but he couldnt finish the race...while a lot of times M Schumacher TQs and he won most races...
time to think harder a little nowadays...

Mike Swauger's win in 200 mm had ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with luck or just being reliable.

He was totally dominating the race, he lost the lead 3 times due to pit incidents and a crash and he got it back in a spectacular manner.

His car was by far the best handling car on the track and Mike drove the living crap out of it.

None of the serpents had anything for the Mugen cars in the main, they just simply looked slow.

The MTX3 is anything but outdated, it's the fastest car, period!!!

In 1/8th scale it was a different story, but as the old saying goes: To finish first, you first gotta finish !

I agree with Stefan. who cares where you qual in the A. All that matters is where you finish. Why would you want a car that is fast for 5 min. Heck ya. I qualed 1st in my race. But the car can't stay together for 30 min main. Thats what I want. Mike S. is a awesome driver. I watched him in the last Speedline race. He just made everyone look slow, Mike S. did win the Worlds in 96, was the year I believe. Oh, yeah. what car won that 10th scale race. A MTX3, Robbie Collins. He tq'ed to. Hummm. His car was not the fastest in the main. But don't have to be if the others dont finish.

So don't tell me the car is out-dated.

Does anyone have a switch mount that they can give me? I cant find my switch mount and i am putting my switch on the transponder mount. I appreciate it if anyone can spare me mount instead of buying the whole set.
Please pm me.

VeeCee, you did make the right choice. I've had this car for a month and in my first club race on Sunday, finished 2nd in the A-main. Very smooth car. Settings were stock except for tires.

Default MTX-3

Hi there guys. I am eagerly awaiting delivery of my MTX-3. Can't wait.

Just wondered what hop ups I should get. I know they would be in here somewhere but I have been so busy I don't have the time to read all the threads. So if somebody could help me that would be great.

Thanks Guys, in advance.
