Thanks MCKrooz.... I am using the one you just posted... OFNA clone one version of the x12 from RB and one version of a NovaMega pipe... OFNA has advertising in just about every RC Car mag. They only show one type of x12... I know, not everyone goes through page by page looking at advertiments in there monthly sub. RC Mag... lol

I ran the HPI Stratus, didn't like it too much....Didn't seem consistent for me. I'm running the Mazda 6 now, like it much better...but i think i have the wing a bit too far forward. Tail is a little loose sometimes.

I've ran the new HPI Stratus body as well... Straight line the body is very fast, handling, I didn't like it that much. I then look at the rear wing and saw that it sat far below the roof line... I look at my Team losi Alfa body and my Protoform Mazda6 body and compared the wings height. I took a wing off a crash and burn Mazda6 body and put it on my HPI body... Wow, what a difference 2mm can make.. It still look to be at ROAR legal height, but the handling improved 100%.... Would I recommend the HPI body??? No. You can't go wrong with the Team Losi Alfa body or Protoform Mazda6...

Haywire,
I just found some 18/22 pinion gears for the mtx3 standard pitch, gives a final ratio very close to the final of the fine pitch gears without the stripping! Call acehardware hobbies and ask for Kevin.

I bought a set of steering blocks, upper arms, lower arms, pulleys, and belts, rear arms , shock towers, etc... about 140 dollars worth of parts Its been 4 months now and i still havent touched them

What ive seen other people break are steering blocks mainly. i would get a set of belts and pulleys too.
