I can actually get a really good deal on a reg kit, so what parts are in need of imediate replacement.(i.e. hop ups) or is the stock kit good enough as it is?

By the way, anyone looking for a Nitro TC3?

The stock kit, well built and set up is very competative. The pro kit just has most of the upgrades you will want.

I am a newbie to nitro-foam tire stuff! please help.

thanks O.R.
i am not running the mtx-3 anymore, but when i didnt run the 19/16. put a 23t (from serpent) in the front pully and leave the back stock. run a one mm split. it is better than the 19/16. probably all mugen team drivers are doing this.

Sorry but none of the guys I no are doing this, all we ever run are the stock pully's, we never use anything from another car to make our cars re-act different.
We normally run a 1.5mm splint in the main, front tires staring out smaller.

Sony have a 1.100mah AAA cells ... very good ...

Default batteries

I managed to solve my runtime problems. I stuffed in two 2000 mA Li-Poly batteries in my Mugen. I'm now getting 2 hours run time. I used the Novak Nitro servo regulator[ cool blue light] . That nocked down the voltage. The weight is 3 grams more than the stock 750 mA. HAYWYRE

They are doing it over here in Europe a lot. Seems to work better with the 16/19 conversion.

Be careful with the regulators. They have a tendancy to stop working. When this happens they short and the receiver gets a sudden 8.4v burst which goes through and destroys digital servos.

Kawahara (K781) works great on tight parking lot tracks.
