i moved from a gpx4 to a mtx3 and then a prospec. the gpx4's do go well,but mtx3's are just easy

theres a local guy here who went well in one but has now moved to a rrr and he said he wont look back.

i still race my gpx4 rtr all the time and i love it. good little car

well after the runs I did on this car,I say it's a sweet car out of the box.
Set ups are easy.I got the Pro version of the car,everything is pretty cool stuffs as aspected from a Competition car.

Few things to consider to make the car better,not too happy with the tension from the frt and rear belts.They are so bloody tight even after running so many tanks on it.The Side belts are actually fine.Just the 2.
Need to find better belts.Need to free up the drive train alittle more.

The side belt tension brace,that gotta go.In need of a better brace.Too bad the optioned part did not come with the car.Good thing to have.(Next upgrade)

Frt upper arm suspension pivot shafts.They needed to be notch so the shafts won't move forward all the time.The set screws thats on the frt upper bulk heads,they can be torque in for the shafts but becarefull not to overtighten them as they strips.Having the notch on the shafts fixed the problem.

The Centax clutch is very relaiable.No problems for it except for 1 issue which the clutch adjuster tends to unscrew itself causing the clutch to engage faster till it actually stalls the motor.A little bit of tread lock fixed the problem.

Other than that,keep on racing.

I just called OFNA and the customer service told me that GPX-4 pro kit should be ready in 2 weeks if no Customs delay.

Boys...another good weekend of nitro racing.After 45 mins in the A main...this thing held up really well and brought home the win.
I'll post my set ups once I clean my ride up.
So much dirt/foam every where.

Something to think abt is to have a frt spool for this thing.The frt oneways works flawlessly.
