Congrats to OFNA drivers Jeffery Lin and Marc "didn't bring the Starbucks" Cruz for putting their GPX4's in the main at the Toys for Tots. Both of your cars looked very good.

Congratulations Marc for a good race, if it wasn't for that glow plug and the pitman, I'm sure that you will get it, no kidding

Finally made my mind up. I bought this car yesterday. Like I said earlier I had a CD3 and before that I had a NTC3. This will be my first belt driven nitro vehicle. I can certainly use all the help I can get. Most of the local racers run Serpent, Mugen, and Kyosho. Looking at the recent success of the drivers of this car, I hope people start posting there successful setups here on the Tech. I really appreciate all the responses I've received up to now and especially the patient folks at Ofna and Nitrohouse. Does anyone know of any useful hop ups for this car, lightened shafts, aluminum brace, or adjustable belt tensioner etc...... and where to get them from?

thanks in advance,
three

Marc was right. The kit comes with a lot of hop ups already. Up front I will definitely have to say this is a bargain buy for sure. I will let you know more once the kit is complete.
