Really good meeting with the MTX5 this afternoon/evening… Finally had some of my own servos to use, Savox Low Profile (thanks to Steve for the loan of the Swana), and a new LiFe pack, full size, all fitted in nice and look good gear, but I hit the track needing to do some quick work, […]

Second real outing in Pro with the MTX5, mixed emotions about where it’s at. With the 2 hole pistons up front and 450cst oil, it’s soaking the bumps better, and it’s got turn, but still not the balance I’m after, working at finding the steering I want, and making it drive how I want seems […]

Just an in between update on the MTX5. Threw in the 12TG and took it to the track, mainly because I drilled out an extra 1mm hole in each front shock piston, and moved the shocks in one hole on the top mount, also I found some slop in the steering servo saver, fixed that. […]

It was a hell of a day in terms of pure speed and thrill for me, first time racing with a Pro level engine, 1.5hp compared to .7 or so on the TG. I did get a mild stab at speed with an old Ninja engine last year at the Pop Kerr day, but only […]

Past Friday was a rain wash out, so I was looking forward to this Saturday IC meet. Gave my MTX4 a quick clean, made sure everything was in order, stripped apart and cleaned my O.S. 12TG, and got it all ready to go, spending some quality time setting up the clutch, and with some new […]

First RC outing of the year for me, I was lacking my own transport and a working RC car for the first meet two weeks earlier, took a RC break over the new year, which meant by tonight I was aching for a drive of something RC. Biggest bugger of the week was my TOP […]

I feel mornings through daytime racing is not for me, I ventured out to do some racing, more in part to support the club when a film crew was showing up to give us some free press, but overly tired self meant I felt slow and did not so much enjoy myself, or at least […]
