I see some interesting ideas here. I just got my hands on a well used mxz andhave fount that the plastic is weak garbage. For mine i was going to fiberglass the inside of the tub tovsolidify it. After that ive got an idea for aluminum plates for mounting. Brushless would be an easy converaion but i think im going nitro on mine. I have a .21 engine that fits perfect.
New bright did a good job copying the sled to the minor details. They made a bad mistake on the skid by making the limiter straps out of plastic, preventing the front arm from articulating. Also the hairpin springs are completely bogus molded things. If theyd have put it together like the real deal itd be flawless. I intend on duplicating the skid out of aluminum and making it work the way its supposed to.
Overall im unimpressed with this rc. Stock is awful. Cant wait to mod it. Im curious as to how you did your driveshaft with the bearings
