I think that for the MT you can use the Elcon uprights, both with cable and hydro.

I know that with a Leo you have to go for hydro with the Elcon uprights.
Drop the user Apache a PM, he knows a LOT about Elcon http://www.rcuniverse.com/community/...m?memid=144982

The Elcon uprights are lighter and uses smaller bearings, this equals less unspung mass which should equal better driving...

Why does everyone call aluminum "alloy"? Its an ALUMINUM alloy. An alloy can be any combination of 2 or more metals, that could be steel and vanadium, or copper and zinc. Everyone needs to stop calling "aluminum alloy" parts "alloy", its just the wrong terminology, and it can cause confusion.

Nice way to delete my post. I did not ask if he had anything to sell. I responded to his comment on getting a good deal.

I cant stand mods that cant read and/or jump the gun on actions.

kthnxbye

yeah, but I had a post in this thread that got the boot also. I simply commented on what a good deal was and if he had any good deals laying around. Not that I wanted to buy them. Oh well, water under the bridge. Hope Jimbo and Canadian_RC work things out. Thanks Hellya
