Wow, I can't believe there's so many MM's (compared to the number of RM's)!

I was just browsing through the last 15 pages and all I see are MM's, and maybe two RM's :P I run an RM myself.

thanks for that info. will have to look into those options!

apparently, the RM turns a lot sharper than the MM. Do you compensate for this? Do you find the MM 'less twitchy' than the RM?

Switching from RM to MM?

Hi folks,

I'm considering switching my MR to MM style chassis (for my MR02). However, other than changing the body, I'm not sure what parts are needed to do the switch to MM?
