Pure Hobby MTX-5 EP conversion

While here in Bangkok, Pure Hobby Distribution have shown us their all new brushless conversion set for the Mugen MTX-5. Designed by World Champion Robert Pietsch it allows the owner of a MTX-5 chassis an inexpensive way to test indoors during the winter season. Utilizing many parts from the gas car, the kit will include less than 20 parts to complete the conversion meaning you can use the same spares as those on your gas car as well as your old foam tires that are too small for gas racing, but which are perfect for indoor racing on carpet. The car will use a standard 540 type motor and is recommended to be used with a 3S 11.1V battery for maximum power. All together the car weighs in at 1500 grams. Available in the net two weeks through Pure’s distribution network, if popular they will broaden its release.
