You are probably going to want to run it MM, all the guys at my track are running their rango's and TLR's in mid, I tried running mine in RM3 and it pushed like crazy.

MM3 is a 3 gear transmission, MM4 is a 4 gear. Basically it is the direction of the motor spins that makes them different (other than the extra idler). MM4's motor direction drives the rear end down, providing more rear traction and less steering, where MM3 will lessen rear traction and increase steering to a degree.

It's a straight bolt on part. You also don't have to remove the ballstud mounts from the tranny case, but it's recommended for maximum adjustability.

you can keep on trucking, it doesn't use the stock camber link mount at all so if you did break it you can install the tresrey setup and keep running without replacing the gearbox

I punch holes in the tires and tape the holes in the rims for closed cell foams, and just use the holes in the rims (no punch) for open cell foams.

I am planning on running the blinky class. I was wondering what motor seems to work the best with the Tekin RS Pro and what gearing?

Thanks for your input.. In mm3 I have so much steering I have to dial it out. I going to try mm4 see how that goes..

Don't mean to answer for Jon, but I think his latest set-up is here:

Thanks man! That's the one. Not much has changed really except for Tresrey rear hubs and removing 1mm from the rear camber link.

Does anyone know if the TLR 22 gear diff fits?

I have already tried tthe sc10 gear diff, and just built up the durango one. I don't really like either one but DO want to run gear diff. It seems like the TLR is the remaining option, but wondering on the fitment.
