I use the LRP 1700 LiFe battery and I get almost a whole weekend of racing on a single charge! And it has a long battery wire on it. I can run my wire in the car anyway I want to make it easy to get to for a recharge without taking the battery out of the car.

hello
The "problem" of the batteries (if you want to call it problem) has been under attack in the side of the radio plate, which does not decrease much just because it does not affect the 'attack is the radio plate.
from my tests, which use low profile servos, batteries should not exceed 60g and possibly reduced in size.
Unfortunately you do not get lipo / life that meet these requirements in order to perfectly balance the machine and have a decent charge time.

Hey! I Just raced my MTX6 for the first time today. I'm running a box setup. I have oversteer in the middle of the turn and when I accelerate. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Thanks!

Default On power steering

Check your front droop. If the front shocks are too limited from extension there will not be enough weight transfer to the rear which result in a "twitchy" car while "on" power. Basically allow the front shocks to extend more by adjusting the droop and take some of that steering out while on power. Try and back the droop screws out a half turn and see how she feels. This adjustment will also give you a bit more bite. You could also raise your front roll center/ lower your rear roll center to pull some more steering out of it. Keep us posted.

Take some steering out from the dual rate before you make any changes on your setup.

Thanks for the help. I did what you suggested and it worked. I also moved the weight forward and it helped as well. Best!

hello
first of all put the front droop to 1.
if not enough lowers the front differential of up to 300,000.
Ackermann: use the plate 9 and all along.
the rest as a set-up kit.

Hello and let me know.

Hello and let me know.

Got it. I will try is as well. I put the front downstops at "0" and it worked great.

Has anybody had issues with leaking Diff's? My Diffs leak a bit and I'm not sure if it is because I'm overfilling. Someone suggested using a double gasket.

Thanks!

Regarding the mid corner oversteer:

If you have mid corner, off throttle, oversteer you have too much weight transfer to the front. So this needs to be reduced to cure the issue.

The things I would try:
-Less rear droop, so a higher rear downstop value.
-Harder front spring
-Thicker front shock oil

All of these things should also improve initial acceleration since the car is more flat.

You could also try a thicker front ARB.

By increasing the front droop it could cure the problem because it allows more roll before the front inner wheel hits the downstop and starts losing contact.
But in theory this is not the best solution to your problem.
It will reduce on-throttle oversteer.

Regarding the differentials

I also found the rear diff to be leaking a very little amount of oil, it's sweating a bit.
You can either replace the paper gasket every time you open the diff, or like I did apply a thin layer of liquid silicone gasket on both sides of the paper gasket.
This stopped the leaking for me.
The front diff doesn't leak, probably because of the thicker oil in the front.

Thanks for the answer. I will try it.

Another thing about springs. There are three options for springs, black, yellow and silver (kit).

T2505 Front Shock Spring (Silver): MTX6
T2506 Rear Shock Spring (Silver): MTX6
T2507 Front Shock Spring (Black): MTX6
T2508 Rear Shock Spring (Black): MTX6
T2509 Front Shock Spring (Yellow): MTX6
T2510 Rear Shock Spring (Yellow): MTX6

Which of them is softer and harder and do you know the Lbs that each of them have?

Thanks again!

I use some very fine wet and dry sand paper and a sheet of glass and I sand the face of the dif housing there are some slight mold marks..
Also I used a gasket sealer that's for gear boxes. Loctite make one called flange sealer, it stays soft.
If I don't do this they leak...
