For the rear diff I tried 40k, 60k, and 80k.
I run on a medium traction track without any surface treatment or additive.
With 40k the car changed direction a bit faster in the technical part but was too nervous in the fast part. Also acceleration and corner speed was a bit less.
With 80k the car was nice and stable and had good acceleration and corner speed.
If traction is high enough I think 80K is a good setting to start with.
Next day traction was a bit less so I went back to 60k. With 80k the rear was sliding too much causing a lot of tire wear.
In 2015 I want to try 80k again but with more flex at the rear of the car.
The rear end of the MTX-6 is extremely stiff compared to other cars because of all the carbon braces.
For the front I tried 300k, 500k and 1000k.
With 300k I missed on throttle steering in slow and fast corners.
With 1000k the car was really good in the fast sweeper and during braking, but change of direction was too slow and not enough steering on corner entry.
500k gave the best balance and gave the best laptimes.

i used the 1/8 on my mrx5wc, blitz is giving no worse performance than pf's.
The only Blitz body I liked is the RS4. It still gives good laptimes and it is worth trying on a big open track since it has the lowest drag of all body's thus boosting top end speed and reducing fuel consumption.
But this year I didn't use it anymore because on all the tracks I was faster with the SRS.
The other good alternative is the SRC Spark. It rotates very nicely and is defiantly worth trying if you are running on a track with a lot of hairpin corners.
