Corse-R: we are considering a solid axle for the rear, but we are not sure yet.

we are using United States Postal Serives, www.usps.com
EMS around 3-5days or Global priority around 4-6days, both are very safe.

Thanks.

I swear for a solid axle. Actually using 50000wt on my rear diff and wanting to lock with blue tack, but prefeer a real solid axle (less rotating weight).

corse-r have you tried 100,000

i guess either you run on a really large track or really like alot of steering

at least it turns better than mtx-2

i would like to see a ball diff for mtx-3 maybe even for front and rear that would be great for those of us who run on smaller tighter tracks

My local track has slightly more than 210Ft of backstraight with lots of grip (run with 40's and tried 42 at rear). Best lap was done on 20,05 secs by Barry Baker last August (Reedy International). No... not like a lot of steering, run B ackermann and almost stock setup, but love how reacts with a solid spool.

I think ball diff can not handle that kind of power from a nitro engine, ball diff works really good on EP besides if fuel gets into the diff itself the it will become very inconsistant!

Stick with the regular sealed gear diff or wait for Kawahara comes out with a negative diff!

Just my $0.02

the 2 permanent tracks near me have shorter than 130ft straight some of the parkinglot tracks go bigger but still under 200

i tried a solid rear on my ntc3 at our sedan nats in ohio it was a little hard to handle i chose instead to run rear diff all the way tight then after nats i chose to get rid of ntc3 all together to many reliability issues

i also use close to stock setup havent changed ankerman cause i have no idea what it does same with rear roll center i have no clue

a roll center vs b vs c what is the difference i switch to c because of damage to b during runaway accident

ah10 i hear what your saying about the inconsistency after all i owned a ntc3

but if those issues could be resolved by better design you have to admit it has advantages like unlimited adjustability and lightweight

That's perfectly true on unlimited adjustability and lightweight, but I would rather sacrifice ajustability and weight for inconsistancy and something that would last 2 heats and one 30 minutes main! Dont u think so?

ah10 i know what you mean

hopefully in the future it will be resolved by technology and using a ball diff will become feasable

maybe if they used ceramic balls and rings then somehow found a way for the setting to hold true like possibly 2 lock nuts or something and sheilds like the xray diffs to keep the grime out

for now i guess i will have to stick with gear diffs the ntc3 really needed to be checked almost every run
