I would go a lot thicker on the front diff. If in fact your track is low traction, a spool would be better (It will make the car easier to drive). A diff, especially that thin, will give too much rotation in the middle of the corner, and not enough drive coming out. If you dont have a spool, go as thick on the oil as you can, say 200k-500k.

I'm chewing up gears on MTX-4R. Specifically second gear. At first it looked like my throttle servo was pulling too much and causing a little flex in the chassis so I adjusted my EPA and that seemed to solve the problem. But now I've gone through two more in two days. My mesh looks good and I've had some other more experienced people look at it to make sure. So what would cause this to happen? First gear has been fine but second is only lasting a handful of laps.

Thanks for your help.

It can only be 2 or 3 things. Your gear mesh, cheap ass 3 racing gears, or check your engine mounting screws they might be loose. All that crap of the mtx4 stripping gears is bull $hit. I have ran the same gears for over 2 years and only strip gears when I screw the gear mesh up.

just sharing my experience....3 races with this car, 3 different track, and i find using 30k diff at the front and rear suits me. felt neutral the car. and seting the rear roll centre in the middle works for me too...the lowest position make the car feel "too responsive" for me
