Default Giving onroad another try. Any tips on a MTX3

Just bought a MTX3 prospec and a ton of parts.

The 3 was a good car for me. Tends to have a slight push that you won't be able to get rid of. That's why they've changed the front uprights so many times on the 4 IMO. Other than that, have fun! It's a great car.

That's right, mtx3 has natural tendency of understeering, especially in middle of cornering and S turns. The push become noticeable when you are being chase by newer cars like RRR, NT1, MTX4.

Anyway, don't give up.... and good luck with your brand new mtx3 prospec

BTW, increasing the height position of rear upright's upper arms would stabilise the car even more,.....

I love my mtx3 too.
