hehe...I still need to take my MTX3 out for it's maden voyage. "The light" (NTC3) is still with me on standby. All this talk is really starting to worry me. I spent so much on the MTX3 and hate to see it go to waste again, you know what I'm talking about.

Later,
Puma (Still a NTC3 fan , just have this belted car to see what everyone's talking about)

Don't worry, the Mugens a good car, just not without it's problems. Just like every other car out there, you simply have to work thru them like we all did with the NTC3.

Fastahrry, Go to Speedtech for the TiR parts.

I've heard quite a bit of complaints on the same issue. I think it's due to the diff. cases being cast and not machined...you can't hold machine tight tolerances on cast parts....something I would think the RD Logics crew should answer how to solve. Otherwise they seem to be a waste of $$$.

So will he XTM work on the MX-3 and the Ace Jaguar?
yea i'm pretty sure it's universal. doesn't specify a certian brand. works great on my MARS.

NTC3NUT-

I think I remember, athough I can't find it...you said something about moving the servo arm on the steering servo clockwise one tooth.

I tried that a few weeks ago and it didn't give me more throw...well, it did...in one direction but took away steering in the other.

Did I do something wrong?

Thanks.

has any one tried to dremel or remove some material from the diff cases so that it wouldn't bind with the bearings?

The problem with trying to dremel material out is then you create a surface that is no longer smooth. The best and maybe the only way to fix it is to machine the material.

Mugens Use Hudy spring steel pillow balls right? if so thats likely why they are stronger because they are supposed to have similar properties of titanium
