you'll be better off going to a forum that has specific threads..

And I wouldn't buy a MTX3 either...stay with the HPI family and get the r40 if you want a pro car...

MY SS(with RB turbo) runs really well also....but is really more of a club/parking lot racer......

im getting ready to start racing mine some thats why i wanted to hear from people that knew good setups and stuff like that and the track i will be running on is a small road course..and as for the mugen i have seen it get beat at the track by ntc3's and hpi's..i think as long as you got a car that handles allright its about the driver of the car and how good he can drive it..not how much the car costs.

I own one and have a lot of money on hop ups on it and I have raced it but to be honest this car is not for racing If you have it all stock It will be beaten rhe engine is not that great and its set to high I just didnt like it I did won a 3rth and 1rst on my local track with it but with all the noobs, thats why I bought a r40.
But to answer your question here is the set up that hpi gives:

Dedicated on-road track, smooth surface, high grip, large size

Front
Pink Pro Linear springs (#6759)
40wt Team Orion shock oil
#3 piston setting
Firm shock bladder (#72112)
Lower arm mount hole "A"
8 degree C-hubs
Woven graphite shock tower (#73047) hole #1 top, hole "L" bottom
4.5 mm ride height
2 degree camber
Team Orion foam tires 37 shore (26mm)

Front C-hubs were modified by cutting off camber link mounts and using #A317 Rod Ends at the end of the turnbuckles instead of stock ball cups. Insert a #A132 Ball pivot in each rod end, then use a #Z059 countersunk flat head 15mm titanium screw to attach the ball/rod end where the top kingpin normally goes (the stock hex cap head screw). The effect of this modification was to make the turnbuckle "captured" and allow better camber change as the suspension compresses.

Rear
Pink Pro Linear springs (#6759)
60wt Team Orion shock oil
#3 piston setting
Firm shock bladder (#72112)
Lower arm mount hole "A"
2 degree hubs, hole #1
Woven graphite shock tower (#73048) hole #2 top, hole "L" bottom
5.5 mm ride height
2.5 degree camber
Team Orion foam tires 37 shore (30mm)

Rear turnbuckle connection to uprights modified similar to front C-hubs, except the uprights were not modified. This was to add a "captured" end to the turnbuckle.

Engine
Novarossi MR12 rear port SG shaft
Associated header
Novarossi 6802 pipe
McCoy MC 59 plug
HPI Power Fuel 30% fuel
Yokomo 3 shoe clutch (for SG shaft)
Yokomo flywheel/collet (for SG shaft)
Wolfpack Radicals adjustable engine mounts (WLF054)

Body/wing
HPI Stratus 200mm body (#7416)
Touring Car Wing set, 195mm wing (#7115)

Transmission
18/23 pinion gear (#76978/#76983)
39/43 spur gear (A445/#76843)
Wolfpack Radicals clutch type 2 speed (WLF061)

Gear box
Front one way (#86122)
Heavy Duty Gears for rear diff (#A856, #A857)
50,000 wt rear diff grease

Other
Wolfpack Radicals steering cranks (WLF065)
Fiber Brake Disk #A844 for more consistent braking, place fuel tubing between the brake plates (on the screws) for consistent action

Good luck racing!
