I use Serpent rear springs all around(I know snakes a mongeese don't usually go together, but they were the ones I had that would fit). I was using blue fronts and yellow rears when I got there. I had way to much rear wheel hop because of the bumpy surface. I changed to orange rears and stood the rear shock up to the middle hole on the graphite shock tower and it was perfect. BTW I use the stock pistons and 70wt oil.

Can't wait to put some faces to the handles at the GLC.

Do the belts in the Mongoose get eaten up when run on dusty surfaces? I was thinking of getting a Mongoose along with a R40 (wanted a NTC3 but the belt cars look much better).

hey guys, I m going to sell my mx-3 because it is on 27mhz and I hate the fact of having a fm radio still on 27mhz.

well I am planning on buy a JR XS-3 its synced and all, well the question is anyone know if the stock RS300 receiver fits the Mongoose?
i know the RS310 will but I am not getting one for a while and I dont want the XS-3 Pro

Default Belt or Shaft?

Dust is hard on all onroad nitro cars. But will it eat up belts ? Probably not. The hardest things on a belt car are rocks. If the surface is really dusty there are probably rocks that kick up and get into the pulleys, and the small stones and rocks that get wedged in the pulleys is what destroys belts. Shaft cars also have porbelms with dust and dirt in the drive train, but I don't know any really reliable shaft car that can take any surface that isn't smooth and very clean. The current shaft cars have real problems with drivetrains on bumpy surface that subject them to differentail breakage probelms.

it may fit, the rs310 would most likely fit better. but how it sits in the chasis i was unable to get to dials to be able to adjust channels. so that is why i went with the r200. the r200 was used in a few magazine tests and fits like the car was made for it.

There should be three weights, one for each shoe.

If you don't have all 3 weights.. don't use any. It will work, but not sure how well...
