but if you measure it from the end of the crankshaft you will get different measurements between a OSTZ and a N12LL3 as the crankshaft isnt the same length from the bearing out, measure it from the end of the flywheel nut

There's actually one from 3Racing with +1mm offset, but it's made for the RRR, I reckon it SHOULD be usable? Look for part no. KV-008A at www.3racing.com.hk

This is from 7.489 to 6.062 ( 1st gear ) and from 4.973 to 4.235 ( 2nd gear )

* I'm concern with 1st gear more, going from 7.4 to 6.0 *

This is for upcoming sunday race, April 9.
Are you trying to promoting that track? lol just kidding

The Side Belt (Urethan) or Side Belt (Rubber) can be used 23T or 24tpulley?

They both work, but the Urethan belt can be a little tight on the 24T, the 23T pulley is practically un-usable anyways, so as the manual suggested, Rubber is still better choice even tho it may be a little lose (so far no one is having problem with it tho), but the operation is smoother and easier to change to the 25T if needed.

In mtx3 thread, some says it's better to use 23t so the rear tires don't wear as fast like using 24t. The front is spinning little bit faster with 23t.

In mtx4, some says to use 25t instead 24t. Isn't that strange ? 25t is slower front wheel drive, right ? Is there any reasons for using 25t instead 24t ?

the person calculating the inital pulley sizes and internal ratios must have stuffed up, but i must say i liked using the 23t before a stone got stuck between it and the belt , it felt like my brothers MTX-3 Prospec with the 19/16 conversion (more "pull" out of corners) (front overdrive), i think that they should still make the 23t pulley

As of last week, I already installed mtx4's 23t pulley into my mtx3.

Next month ( May ) hopefully I can fully test 23t in mtx3.

This weekend, it's mtx4 going to its first race.

Christ, what's your comment on very low gear ratio ( my earlier post ) ?

Your right... I just checked the length of the spring nut and its at 1.1mm and 9mm when measured from the top.

If you eliminate your switch, you will have to either plug some sort of extension into your receiver to go to the battery, or leave the receiver cover off so you can get to the receiver every time. Many of the team drivers do not put the cover over their receiver, but I always use it.

When I need to buy a switch, I go through a lot of them to find one that is hard to move. This helps prevent the switch from moving during a hard impact, and so far it hasn't happened since I started being picky about the swtich tension. One time I did have an extension go bad on a gas truck that caused me to lose power. After that, I would buy a switch, open the thing up and put a longer set of wires on so I did not need an extension.
the best thing to do when using a switch which i think is a must is mount the switch so the on position is facing the front of the car so if you hit something the impact will only push the switch to the front so it will never turn off.

I agree with you and normally mount my switch like that.

If your running rubber tires you will want to run the 25t because the tires will really scrub off speed fighting each other down the straight. I like the 25t so the front tires only start to pull when the rear wheels start to spin.

well the in field is similar to my track but with a longer straight by looking at the track the 1st gear might be a bit low but you would have to see on the track

but by looking at it if i was to go there i would take 17/59 or 16/59 and 23/53 or 23/52 (due to the long straight),
