Why you using 1mm offset if you can adjust your track width?

even if track width is adjusted the rims are too close to the c-hubs and if the car hits something the rim is destroyed.

Avoid hitting your car.

I have run mine around 196-197 and it was ok. Much more steering. You need to run the rear a little narrower too though. Rear shouldn't be more than 2mm wider than the front in my opinion. On tracks with a lack of traction this is a way to make the car feel like there is more than there really is. For a really stuck track, you wanna run it about as wide as you can get it though to avoid the dreaded "traction roll."

Thanks Chris...

I prepare two cars : I'm going to test them on saturday

mtx3 with 21/58 and 27/52
mtx4 with 21/59 and 27/53

mtx 3 and 4 use different pinions and clutch bells. If you try to run the same ones, your gearing will be way off.

I know scott...... , what I do is extreme. I'm installing the engine + clutch + pinions from mtx3 directly to mtx4. I'm going to test very low gear ratio for top speed. If the engine bogs down drastically, then I have to switch car to my old trusty friend mtx3 with 21/58 and 27/52 gearing option.

I guess I'm the first to test very low gear ratio
