The easiest way to mount the engine is to remove the belt and belt tensioner and chassis stiffener, and slide the engine in from the side. There's no way for it to go in from the top.

Like the old car, the diff casing bag include the front diff case as well. You will need to buy the outdrive and pins (same part number). For a diff, then you need cross pins and diff gears as well (same part number). There is also a molded plastic piece to make a spool out of it.

It's not so bad,

1 side belt
2 screws for the belt tensioner
2 screws for chassis stiffener

Having an electric screwdriver helps a lot

What do you care, Dan? You already got the RRR.

Ellis and I are still up in the air.... depends on who give us a better deal. We might be sporting RRR WE or MTX4 next year.

A German team driver who testes the car over the weekend told me that it has heaps of steering with the rear end still being planted.

Sounds good to me....

Nope...

Did you use the wrong belt?? its suppose to be the belt in the option bag with the red piece of paper that shows the gear ratios.

and use the 24t front side pulley.

noticed there is a optional "long" rubber belt... The one in the kit is standard length... It must design to run on loose belt. I assume that is to combat the tight drive train on the MTX-3. Unless you are running a spool, the side belt does not take that much stress.
