I think that yes i't will give you a little bit more of traction. That is if the track is a little loose..

But any quick switch backs the car will be very slow to rebound back to the other direction.

I don't use stabilizer at all, its okay....... feel aggressive like electric cars. The car get more traction and thus more body roll. However, you need to find new setup especially related with springs, oil weight, tires.

Be careful with traction roll, mtx3 happens to flip easy. You could overcome the flip problems with lower ride height, softer springs, lighter oil weight.

It was alot closer when it got stuck todayin the main. Do these measurements sound right?
had the same problem, 2 speed getting stuck within the 2d gear housing, just tight the 4mm set screws a little.
mine are separated more than a milimeter, it is new, it's just the 2 speed aluminum housing with wear!

what brand foams are you guys using on your MTX-3? I just ordered the Fast foams for mine just trying to find other alternate tire sources.

22dasher,

I run GQ foams on my MTX-3, they work well and wear real good too, just one guys opinion...I ran them before they sponsored me so you can take that for what it is worth
