I love my mtx3 more than mtx4.... ... it's like love story. First time I got my mtx3, I wasn't interested at all. I got it because my LHS poisoned me to jump into nitro car racing. Two weeks later in the track, I noticed other nitro cars are not built like mtx3, handsome looking, strong and good quaility. So I'm thanking myself & LHS for refering a good car. Just like magic, I decided to buy 2 more....... one for spare parts and another one to accompany MTX3 #1 .

Both MTX3 were beaten hard in the track because I was learning to drive nitro car. Now I'm almost settle with perfect setup. I think both are eager to race in 2006.

What happen with my MTX4 ? I keep it in closet

Some updates to the chassis repair. I was adviced not to hammer the chassis back into position due to the 7075 will deform if uneven hammering is done to the chassis,meaning, some parts that was hammered too hard will get flattened(uneven chassis thichkness).

Local Machine shop took my chassis and sandwich it between two mdf board pressed it with a press machine and simultaneously heating the chassis up.

It worked very vell, placed the chassis on a glass panel and the bent area was repaired.As good as new.

Hope that helps

I increase the height of rear upper link very high. I'm using three ( sometimes four ) 1mm shims. Use longer screw like 23mm. I noticed rear grip is superior now and it gets controllable slide if you wish.

My hometrack is asphalt with medium to high grip depending weather condition. Normally everyone here use 37 shores front and rear. I usually shave only front tires by another 2mm smaller and keep rear tires as is.

so addind shims in the rear upper link would increase rear grip...will try that...btw would it increase tyre wear also

and talking about using smaller front tyres , yesss it really make the car more easy to drive ( for me that is)

Make sure you have 20mm or longer screws before adding more shims. I don't know about rear tire wear rate. All I know, after 30 minutes final, rear tires were slightly conical with 3mm thickness left.

Smaller diameter in front is the key of good handling feeling IMO.

I have the 16/19 conversion so I don't need the tire split right or is it a good idea to have underdrive?

if you have the 16/19, you will need to have a 2mm to 4mm split depending on track condition. i suggest you start out with 2mm (i.e. 60mm in the front, 62mm in the rear)
