Receiver is inside the cover.

Antenna & transponder are in one piece plastic above the steering servo.

Default Overdrive Ratio

I need some guidance,please, on overdrive ratio. What are the benifits in handling, and how much do I need? Maybe there is a thread addressing just this topic?
Thanks

Overdrive means front tires is rotating faster than rear tires. More pulling power ( forward traction ) at front tires when on throttle ex. getting out through corner / sweeper. The benefit of overdrive is to pull the car out of corner faster ( in case rear tires loss forward traction ).

Secondly, you need 2mm - 2.5mm tires split ( front tires are smaller diameter than rear ) otherwise you put too much stress on middle belt because front tires are rotating faster rate than rear ( dragging the rear ) on straight lines.

I can't give you the best overdrive ratio number because truly I don't know.

I was using 23t front side pulley for today race...... some say it's almost 1:1. It was great handling with 23t pulley during the first 20 minutes in final, but after 20 minutes the rear tires start losing grip and hurt my confidence when taking corner at high speed.

Default Overdrive Ratio

asw7576 thank you for your help, I understand the principle now. I guess during the second half of your final you had too much overdrive because the rears wore faster than the fronts?
That is some awesome track, where is it?

what a pain trying to find everything to assemble a front diff for this kit......

buy a part here, buy a part there, wait for this part to be in stock.... ughhh..
I think I've paid more for shipping on parts than I have the parts themselves.
I'm down to the last part... sja2.6x6..

on a tight track there is pretty much no difference between the 2 but if you put time into a MTX4 you can get it to go a bit quicker than a 3 but if you not being left behind stick with a 3 , but then again its always nice to have the latest car out
