the manual states to have them both mounted on the bottom of the servo horn, but if you have the carb angled at all the ball end will hit the servo.
Becoz everyone have different taste and different servos, so that's why you see some variation in how people are setting up their throttle and brake linkages.

All you have to do is finding the most possible straight line and the flatest possible line for throttle/brake linkages without hitting anything.

In my car, both linkages are on top.

I was having trouble getting parts for the RRR and had to order everything from HK.

Is there a overdrive chart available for the Mtx3?
hey dave, glad to see you have joined the mugen team, i love my car even though im not the best driver. mike runs a mugen right? he is damn good, looking forward to the race sunday, im in chicago this week so i will have one day to get my car is shape when i get back. see ya

Default top plate update

I received my 2.5 mm carbon fiber sheet from PenguinRC and went to work fabricating the top plate. I think it looks pretty good. Everything fits nicely.

It was never intended to put the fuel tank in the center. It was moved 0.5 mm to the center and 5 or 6 mm to the front (easier refueling). Trying to put the tank in the center would need a lot of modifications. The throttle servo and receiver have been moved 3 mm to the center and the steering servo has been moved 4 mm to the center.

It's not a pressure chamber, it's a big Kyosho fuel filter. And yes it gives around 2 cc more of fuel. Just what I needed to make 6 minutes between pit stops. Nice for club racing but I don't think ROAR would approve

wouldn't moving the servos inward and leaving the tank where it is make it even more uneven?
anyway let us know how it handles.....

It's actually pretty well balanced the way it is now. Using two digital scales, I got those readings:

Full of fuel --- Tank side = 844 grams, servo side = 840 grams
No fuel ------ Tank side = 823 grams, servo side = 800.5 grams

I have to wait until May to try it on the racetrack.

so that would indicate that the servo side is heavier before the mod..
or did moving the tank .5mm make that much of a difference?

my assumption was that the tank side was heavier before the mod.
