Default MA rating on a stock mugen battery pack?

Hi, just bought a 2nd hand mtx-3 which comes with the mugen receiver battery pack but not too sure on how many Milli amps it is so could someone clear that up for me? Cant wait till i get it charged and rocking!

Regards.

It should be either 700 or 800 mah. If it is made by Mugen, then it should be 700. I believe that is the highest they went. If it is RD Logics or another brand, it is probably 800.

with the 1.0 or 0.8 metric gears, the number is the size of the teeth, on a 1.0 gear, the "valley" of 1 tooth will be 1mm from the "valley" of the next tooth. Same for te 0.8 except the distance is 0.8mm. There is a difference between sizes. I am looking at a 57 and a 59 tooth 0.8 gear right now and the 59 is maybe a half a mm larger in diameter. These are stock mugen gears also, not the 3Racing ones. Scott, it think the 59 is the one I got from you at Reveletions.

The only place I have run White springs was at Revelations. I ran white in the front and blue in the rear.

I measured the diameter of several spur gear and have found only differences that I could say is tolerance. I measured 8 different 1st gears and 9 second gears and had less than a .25mm diameter difference between them. I found some 58 and 60 tooth spurs that were the same size.

There is no harm in keeping the same splits, but Robbie was the one who told me this. I asked him to grab a caliper and prove it, and he did. I also then checked mine for myself and I am convinced its ok now. During our last race I ran a 3 tooth difference at one point.


The mugen receiver pack 730mah

Add a little more camber to rear of the car, This will plant the rear.

Try Rear first.

You don't have to copy mine. I don't use front and rear stabilizer even in high grip situation.
