try adding more neg. camber in the rear...it will most definatly help you hook the rear up...also you could put more angle inthe rear shocks (lay them in more).

it also does this during normal cornering sometimes, i have just got used to correcting it?
Get basic mtx3 setup from mugen website. I prefer to add 1 more degree of negative camber on all four tires from basic setup. Reduce your steering EPA ( end point adjustment ).

You'll find the car easier to drive if you use the front diff or spool ( at least these two options provide some front braking action ).

So:
1) ditch the one-way (for now)
2) verify you don't have too much drag brake,
2) with your car setting on a level surface, lift the rear of the car by placing a screw driver under the rear of the chassis. You'll be placing the screw driver under the chassis plate in from the rear of the car. LIft up the chassis by tilting the screwdrive upward until the chassis begins to come up. Measure the distance the chassis plate travels upward just BEFORE the rear tires lift off of the ground. What does is measure?

does anyone have any idea how to determine if the front one way bearing is busted and how would you normally clean them? I think mines busted cause it tends to vere to the left all of a sudden at high speed.

mate, your one way cup should be turning to one side only not back and forth...as for maintenance i just wipe the internals with cloth and put a dab off one way oil like between 2-3 races...

ur sure your electronics ok, not the cause.

to be sure better try borrowing someone else's one way and see how...

Can anyone please tell me where I can purchase the 16T Side Pulley for the 16/19 conversion?
I have the Belt but just cant seem to find the Pulley! I live in Australia too so they would have to deliver there.

Cheers,
Brett

I don't know how you purchase parts, and you might already know the following. The 16t pulley is a stock part. Order the pulley bag and you will get a 16t pulley.

thanks rcabj, I am pretty sure my electronics are in good shape, I have also checked the one way bearings, will give it another go this weekend.

But do you or anyone knows the sympton of a busted one way bearing? Apart from it going both ways would it intermitently go both ways or it just go both ways period?

Are you sure about the 16t pulley being a stock part as my plain mtx3 is dead stock and it has 19t rear side and 24t front side? the only 16t on the car is the middle front pulley.
I will have a look at it though and thanks for your input

Cheers,
Brett

The problems I was getting with a one way bearing in my monster trucks were they would work for a couple of seconds with the rotostart then freespin.
So the symtoms of a stuffed oneway could be intermittent or completely stuffed which would cause havoc in the front end of your car.

Hope that helps,
Brett

Best thing to do with one ways is take the shaft out, spray the one way rollers with motor spray to completely dry the bearing out, leaving no oil or grease behind. then use a few drops of a reputable One way Bearing oil. turn it over in your hand to get the oil around the rollers and you should be good to go. One ways in pullstarts are a problem only because the castor oil in the fuel sometimes gets out the pullstart assembly and contaminates the one way, and allows it to slip. Over 90% of problem one ways can be fixed with a thorough clean and nice clean ONE WAY OIL. Im using xray one way oil (all the lhs had at the time) and the stuff works awesome, although for that price it should!

You are correct what you need to do is move the 19 and use a 16 from the stock pack of assorted pulleys, you can not buy the 16 but the pack is only $4-5. T0221
