Default offset tires

What off set tires are recommended for the MTX-4/3. I currently run 0 degree offset but it seems 1 degree would be better.

The MTX3 takes a five cell hump pack, three cells on the bottom two on the top - AAA cells.

Just like to say I put an order in for screw kits through Tony's Screws and they turned up today.
Kits are good being individually packed in zip bags with stickers on each of contents, Tony's communication was excellent and his delivery was in a timely manner.
I highly recommend him.

Thanks Tony,

Brett

Silly question to some, but what way does the off set go ? Does it take the rim farther out from the hub or what ?

Yes that is correct.
I always found the car seemed to steer better( more turn in ) with 1mm offset on the front and 2mm off set on the rear.

I guess when you change the track width on the car. Buy winding front pivot balls out.
Making the front arms longer changes the front roll centre and gives more turn in.

Default Rear Pivot block help please

I have bought an MTX3 off eBay. On sripping the car I noticed that the rear pivot blocks are 'A", the manual calls for 'B'. I have the B blocks. I guess my question is which one should I fit?? If I understand correctly the 'A' blocks should lower the roll center, and give me more chassis roll and thus more rear end grip.
Is this a correct assumption, I am not too clear on roll center?
Thanks in advance

The mtx-3 was design to run on the 2mm offset . You can run any tire you want , the differnt offset changes the leverage on the arms but just tune the car to your likings

Yes, you are correct, A block means lower RC and more body roll and thus more rear end grip. However, I find A rear block also cause the car to rotate slower at medium to small corners.

when you run either front or rear more narrow it will create more traction .So if you ran the same offset front to rear just make the front 198-199 and the rear 199-200 and you will have turn in.
