any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Don't use 0.8 gears for 1/8 cars...... what are you thinking ? ...... it's gonna strip, and I don't think they fit.

You can replace with mrx4 spur gears and parts :

1st and 2nd spur gears, 1st gear one way housing, 2nd gear housing.

Hi guys

If I dont want to run the front sway bar, do i just leave off the entire swaybar blade system incl mounts, leaving the shafts that hold the front lower arms in place exposed behind the bumper?

Also have a problem with the collet, it wont actually fit on my OSTG motor. Are there any collets available for this motor or do I just install the flywheel without it.

Cheers
Adrian

Simply remove the two blades and you are good to go.

I don't use front stabiliser too.

Keep the mounts just take out the metal blades--the mounts are used for up/down stops.

Hi Guys

Thanks for the info on the sway bars. Next question is how do I adjust front droop? Is it the grub screws that sit above the front sway bar mounts? Do I screw them into the mounts?

Cheers
Adrian

you can get the R cup joints or the original one way cup joints and just take your one way assembly from the mtx3 to a friend with a decent drill, and make the holes on the one way, that's what we did will all the mtx3 on my track, there are about 8 still running

Cheers Smoke. You can always throw 100000 weight into the front diff which will basically give you a spool effect with a little more give.

Cheers
Adrian

Hey guys, It seems alot of you running the MTX-3 are looking to run a spool or a front Diff instead of the front one way. Could someone please explain the pros and cons of doing this? I have always run a front one way.

If you want to use brakes dont use a front one way, I cant understand why they come out with a front on way. One ways are excellent in 540 racing where you dont need to use brakes and you can roll into the corners. I heard a spool is good for high speed motors, not sure why sorry. I use a gear diff with 100000 weight so it gives me a similiar effect to spool with more give when needed for the corners so there isnt so much strain on the car. Would love to hear the real differences though lol

Cheers
Adrian
