15 and 19 for the standard pitch that came with the car. I am not sure of the new style pitch that the MTX-4 and 4R use. The pinions are found pretty much anywhere. Check www.amainhobbies.com or on Ebay. Ebay has a TON of mtx3 parts. They are also decently priced.

looking for a good starting point in gearing my mtx3. my track is about 100x60. it's a fairly tight track. we use the pro rail track. i use a o.s. .12 tz 5 port engine. just got the nitro sedan fever. but not familiar with the 2 speed gearing. we normally keep one straight away open for speeders. thanks for any tips.

here..... mtx3 gear ratio chart.

I suggest 20T/25T pinion gears with standard 59T/53T spur gears.

Back a few posts, someone sugested to use 100,000 lube in the front gear diff. Well I pulled the oneway and made the change, and boy did this really work!

Question if anyone has run this, what lube did you use in the rear? Any other settings with this diff?

I'd have to say, I really like being able to use the breaks even if it is just to stop in the pits, but boy does it pull out of a corner!!

I always ran 100K front and 50K rear in my MTX3 and it worked great.

Was looking for some parts on ebay and and ran in to this. Thought it was a good deal but I have most of those parts, so Im not getting in on it. I don't know the seller or have anything to do with the auction, I just thought some of you guys might be interested. Auction ends in a day or so. Ebay Item number: 200234297614.
