... and if anyone has a copy of the original MTX3 manual that would be a great help.
Cheers Paul.

I've made copies of mine, but I was planning on scanning it as a pdf file, so I can take it with me on my netbook. Once I have it done (not sure this weekend) I'll post it here.

my mtx3 r still in very good condition i have run it less than 10 time then it been retire for so long so i was planning instead of selling it i can convert it to electric, the only thing i love about nitro is the sound of the engine it feel real, but i cant play it anywhere i like, like electric car the sound r too loud to play around house. I do love it, that's the first car that i assemble it myself and it took me 2 day.
so im asking if anyone know how to convert it, or is it not worth it?

1. You need cnc machine to make alumn. motor block to mount the electric motor to chassis.

2. You need to remodel the upper graphite chassis to accomodate lipo battery and speed control.

3. You need cnc machine to make new pinion gear and spur gear.

4. The performance of mtx3 electric will not be the same like trf 416.

5. The costs of remodeling probably can reach $300 - 500. With that money, I rather buy trf 416.

I dont think its worth it. ...... Unless you want it for pleasure or hobby project, that's is your personal matter.

I have two mtx3 prospec parking in garage.

1. you need gear diff housing set ( already included in the kit )

2. you need to buy separately : ( they are same part numbers like in the rear gear diff )

bevel gear set ( planetary gear set )
outdrives for cvd
shims
gasket for gear diff housing
silicone oil diff

Honestly speaking, mtx3 still handle better with one way diff.
