Default MTX3 vs RR

I notice many of you have both the RR and a MTX3, what are your impressions so far? Which of the two has better suspension geometry/handles better?

And does a RR with a MTX3 rear end out handle both cars?

Hey Ron, is the "locked rear axle" a solid axle? If so where did you get it from? I'm also curious on what setup you used? How was the Losi Alfa body? I'm the guy with the long hair that said "thanks for leaving me" at the end of the race.

Are you going to be out at the Silver State race? Last time I saw you at an off road track was at Extreme when they raced Saturday nights. I was with the Monise's.


Kevin, when are you going to be at Elite? I want to give you a body and talk to you on colors and designs. Thanks.

I see an image in this thread someone uses VoneRR rear floating mount on MTX3, it looks good but couldnt see details on the front side of the floating mount, I guess I want to see how he mount the rear upper arm from VoneRR so it doesnt move!
Traction rolling problems; here's things that might help solve this problem, try taking camber out of front tires, run 45 shore tires front to rear, move all caster clip to front of arms, run front swaybar at it stiffest point, and lower ther car front 3mm rear 4mm also try running the (C ack). These are the things I do when I have traction rolling problems.

Thanks Robbie. Francis M. and I were talking yesterday, and we were thinking along the same lines. I don't think I could drive Rossetti's locked axle setup comfortably, but I still might try it. Rain go away so I can go drive!

Bryan, he glued the rear diff together. I think he said he was running "30". 30 second epoxy! Right Ronbo?

Both are very good cars, if you like them both choose by parts availability.

Just replace all the bevel diff gears in your diff housing with this adaptor, Wa laaa, you have got yourself the very first Solid Axle for MTX3. No modification on any parts. Best of all the adaptor is made in Aluminum and very very light weight!
