i am going to take a good long hard look at my car

i may have dual rate too high and the servo saver spring too tight

either way adjustments are needed

if the servo saver had given way it may have been enough to save the universal

i gotta check the dual rate i think mine is still under 100% but if i can go less i will

i think its because the servo saver is TOO LOOSE. also the steering rate will not affect it. try this test. switch on radio gear leave in center posistion and turn the wheels full lock now hold and turn the inside wheel, you will feel the cv go tight. now if you clip a board on the track and this happens the shaft will snap. the servo saver lets the wheels go further than the lock on the radio!

hello guys,
I just finished assembling my new MTX-3 and do it accordingly as pointed out here in this thread all those minor adjustment s. I also change few option parts which i think will help improve the car i.e.:-
1. lite alum upperdeck centre support
2. alum 3d machined rear brace
3. lite alum front sway bar mount
4. alum front belt centre block
5. uni-joints front
6. alum wheels hex
7. mugen-seiki teflon brake pad

I am really impressed wih the new design of this car especially the rear arm and the streering ackerman. Hopefully I'll be able to test out the car this evening.

Can anyone point out where else I can download or view other drivers' setup sheet or setting? I cant seems to find it anywhere else except for mugenracing.com..

I read the set ups on the mugenracing site and they are pretty much close to the stock setup. I am using the stock set up as a starting point and the adjustment that i have made is switch to rear 2.5 sway bar and stiff up the front sway bar a bit.

I believe it is lighter then stock, but I can not confirm this because I do not have a scale.

when will the neggative diff for the mtx3 come in.i would also like to see a front neggative diff also.since at high speeds the diffs lock up and act like a solid axle,i would like to run a neggative diff f/r.i ran a solid axle f/r setup on my old yokomo gt4 and it was great on the straights,the free roll and braking was excelent.and since the neggative diff has got best of both worlds i would like to try that setup.

i believe RR centax spring and MTX-3 spring are interchangeable. RR Hard spring is stiffer than the MTX-3 stock srping...is that so Manti?
