On our first national meeting, was first & second.
At the 2nd national meeting, was second and the first one needed to retire due a broken bulkhead.

Depending your track conditions you'll be better with a heavier oil. Today run on my local track, went with gray springs everywhere, 42 fronts and rears (foam) and 30.000 on the rear diff w/ one-way.

If you plan to run with foams, my own experiences with the car told me that for doing a good setup of your car you don't need to go much further than the stock setup, probably some slight changes at springs, caster adjustment and probably some of front and rear toe.

Stock setup works real pretty well at every tracks I used my car.

people say use fuel tubing in the outdrives and cut your track width down <200. I've seen quite a few people try this and they still fall out. Get the mtx2 dogbones or the universals if you can.

2mm. I'd have to say that 95% of the screws are 2mm. A great thing to have would be the 2mm adapter for power drills. Saves a lot of time. Does anyone know where I can get one because I am in desperate need of one considering how often I tear apart my cars?

I saw somewhere either on this forum or somewhere else that sombody used a Trinity Reflex Sealed Receiver box instead of the open Mugen Receiver mount.

Anyone know if this is a direct fit and/or who posted this pic so I can refer to it and ask.

Thanks,
Puma

I think Cartman had a Trinity rx box on his MTX-3.
