The MTX3 foams seem to rub more than the normal GRP foams. Im pretty sure this is because the internal diameter of the rim on the MTX3 foam is actually considerably smaller than the other GRP foams. Check the rim size on the MTX3 foam compared to the other GRP (Fast, Ellegi) foam.

Speaking of one-ways.. does the MTX-3 come with std gear diffs only? or a oneway? hehe..

-Troy
It comes with a oneway plus it includes front diff cases in which you have to buy the outdrives and internals seperatly if you want to run a front diff.

you need two fine point ball pen to pull the ring ears apart and put it on the slot. I do think it is not worth to buy that tool just for this purpose.

Henry did it with this method.
Snap ring pliers are only a few bucks at automotive parts shops or even Sears.

Im contemplating getting the Hitec standard digital servos, HS-5475HB , just to save money. They are really affordable. Can anybody vouch for them or otherwise stear me clear?

But then I've also been thinking of just spending a little more and getting the Hitec HS-5645MG digital high torque servos. They have significantly greater torque than the standard Hitec digtial servos. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks Cartman,

Can anyone recomend me an affordable charger for charging the receiver packs and for charging the stick packs for the bump starter? I've been looking at the Duratrax Intellipeak chargers and also some of the Integy chargers. Sorry for the really novice questions. I'm still trying to kind of sort out all the stuff that I'm gonna need to buy.

I was thinking this charger looked good... any thoughts or suggestions?

If all you will doing with it is rx packs & packs for the starter box, then Duratrax Digital Intellipeak will be fine. I wouldn't put big money out for a charger unless you need it for other, more precise stuff. There are quite a few relatively inexpensive chargers out there that will meet your needs.

The one you posted will probably be ok..Personally, I like to have a readout.

thanks teq, I really appreciate the help.

btw, at what charge rate should I fast charge the mugen 730 mah receiver packs at? 4.5A? 5A? 6A?

What is the best way to go? Trickle charge the night before or fast charge at the track?

Again, sorry for the novice questions.
