Default 2nd-Gear Spur bearing

Have any of you guys having problem with the 2nd-gear spur's bearing dislodged from its housing? We seems to have a common problem of it here in my place. There is about 4-5 MTX3 owners having the same problem. Any way to solve this? Is this a production fault?

ANYHOW, I know somebody posted (can't find it) but before this thing hits the track for the first time, besides arms, what are the absolute, have to have because they might break, spare parts?? Any input is appreciated!!!!

Setups appreciated too
Foams(shores, company) big track, parking lot, VHT.
stock a couple of front belt, arms and knuckles.

the stock setup is a very good starting point for further fine tune to suite your driving style and your track. you might want to get a 2.5mm rear sway bar as well, this helps you get more steering.

the Q one has poor finishing quality. I forget what brand alloy horn I have but it does have excellent finishing and quality.

I would say, " Does that come with a MR-12, a KO propo Mars radio, along with digital servos, a gallon of 30% Byron fuel, and funds to pay for my first race ." If they say no, " Then they are smoking crack.

Don't be... The ones that come on the 705 are really not adjustable friendly. You need to physically take out the rear end and the ball diff when you adjust the ball diff because the grub screw on the other end loosens and you will end up with 2WD... Every time when you adjust the diff, you need to tighten the grub screw so that the settings don't run.

The ones that are fully adjustable externally is the FPS diff.
