the oblong hole where the tank fits does not have four straight sides, there are lumps where the gromets are (front and rear ). file these away!
ahh...i c, already had them filed during first assembling...no wonder my tank is in good shape...

Yep! noticed it, when I was assembling the car and with the experience on the MRX3 wanted to change at least the 1st gear pinion for one made of steel rather than aluminium. Was quite mistaken, here the pinions lasts a lot.

At least on 1/8th scales if you want to have a decent pinion life you might use the 1st made on steel, if not, start to wear at almost realtime when the coating is gone.

For those of you whom wish to gain more speed and run time, may I introduce you to the "Turbo Fanned Venturi Adapter".

eddie - The term ''carb restrictor'' comes to mind.

That reminds me of those old "tornado" doo-fusses for street cars.

ran against another guy who was on Full Diff setup (Front/Rear) with Foam tyres..!! he was blistering fast and i could barely keep up...!
Isnt Full Diff setup works only with rubber tyres? Anyone tried Full Diff setup with foams before? How does the handling differs from One-Way + Rear Diff?
