From softest to hardest:

- Purple.
- Blue (Stock on MTX3).
- Gray.
- White (Stock on MRX3).
- Pink (only rear).
- Red (only rear???? seemed to see a red spring set).

If plan to buy some springs found on the MTX3 works quite well with Blue and Gray, whites are probably too stiff and only suit on quite particular track conditions. Purple are too soft for normal conditions (have a set, but probably only work on wet, dusty tracks or the ones who uses rubbers use them. On foam aren't normally used).

Mugen Fast are the same type of foam as Ellegis with the same disparity on shore ratings (quite close but not exact, probably be +/-2 shore degrees between batches).

I tried, but can't seem to get thru the 1st 100 pages...

What's the deal on the front dogbones? What;s the best fix, is everyone using the MTx2's or CVD's?

Thanks

I think that using the "A" ackerman plus a loose servo-saver setting allows the inside tire to turn too much allowing th bone to fall out. This seems to happen only whene you hit something or land off a corner dot.

I tried using O-rings and fuel line but the best seemed to be a pen spring cut to length.

Default Lola body's

Our club is going to try and have a few Lola body races to break things up. We will no doubt use a yokomo and wonder if there are lower shock mounts for the mtx3 to make it work. The Yok truck would have worked w/ no mods but not everyone agrees with the looks of it even though on our tight track it will no doubt work great.

i am using the axle from a mtx3 outdrive with a mtx2 universal bone attached

i had problems breaking the mtx3 universals

i am using a spring on the negative side of the brake linkage when the throttle is opened the linkage pushes against the spring and opens the brake as far as possible for no drag

the mtx3 has a stopper on the brake lever so it only engages breaks one way the mtx2 ddint and if you pushed the lever back it would engage the brakes but mtx3 is better

it works really well

my brakes used to drag on the mtx2 so i figured since i could do this on this car i would

dont want brakes dragging while running a one way so evry extra percaution is worth it especially when its almost free and so easy to do
