Your transponder is installed upside down, you may have problems with it (not counting correctly laps and other horror stories).

The power cable should be face to back and the underside part of the transponder (the one that doesn't carry any letter or led) should face to the ground. See your transponder installation directions.

I there a direct correlation(sp?) between the "A" ackerman setup and dogbone ejection/CVD breakage?

Right now i'm working on a steering limiter to prevent ejection and breakage.
I have a 3x18mm screw screwed in from the top of the steering link ball and through the knuckle arm. I then used a 3mm spacer and a locknut. The longer screw prevents the knuckle arm from rotating past the area between the upper and lower arm thus limiting excessive steering throw. The only problem is that it doesn't limit it when the suspension in under full compression(a longer screw will help). I haven't tried this mod yet but i'm confident it will work.

I'll let you guys know if it works after this coming Sunday.

Ahh Corse-R my Spanish friend, I think you need to read the AMB instructions ...

Off the AMB instructions...

Quote:
The transponders should be mounted horizontally, no higher than 15 cm/ 6 inches with no metal or carbon fiber between the transponder and detection loop.
Note :No carbon fibre, we actually tested this and it had a higher strength on the computer signal this way

This is what I was talking about before. I know 2 guys with the Square switch/transponder mount and they have problems with the transponder counting if they run at a track that uses a bridge for the loop. The CF plate doesn't let the signal travel through. Everything works fine for loops buried under the track, just not the bridges. That's why I opted to keep the plastic transponder mount and mount the switch someplace else.

Default Drag Brakes

Instead of a spring on the brake lever I used a small rubber band looped over the body post and brake lever. I couldn't find a spring and the small rubber bands works great.

Anybody know of a source for a solid front axle for the mtx-3? One ways are great but I like to have some brakes when the need arrives! The brakes with the standard brake pads have so little progressivity and and forget about using them unless the car is straight.

I also own an X-ray and found the springs to be a perfect match for the MTX-3 shocks. Xray's spring kits also come with pound and metric conversion rates with the spring kits.

why do you need to put on a rubber band?

either kawahara or AIP (JustRC) has the solid axle adaptor.

Default Rubber Band

It seems I'm having trouble getting the throttle and brake linkage right so that the brakes are complettely disengaged when going from on the brakes to on throttle. The rubber band just seems to keep the pads off the rotor better. Perhaps I need to get the teflon pads and forget this sanding and sanding of the standard pads.

havent seen this problem from the MTXers on this board...you're probably the first! why cant you get the linkage set right? servo problem? or ??? linkage should be pretty easy to hook up and stra8 forward connection..
