Manticore,

Where did you get the 2 sway bar retainers? The 2 things that hold the bar in place.

What brand? Where can I purchase?

Thanks,
Puma

Default Rear Roll Center

I'm very accustomed to setting up electric touring cars, and something about the MTX-3 that I don't get. Most electric cars have a lower rear roll center. With the stock set-up for the mtx-3 the car is still loose. Why is the rear inside camber link SO REALLY low on the car. The rear of this thing does need to roll more. I hate having to stiffen the front end to compensate for the high roll center in the rear. I just don't wanna give up my steering and make this thing push. Can anybody explain why the roll centers are so high on the rear of these gas cars? Is it the high speed corners?

On another note. If you ever need to replace the front belt on the MTX-3. TRY Mugen part number D0240. It's a 6mm belt for the MRX. It fits perfectly.

Did you notice longer use or durability with the 6mm belt?

rubber tire suspension setup is very different from foam tire setup. roll centre is about camber change on suspension travel as an end result. you need less camber change for rubber tire setup and you need more camber change for foam tire setup. this is the major difference for electric and nitro.

we dont have much problem with the front belt but you did give us a great option of a wider belt.
