i have mine pretty tight, but what i do is drain a drill battery by putting the outdrives in the drill and the other end in a vise (loosely) then i just run through a battery to ware the diff in. then i swap which end is in the drill and do it over. then the diff works just fine

I dont think MTX3 has such poor building quality. you need to built the diff according to the instruction and you should have a good diff that doesnt need any run in

Many thanks Manticore, I'll check the drive nut when I'm doing my full stripdown this week.


Can you get the rear suspension arms with the bearings?



Many Thanks

Manti, i think he's referring to the hop up we discussed earlier. He was wondering if you could get the rear arm with the bearings in it to ride on the hindgepin

I like the CNR head, works like a charm. After going 225-235 on the stock head, I now get around 205-215 consistently. Too bad the thing is real big. I had clearnace issues using the CNR with my RD Logics NTC3 pipe. But it sure is lighter than the stock cast heads. Might try a Nocer, Kawahara, or Carlsen next.

I hope I don't go hop-up crazy like Manticore but with my spending habits and all the aftermarket support Mugen has, I just might do that.

that's up to you whether to do hop up or not and that is the money in your pocket.

same here, that's my money in my pocket and AM I wrong going after those you called it crazy hop up??????

I only go for performance hop up but not eye candies. every part that I choosed have their own function and gain in performance.

If you dont like them, just pass on and stay calm.
