My Orion 1100mah nimh packs are fine and give me over a full weekends racing (without re-peaking). I realize they have almost 400 ma more than my 730, but I'm getting more than 3 times more run time. It just doesn't add up to me.
overnight charger tend to overcharge the pack and this will shorten the lifespan. I dont use the overnight charger anymore after my 1100mah pack lasted me for only 5 months where the run time reduce tremendously.
These small cells batt are best charged at automode and let the charger to detect its capacity without overfeeding them.
Sometimes, it could be the bad cells in the pack or faulty connection between cells when manufactured.

I also had to lean the motor a bit more with the Mugen compared to O'Donnell. Little less hp but runs cleaner, me thinks.
agree...
had my motor leaner during the race, no more black deposits.
motor no sign of overheating, idle good and lots of power..

any .12 motor will fit as long as the shaft is SG type. I think you should ask yourself how much power you need and you can handle it.

Default MTX-3 Options.

Outside of the engine brace and the front sway bar mount what other options are really worthwhile? I've been racing the car for about two weeks and have it really dialed in. Outside of replacing some of the plastic parts once in awhile(plastic is cheap).....what other expensive aluminum parts will really make any difference?

items to go are:
1. Center block - Sato Seiki
2. Radio Plate Support - Sato Seiki
3. Brake bracket - Sato Seiki
4. Rear Adj Sway Bar - Kawahara

other than that of the above, the rest are not really necessary.

The Murnan I have runs strong, but it's a little trickier to get the needles set right. It's much more radically modded, and maybe the bored out carb is making it more sensitive. Need to work with it a bit more.
Kevin,

It's nice to see people talk about J-tech. Jason is a good friend of mine. I run his fuel, he does my engines, and I have nothing but good thing to say about him and his products/services.

Jason also has a MTX-3 that he tinkers with.. if he gives you advice, take it.. the man knows what he is doing.
