PMT, now you made me curious with your chart.

I was under the impression that if you run same tire size with stock pulleys that you'd have no over/underdrive.
According to your chart, a 60 mm front and 63.5 mm rear tire give you 1.000, which I supposed is neutral.

That means the car has underdrive built into it to start with, correct?

How does the handling change in theory when you go above or below 1.000.
I've asked numerous people about these ratios, but nobody ever could give me an explanation that made sense, or it was totally contrdicting what another person told me before

So, help me out here and pleaqse make it plain and simple

Thanks
Stephen, I was thinking about your post some more and should wanted to reiterate that the overdrive ratio chart that I posted is for the 16/19 combo. This gives about a 6% overdrive ratio to the car. This is why you need to run a split to have a drive ratio of 1. With the stock pulleys you would indeed be able to run same sized tires front and rear. The advantage of the overdrive pulleys is that you can run a smaller front tire. This has a couple of effects including the following:

1) Reduces the amount of side bite on the front. Has the effect or gives the feel of slightly number steering responce and has less of a tendency for the car to traction roll.

2) Allows you to drive the car harder, more punched and allows you to use the throttel to rotate the car.

Basicaly the whole point of this is to allow you to drive the car in a similar fashion as an 8th scale car using the throttel to rotate the car and rather than having to wait while cornering for the car to straighten before accelerating, it allows you to accelerate harder and sooner out of the corners i.e. right after you apex.

Hope this helps. If you have more qestions feel free to ask.

Take it back from your friend. I don't think he's mind. After all, he got your MTX-2 for free. Man... Can I be that kinda "friend" to you so that one day I might be getting a free MTX-3?
