My rubber setup is similar 'cept I use a long rear camber link.
I also jump around from using and not using the rear swaybar depending on track temps. The track gets pretty hot(140+ deg.) here in Hawaii during the summer months.
Cutting the rear hubs works well as it gives alot less camber change and make the tyrs cooler as they run flatter
will post a pic if needed

There are no tires with any degrees of offset.

Offset is measured in mm (millimeters), so they have rims with 0 mm offset and rims with 2mm offset.

For the MTX3 you should run the ones with 2mm offset.

I use the wheel spacers left over from MTX-2 for my Kawahara tires, and they are fine, no rub against anything.

You've got it! I'm using the stock outdrives that came in a kit. Who makes the 1mm offset outdrives anyway? Do you know?
