Haven't raced an official sanctioned race, but put more than 4 hours on laptimes testing the new pulley scheme. Car handles slightly different, but feels more agile on turns (more than stock), gets into the turns harder and tyre wear is better than with the stock pulleys.

Car feels better for mine personal prefs (drive on part time their big broter MRX3), probably because the chasis gets inclined to the front axle (beware with the ground clearance). Definitely, with floating rear pod, with Lola body will perform much better.

Tried with different tyre splits and for me prefeer to use 3mm with 3.5mm feeling is almost stock, with 3mm steering is a little more agressive.

Default Corse-R,

you know, this for me is kind of a flash back.

I'm originally from Germany, and when I started racing in the mid '80's, I had two buddies who started doing the same thing you are doing right now.
Finding a special part here and there and selling it to friends, at races, etc.

First it was only doing favors to others, then they became known to more peole........

Their names are Juergen Lautenbach, founder of LRP Electronic and Gunther Muerdter, founder of GM Racing.

I'm still in touch with both guys, and trust me, they've made it..

So let's see where Corse is going from here

Hi all MTX-3 guys,

I am ready to order these as spare parts, If there is anything else will break most easily and i should keep as spare ? Please advise.
For Dog Bone... u guys use o-ring or just replace w/Universal?
If Universal which brand you guys recommand 3Racing or Mugen ? Mugen Price is double.

Front/Rear Upgright
Front/Rear lower arm tower
Front A-Arm
3 Racing Universal or Mugen Universal ?

Anything else ???

Very appreciate

Front Universal-----------Mugen for sure

Rear lower arm ususally break often if you clipped your rearend to board.
Front arm, I never broke one, and you need rear upright as well, also get some more spur gears for 2 purposes. One more gearing to choose from second if your engine is not lined up straight then 2nd gear spur will strip easily

Hehehe.... could be real good, but simply I'm a weekend warrior and when I find some interesting parts that worth simply show them and offer, don't make profit with them. Only 'advantage' I have is the HS sometimes will pass me for free something (probably a disk, some clutch shoes or similar) not real business with this.

BTW: Many years ago when I was younger (and badder) ran Electric Off Road and know who I crashed on an EFRA GP ran in Valencia (Spain)? Mr. Jurgen Lautembach, came with Stephan Oberle and many others... let me see if I find those old photos... Was on year 1990.... (sheeesh! how old I'm getting )

Nah, we are not getting older, we are getting wiser, faster and mature enough to run a 30 minute main w/o messing up in the first 5 minutes.

Women get older....

How old are you Corse? I'm 40.

Yep.... time ago couldn't complete a 30 minute main, now if the day is fine can run several hours until something like this occur:
- Run out fuel. (nasty)
- Broke something that I don't have spare part. (nastier)
- Blew an engine (nastiest, but carry spare part... )

Huh! women getting older? If you want to run into problems say to a woman and see how they make your life worse (like making you to sleep on the bathing tub, sleeping on the sofa, fighting with the dog for it or worse...)

Just made the 30, but sometimes feel like 50 and sometimes like 15 y.o...
