You have two choices:

Either pull the pads out and sand them down a fraction.

Or you can run a few tanks as it is and they should free up a bit.

Running tanks through the car is much more fun.

The solution is very simple. If it binds, then take'em off! The whole thing. Don't use brake!





Now, it'll roll very freely...

You need to use the 2 offset rear wheels.

Alright guys, i got my MTX-3 today and started building it. Im glad to be a part of this forum now. Anyways, did anyone have trouble putting that clip next to the one way, that was so hard for me. I was just wondering if anyone else had trouble. Construction is going smooth and cant wait to be done!
