Yesterday was the first racing day for MTX3 here and it was an international invitation race. Barry Baker and some of the top asian drivers were here too.

There were 5 MTX3 in the final. Barry was TQ (as usual). one V1R, one serpent one GT4 and one impulse pro.

Barry has got clutch gear problem. and the japanese guy with V1R got 1st place. MTX3 was at 3rd place and the thai guy with serpent 705 second with 1/2 lap faster then MTX3. The track was a football worn out asphalt surface and it is fair to everybody as it was not carried out at a permanent track here.

It is always at the TX side to determine the winner but it is a kind of indication from the population of the MTX3 in the final where MTX3 has only 2 weeks age.
I thought the Thai guy is driving Impulse Pro only, didn't he?

woa -a body makes a difference huh? What a shock! Maybe I'm not quite the fool after all... You need to post this on the V1R thread to enlighten.

Here's my thaught about how you hook your car up with rubber tires.

Win running rubber make sure the front tires are harder than the rear, also what brand and shore is important. Here are the different tires that work, Yokomo, Sorex, Proline.

Depending on the track condition dictate the shore that should be used, I perfer Yokomo 36r's and lower when racing parking lot.

If you notice that your car is hooked at one track and not at another, don't change your setup change your tire. This goe's for foam and rubber.

Drive train bind.

Take off the rear cross member and sand down brake guide, also soak side belt in WD40 over night.

Thanks for that gear lesson I stand corrected, I learned something today.

I never figuered out the final drive after changing my gears I just geared up.

By the way I talked to a friend today that said he ran the MTX-2 dog bones in the front and they fit perfect.

I found the MTX2 doggies are about 2mm longer, put 'em in the front. The front wheels make a nasty clicking sound when spun with any steering on.
Need CVs urgently!
