JPHRacer,

yes, the MTX-3 comes with a centax. As for foam tires, the rear uses a +2 offset is what I'm told. So the Jaco 2 offset tires will work, or the new Mugen MTX-3 line of Fast foam tires will work. I think yokomo's new 30mm foam tires are +2 off set as well (i'm not 100% sure though)

ME Student: what do you like about the car compared to your NTC3? Does the car have more steering, is it stable at high speeds in and out of turns, and hows bottom and top end speed? Give me the scoop!

CSF0623: i only ran a couple of tanks, but here is what i think...
this car handles well out of the box! with stock setup.. it handles as well as NTC3 if not better, it had a little bit of understeer in some area of the track but i still think its steering is comparable with NTC3.. it changes direction quick also.. i believe it is a little bit more stable than NTC3.. but this is just my opinion..
this car is punchy...! well..i am using the stock gearing though.. you have to put that into the consideration...
but the gearing system on this car is better than MTX-2 since you can use a bigger split between first and second gear.. so you can have more top end without losing bottom.. i think you know what i mean..

Default tires and rims...

I was at the local hobby shop today, and we were able to fit standard fast tires and rims to the car with no rubbing.... 30mm rear and 26mm fronts.... the car was a roller so the fronts might rub when servo/steering arms are on....

Well, given that at the end of that discussion, we agreed we were all saying the same thing, this now raises the possibility that we might ALL be fools.

my kit didn't have a pipe either. it has the motor and header but no pipe. The instructions didn't list a part # for the pipe so I just assumed it wasn't supposed to have one.

believe me when I got the car and saw the instructions I was ready to put on my "I'm an Offical Fool" cap.

I assumed since mrx3 uses flat pack, and this is baby brother, and I read on here that i need AAA that it just needed AAA flat. WRONG! It was a lovely job though, pro-match couldn't have done it any better.

the problem is nobody has the pack part # Robbie keeps posting. So i'll just have to get the Weller out again.

None of the kits come with pipes. Only standard manifolds.
