Anyway, there's 3 of us here with MTX-3's and we're looking for a good "starting" setup for rubber. The lot is smooth and flat, but not sealed. We blow it off and will spray sugar water on it.

Also, please recommend tires that work!

Thanks,
Mark
i will post my set up soon but if you can not wait its a few pages back some where

Actually the new minimum weight is 1725g. That is to account for the weight of the personal transponder. You have to weigh 1725 regardless wether or not you are using a PT.

Nobody said it was tough to figure out which parts are needed, its hard to find them and little things like the washers don't have part numbers in the manual.

Stefan you made reference to "split" I heard that term before but did not know what it meant.Does it mean the difference in tire diameters?(please expand)Also what tire diameter do you run and have you ever run with equal diameter front and back?By the way my fronts will outlast several sets of rears,how did you cure that.

Alvin,

yes split refers to diameter difference front to rear.

With the stock belt setup, you usually run minimal split, because of the front /rear drive ratio.

With the 16/19 pulley setup, you can run 3-4mm smaller front tires and have the same drive ratio.

I started with 62 rear and 58 fronts,

but, isnt that what this hobby is about?

cheers!


so does anyone have an anwser to my servo saver question??

58 fronts You're almost riding on the rim You probably have some serious traction too.How do you get the proper ride hight up front,cranking down on the springs?


By the way which pulleys are you talking about?

Thank you very much again.
You will get an order for afew more belts soon, if that's still ok.
Will tell you why the tyre wear now is even, rather than in original condition. You have more meat to wear on the rear than in the front (hey, it's easy...).

Not a problem, ask as many you want, but you know, by PM.

Thanks for the report....

Alvinm:

If you go some pages before, you will find between the late night and the boring mornings chit-chat, some posts regarding 16/19 conversion.

This is a swap of the center pulleys to get a better rear tyre wear (all cars have the nasty habit of wear more the rear tyres than the fronts). Is only advised on Foams, on rubber, since the problem of different diameters isn't present, you don't need it (read that you run on rubbers on a previous post).

For more info (in the case you're too lazy to search those posts ) is swapping the rear center (19T pulley) for a 16T and changing the front center pulley from 24T to 19T, hence the name 16/19T conversion.

Cartman:

Are you using different shock towers for your rubber setup? If so where can they be purchased? Could you measure how much of the rear hub I need to cut down?

Have you noticed a difference with handling between rubber and foam? I have grown to like foam alot BUT it's been very hard to get the correct offset and shore foams around me and over the net without having to pay a ridiculous amount of $$$.

I noticed in one of your post you had mentioned your running +1 camber on the rear?

Diagram looking from rear: \\ --- // (exaggerated angles)

What is that receiver enclosure you're using now? Looks a little like a film canister.

Don't know how much droop will use others, but found that going 1 or 2 droop at the front (this car loves going short on front shock travel) and 6 or 7 on the rear gives me best results. Both measured with the Losi droop gauge that have on the pitbox.

For ground clearance, this is straight: 4,5mm at the front and 5mm at the rear. I run on a real smooth track. Sometimes lower, but is caused by tire wear too low and you will be scratching your chasis to the ground, pay attention to the ground clearance.

Tip: Ever you touch the shock collars to adjust ride height, check too the camber angle on the wheels or you will get weird tyre wear.
