There are ALSO 2 other guys here running the MTX-3 (both running analog throttle/ digital steering) with the 730 Mugen pack. They get about the same run time I do. I suppose we're all idiots?? Personally, I think it's the cells that Mugen uses.
Got very bad results with the premade AAA packages, and after frying 2 packs (one cell went bad) went and got some Sanyo AAA cells, zapped them and made some cycles of charge and discharge and matched the values into packs (Electric heritage, sorry). Now have 3 packs and kept the 2 highest values in discharge times packs, Mine best pack gives me an hour, but the other gave me slightly more than 50 minutes. All two passed the 875Mah mark (800Mah nominal) during discharge cycles.

Use the highest on mine MRX3 and use the second on the MTX3, have the same combo on all cars. Futaba 9450 on Steering and 9402 on throttle. Saw many guys using KO FET & HiTec servos blaming about pack runtime with the AAA cells, probably this is your problem.

Corse,

I run Hitec 5925 and 525 BB in mine and don't have any problems.

I think most people don't simply get them charged completely.

Probably, found that Ni-Mh cells don't like to be overnight charged. Ni-Mh cells for being correctly charged need to get some temperature (get warm, not hot...)

Default How to remove pinions from clutch bell?

Has anyone found a good way (or tool) to remove the pinions from the clutch bell, I have now ruined two bells trying to get the second gear off.

Mugen makes a tool exactly for this purpose. It's definitely the safest way to remove stubborn pinion gears. Price is about $30.
