Probably you not finished the break-in, during this phase, engines get more friction and get a little hotter. When finished, engine lowers their operating temp. What's your temp?

When I'm breaking the engine in - at idle it's runs around 200 plus or minus..

After idling it for a couple tanks, I see on the O.S. website that it's actually not good to idle it more than like 1 tank! Psh...I guess I'm ready to drive it now! Yeah!!! I bought a TR(p) for my car. It hella tight - meaning its soooo hard to turn over!!! Kinda annoying that every couple times it locks up.

I knew picking up that front locked diff was a good idea when I got it!

Default Tire/Rim Choices?

What offset rims do you guys run with the MTX-3?

I want try some different setups but don't know if i should get 2mm offset or 0mm rims. Im trying to find a decent setup with rubber tires if possible. I want to run 30mm rubber in the rear. Do i need to run 30mm rims as well or can i put them on 26mm rims? Foams wear out very quickly so im looking for an alternative.

Car handles amazing with foams but im spinning out with rubber tires. Currently using 26mm rubber tires all around.
Car is setup with 194mm track width both front and rear. I can't go any wider due to dogbone problems. I ordered a set of universals and can't wait to get them that way i can finally run 199mm Front and 200mm rear. Im sure this will dramically increase stabilty and traction in turns.

you can get this car dialed on rubber there is no need for any other than 26mm, you are running a front diff NOT a one way??

i will post my rubber set up on here soon!
