Need help finding the part number for the RB X12 turbo inline pipe and manifold.

The RB web site only shows the non turbo X12 in line pipe set.
.

According to the Ace Harware Hobby site, the part number is RBCE1791-EP.

Just received expensive Kawahara Negative Differential for my MTX3. Any input on the performance guys?
I have the neg diff on my MTX-2 and love it. I thought about getting one for the MTX-3, but to be honest, don't see the need.

I just got one too..will be installing it in my car soon...i'll be sure to let you guys know how it feels.

Yea, to me it's just another setup option. If you have the $ then I'd say go for it. I'm pretty sure it's not a necessary upgrade by any means....hehe...

make sure you use very light diff oil, better yet use Red-Line or Mugen grease, but lightly though.

What shores are you running in the rear?

You need to round off the edges. After truing them.

Hey guys...it seems that most peeps here run front universals and rear dogs. Any benefits of running the dogs in the rear? What about rear universals?

Yes, when it banged left and right, flipping, got hacked, etc. Otherwise, they're just fine...

The way I understand it ,the neg. diff should act like a very free diff for your turn in & act like a solid axle on exit .

did you check your bevel gears in the diff if they properly mesh?
that could be your problem of your diff not turning smooth.

besides the neg diff will not solve that prob.. the neg diff is just a tuning option.. it will eat up tyres on the striaght when you power on exiting the corners..

by the way i think u may have to adjust your driving style abit with the neg diff

personally i think the stock diff will work just as well..
it really up to the driver himself...
