Default servo saver?

when building the mtx3 servo saver there are 3 options for T0304A,T0304B, and T0304C, which is the stock/commonly used part. Looks like there is a slight difference in length of the parts what are these options for?(bump steer?) and what do you all use?
Thankyou
sb

You mean the arm for ACKERMAN ... just use A. Do a search on Ackerman and you will learn all about it.

The limited edition mtx3 has....
1)4mm chassis
2)4mm engine mount
3)pair CVD in front

only about $30 more than the STD edition.

I don't think it's limited edition.It's PLUS+ edition.Get it?
4mm engine mount? are you kidding me?

With rubbers you can set your down stop too ...
droop and down stop are the same thing????

Droop and down stop are the same thing. Downstop means that the suspension arms travel downward, which means the chassis raised.

And I might add that I asked a rep for the Mugen importer in my country where the kit was composed He told me explicitly that it was made in Germany by Mid-Mugen. This might explain the existence (?) of different editions.

without having to read a million posts can someone tell me if the MTX-3 can be successful on small tracks that only allow rubber tires. we have two tracks and thats how they are. I'm going to be picking up a new sedan for christmas. i know how well it performs on foams but like I said thats not an option. can the car be bought with front and rear gear or ball diffs. thanks.

Back in the summer, there is a group of friends that I practice with at our local track. Most of them at the time ran rubber tires with front diffs. I tried driving one of thier car's and it drove really nice. My reccomendation, which you already know, is to get a front diff assembly. Diff oil ? Hummm, dunno about that one but I would start off at 7000 and work from there. Unfortunately, the car can not be bought with both front and rear diffs together. You'll have to buy some parts to assemble the front diff. Goodluck.
