Anyone know which pipe is better from the Charge 7.2mm pipe, kawahara 7mm pipe, or the shark outlaw? I would be running it on medium size tracks where straights are about 200 ft.

honestly all 3 mentioned above are pretty much on par with each other! you probably cant tell dramatic performance improve switch between the 3 you have mentioned! play with gearing and centex setting you will see more improvments! just need to set it up to the size and your driving style!

I was only talking about 5 or 6 pics you show off !

We should call you the engineer from now on,you're very meticulous.

I still think you need some shiny orange parts to match DTM !

very convenient to work with when you want to release the spur gear from the main shaft.

Default MTX3 vs NTC3 The Curb test

Wow Now I know why soo many people Love there NTC3's and also why So many love the MTX3 More! Geeze just got this NTC3 mint cond prebuilt used kit lotsa nice hop ups for under $200 rtr. I put my RB C12 in it(had an oscvrx15) Geeze they are fast but they are alot harder to handle. Side swiped a curb maybe 15-20 mph totaled the pipe side bent the cvd's broke a rim bent the pipe and manifold broke the fuel tank and front and rear steering/carrier blocks tore the body..... That was Fun! .Now I see what everyone means about how fragile they are.I haven't put my MTX into a curb like that but it drives so much nicer that i think it would have been easier to keep away from the curb. I can't say that I really like a car that freewheels that well for control purposes.But Geeze it is fun to drive.

right, it also avoids you from making scratches to your shinny spur gear holder.

Default manticore 16/19 conversion

question for you you say you run the 16/19 conversion so the tires wear more evenly, but you have to start with 61mm up front and 64 out back right. So when you set the car up like this and wear the tires down when they get super low (provided they last that long) at the end of tires life will both tires wear down to the wheel at the same time, or would you still have a split (meaning the front tire would be tiny and the back tire would be tiny+3mm)
just wondering?
thank you

thank you
i mentioned earlier that my usual tire split is 4mm from new.

i suggest you to try it out for yourself as it doesnt cost you too much for this mod.

Hey Manticore i have my new Pulleys on the way but can't seem to find the side belt and i assume I need a smaller belt for the 16/19T conv. Where can i get them? Looked on e-bay but that guy doesn't seem to be selling them there anymore and the Mugen seiki USA site doesn't list them in the Kawahara parts. Hopefully i get my Motor back from dino this week and i'd like to have the belt to run with the mod.BTW Very nice looking Car there
Excellent pics like the upgrades !

the shorter belt is 363mm, PM corse-R and get a few from him. it will last you a couple of years

kawahara has the belt but it wont last.
