Throw out the gear diff, the team guys say it just slows you down.

I totally disagree...if you run a very small, technical track a gear diff with some 120k oil will outshine a oneway for the only fact that you can use brakes.

But a one way is a must on Medium to Large tracks.

i disagree here 2 !

just a matter of driving preference and style. which ever makes you fast, use it ! some people is fast using diff gear but poor with one way. some people is fast using front one way but poor with diff. try it out !

120k?! Wow. How does slowing the gear dif down with oil that that effect the car?

It makes it close to a solid axle. I actually use a solid axle in the front on my MTX3 for techincal tracks and love it! I have had great success with it on small tracks and enjoy being able to stay on power longer than other cars that are using a oneway. But for big tracks I switch back to the one way.

I have been using lighter and lighter oil in my gear diff trying to gets some pull around the tight corners. I am heading in the wrong direction?

Iv never run my mtx 3 with a diff up front, I always used one way. Now that we have a small new track i was thinking of using a diff up front. What sillicone would you sudgest i use something close to the oneway. The only reason i want to use a diff is to avoid other cars in case of an accident.

The traction of the track will also determine if you want to use a diff or one-way. I use a one-way on my car. I can hit the brakes while turning. It does not loose traction unless the track is slick. Drag brake is also a vital part of getting the car to turn off power.

It still will come down to personal perference. Use what makes you the fastest. Not what someone says you should use.

Anyone tried NS15S5 ?

I am planning to buy an engine for my MTX-3.

There are 3 engine in my list and hope someone will give me advice. Which one you would get if you were me?
Personally, i like NS15S5 most since it claimed most fastest engine and powerful than other 2 engines. (Do you think NS15S5 will really outrace other 2 engine? Cause that engine is too new and have not heard anything about it yet?) Any cons of using NS15S5 .15 engine in .12 engine case?

Our local track is medium to big size. I want to get the fastest engine in overall performance.


NSR12S5 ---- 1.6hp Heard a lot of good things about it

NRS-RR12L5 --- 1.6hp Long stroke and good for small track

NS15S5 ---- 1.8 hp claimed most power in .12 size.


Thanks.

How also will a NS12 JP compare against a NS15S5? Inputs appreciated. Thanks.

... why is a diff better for a small track, as compared to a 1-way? wouldn't a 1-way provide more steering, entering and exiting as compared with a diff?

mabey because on a small tight track you might need to hit the breaks alot (tight turns, avoiding someone that spunout or crashed bofore you)
