kaka nemo, you are going to see me drive tomorrow with the 16/19 conversion hehe!

By the way, my personal opinion, I think the conversion will benefit the most if you were running in a tight technical track.

are there any must have or nice to have upgrades for the mtx3?
wrong decision dude. the prospec is awesome,, and you will spend $100 just on the cvd's and alloy hexes alone!

16/17
on a tight technical track tire wear is usually not a problem so why do a conversion? This car handles awesome stock but what ever works for you is fine. But please newbies do not be misled and have people let you think that this car needs to be tinkered with to be fast cause it doesn't, keep it simple. Spend that money on tires and fuel, cause most likely its your driving that needs to be tinkered with

Just a question....

People are saying that the Kawahara belts do not last as long as the Mugen ones do... Based on that these 16/19 conversion belts are made by Kawahara, are you guys having problems with belt durabilityof those conversio belts?

Wanted to know because I am to buy belts for conversion and would like to have an idea of how many to buy...

cheers....

Same here. $6.95. And they do not last as long as the Mugen belts.

Hi there...

I was trying to use know the old blue springs in the fronts, after having liked the grey ones... But seems that with the ride height I must use in our bumpy track there is no enough thread in the shock body...

Have you guys had this problem?
How did you solve it? Any spacer between the spring and the collar or rear springs in the fronts?

Thanks in advance....

cheers...

Default Re: Throttle Punch and Curve

Originally posted by Bivens
  • Throttle Punch is simply a name for causing the throttle to "jump" through the extreme-low end of the range with the addition of any positive throttle input.....effectively, the use of the throttle punch function causes an immediate jump in servo position from idle to some set value (typically maybe 5% to 10%) to attempt to speed up throttle response of the engine by eliminating the use of very-low throttle positions where the air-flow through the carb throat is too low to effectively function......(this function would be more useful on engines that do not come off of idle well or exhibit poor throttle response)
  • Throttle Curve simply refers to the relationship between the trigger-movement and the servo-travel. A linear relationship means that the "curve" is a direct relationship between the two.....(ex. 50% trigger = 50% throttle servo response). The curve can be altered in many ways by different radio manufacturers....common methods allow exponential curves which will "sensitize" the response on one-end of the servo's travel while de-sensitizing it on the other end. New methods by some manufacturers allow the curve to be treated in multiple linear parts....(ex. -100%=full brake, 0%=idle, 50%=30%, 70%=50%, 100%=full throttle). Different than exponential because the user can change a point on the relationship without affecting the others.

Just another answer from an engineer.....civil
Thanks a lot.. You make me clear now!!!

Ok, reasons of using 16-19 conversion. The car will handle better in a tight, high bite track with one-way by using smaller front tires to have a higher roll center(less front roll in tight turn).Also better steering response. (Mugen can't change the front roll center by changing arm position) tire wear is the same. it just an illusion since you have widen the size split, you still keep the rear tire bigger then the front.
