I saw a killer lil' tool this past weekend. It was a blade swaybar adjuster like the one previously posted, but this was just a piece of stamped metal tool with a fork-like end and a handle, it fit inside the opening at the front of the chassis, where the access to the servo saver is, on any car. He said he thought he got it from "Mico", who, by the way makes the MUST have carbide bit for your tire truer.

I got one for my Ofna tire truer (which is as good if not the same as the Hudy) at WinterNats, any of you FLA guys know how to get in touch with him? It cuts a tire like it came from the box, new.

Because the 3racing one mounting stud is so small, around 3cm in diameter attach onto the radio plate so when you lift the car with the handle bar it puts a lot of stress on it and if you run lola body and when you fliped then you will understand what I mean!

This is the reason I purchased the bar made by Shooter. It goes through the deck and mounts to the radio supports underneath.

because I have everything to get my car lighter, such as titanium screws, hinges pins, pillow balls, everything, but stil on 1790...

...cheers...
How heavy is your body, I think you might be using too much paint, it is heavy.
The 3r stuff is a bit sus, the blade rear sway bar wears quickly, the side brace with belt tensioner breaks, if you want candy get Kawahara or Mugen. You need reliability.

Default MTX3 Question

Hi guys,

I have a S710 currently but I think I am going to switch to mugen. for one, part are cheaper, the car is stronger from what I hear and it handles better than any other car of the box. The clutch is very responsive (I drove one).

I had a few questoins however that maybe you guys can answer to persuade me to make the move. if I buy a mugen it will be the Pro spec.

1)I want to know how easy is this car to setup, I know the only roll centers you can change is the rear, how easy is it? is this something you can do along side track? is this adjustment so powerful that mugen did not consider making the front roll center adjustable as in the serpent?

2) does the car come with a one way or diff is / there options?

3) is there a way to install a solid axle in the front and or the rear?

4)re: bearings , does the car come with good sealed bearing that I can relube and clean?

5) is the optional pulleys to play with the internal drive ratio?

6) optional parts availability ? aftermarker and original?

thank you guy!

I know this is a lot to ask,

I saw somewhere in this forum that the MTX3 is for beginners? Just because of easy to drive? And how would a 710 racer would switch to MTX3? 710 is supposed for expert I guess.
