rclover i cannot tell you for sure that i got better lap time because my normal track is closed for the winter but i can tell you the box setup is great and with a stock mt-12 engine from my old mtx-2 i was able to catch a ntc3 with a 5 port os a ntc3 with a rtu and a mtx-2 with a highly modified novarossi all driven by good drivers on a track they were familiar with i hadnt ever driven before if my body pin hadnt come out i may have won the race i had gone from last to second when it came out

i should get to race again tommorrow our weather here lately has been snow and rain for like 2 weeks

the guys i was racing against were all very impressed it really handles well and for some reason it seems to have more speed than mtx-2

I think you will find that your extra speed is gained through the corners due to the lower center of gravity. I may be wrong but I cant see how the same engine in 2 different cars can be the cause of your extra speed.

If you were running on a twistier track, you would be faster than the 5-ports with your MT12 in the twistier parts to begin with and the lower CG would increase this more.

Default Front diff oil?

I am setting up my MTX3 for a tight track using rubber tires and a front diff. What diff oil should I use front and rear? I used 10,000 front and 3000 rear on my MTX2 and that worked pretty good.

suggest you use the stock setup as a starting point. #10000 for rear diff and #30000 or #50000 for front diff. front one way works great for tight track.

Hello,

Ran the car today and ran to problem that after the car flipped the servo linkaged got stuck. I then unscrewd the servo horn out of the servo, but still stuck. Found out it was some part on the servo saver arm got stuck against the upperdeck. ouch!

by the way, just follow the instruction manual for building up the steering servo rack
make sure you use correct spacer to ensure nothing jam with the servo horn and ball end
