does any particular manufacturer make better Ti. screws than another? like for example Tamiya versus speedmind based on weight and price?

SQUARE makes Ti screws for the 3 as well. However, I don't think they are much different from the speedmind ones.

You should widen your track after putting on the Monos. Since they are 0 offset, your track will be too narrow. Just unscrew all the pivot balls out a full turn or so. Unless you have a setup board you can measure them accurately. Be careful with the front if you don't have universals. Widening them can cause the the dog bones to fall out under full throw. Running the track too narrow will cause your car to be unstable.

I just broke my Mugen Front universal (used it for more than 10 races and seems very durable) and ready to order a new set but saw 3 Racing have Front universal for MTX-3 and is half of the price compare to Mugen universal. I was wondering anyone used 3 racing or both before. How's the 3 racing quality compare to Mugen one? I may go for 3 racing if it is as durable as Mguen universal.

Thanks.

I'm new to rc and was wondering what is the best way to clean your car at the track. I have seen people at the track with clear spray bottles? I'm sure its not just water.

most people would say mugen is better than 3 racing. go back a couple of pages and you can read all about it. there has been several post about this.

Most likely it's denatured alcohol. That's what I use. You can get it at most harware stores. It works great and it's cheaper if you buy it in bulk (by the gallon) DO NOT spray your car down with water!

denatured alcohol is the best thing to use, has no water in it and can be sprayed on electronics and eng with no problems. Try and avoid the air filter. Blow off car with air compressor. Use toothbrush on stuborn spots.

You might also want to consider those 1mm washer from Mugen, put them between the pin and the bearing. By doing this you dont need to widen your track width that much, more like 1mm less on each side.

I can tell you 3 racing is not as strong as Mugen one, but they are still decent and cheaper! the main difference between the 2 is the little hardward holding the pin in the join, Mugen one is bigger! If you can afford the difference I would suggest Mugen. it is a pain to replace cvds, eventhough it doesnt take that long but I rather have a peace of mind and enjoy that time on the track instead of pitting and fixing!

I think it is a very bad idea to lighten the flywheel on the inside, because you need a smooth surface for the flyweight to operate right and consistant!

I am afraid your flyweight might get caught or stuck by the round hole!

Since you have already have a bunch of holes there, you might want to chamfer them and make them as smooth as possible!

Just my $0.02

I have been using this design for a long time now on all of my mtx3's, and it works great.
Just a thought only, really if it works I am consider doing so too! can you send me higher res pix please?

TIA
