Just got my MTX-3 ready to go. I was wondering what gearing should I start out with on a large track. 270 Ft. straight and large infield located in Hamilton, Ohio. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I take it you're talking about the centax clutch... Go with the hard spring if you're running a 5 port Nova... Then again, that one is totally up to you, because changing the clutch shoes as well, ie. black, grey and red can also make a difference... Most racers will use grey or red, while the stock shoes are black I believe... I'm running red which is super hear... Robbie Collins mention in his article that he uses grey clutch shoes and super hard spings.. Remember, you can always adjust it's engagement... Hope the info helps you out...

thanks for the info

one more thing when using a front one way , what no. diff oil would be good for the rear diff. thanks again.

If your track has good bite, try using 30,000 in the rear. You can get on the throttle sooner. I switch between 10K and 30K depending on the track conditions.

Yeah, so long as you take your time when assembling the battery pack and choose the right plug.

Default Setup

I have done a little searching, but I have not been able to find anything. I need a good basic setup for the MTX-3 with rubber tires and a one-way. Does anybody have one that they can post?

Thank You

nick the stock setup with purple springs and the b block in the servo saver is what i run. might want to try a diff in the front also if there is anything less than absolute traction.

run a front mechanical diff if you're using rubber tyres.

the rubbers will not have enough grip for the one-way to act efficiently.

Ya, I thought a front diff would be a better way to go...I just do not have one. Guess I will need to order one. Thanks
