Hi, I was looking for a little info on the MTX-3 Prospec. I'm in the middle of building one and I have a minor problem.

I'm having a little problem with the 2-speed assembly. When I thread down the pinion gears and assemble them. When I turn the motor over it unthreads the pinion. I'm pretty sure I'm screwing them down the right way.

Thank you in advance.

Sounds like you're starting the engine the wrong way. when looking at the front of the engine, the flywheel should turn counterclockwise. Good luck

I don't think i'm starting it the wrong way. It's when I turn the spur gear to check the drivetrain, when it sticks because of the new motor, is where it begins to unthread.

One more question, Do the servo horns come with the kit? I can't seem to find them, specifically the steering one.

Dont worry, that normal, try spining your flywheel instead, it will tighten itself, as for the servo horns, they do not come with the kit.

If your two speed is assembled correctly then the pinions will self tighten, there is no need for threadlock and if used will cause problems. If the two speed assembly spins freely backwards then all is good, if there is any binding first gear will unthread itself.

I had no trouble getting the bearing on the diff, it will not slide over the outdrive though.

Default Shock Rebound

So, tonight I am in the middle of a shock rebuild. I am always guessing at the shock oil volume and rebound. And I always notice that the bladder is always pushed in.

So,

How much rebound do you have?
How far is the piston extended when you tighten the cap?
Does the bladder end up pushed in?

Thanks!

(after typing this, I realize that these questions will lead to much abuse about my extended shaft and pushed in bladder...please be gentle on me....
