Rattlr2,
I run a front Diff with 50,000 and this past friday night it was leaking. I filled it up as instructions stated. Dont know if this is normal, I will disassemble the front and check out the diff, see how much fluid has been lost.

rattlr2,
10k rear and 30k front. If that is still too much then try 5k rear and 10k front.

Default Turnbuckles

I just completed my MTX-3 Prospec and was wondering what tool you guys use to adjust the turnbuckles.

It's a little bigger than the usual lunsford wrench i normally use. I tried some needle nose but i can't get a good grip on them.

thanks in advance

Default First race

I am having my first race tomorrow with my new mtx3 , and it seems to look well and handle good except in tight turns, it wants to do a 360 and whip the tail end around what dont i have set right? i am racing on a parking lot track and i am running the full stock set up and parts what do i need to do to the suspension to get it to have more rear end traction?
might i have the rear to narrow?

also when i brake the tail end does the same thing do i have them too hard?

thanks

WAY TO HARD IF YOUR USING THE FRONT ONE WAY

Adjust your maximum braking to where it does not lock up the tires

so when the brakes are right how long should it take my car to stop once i hit them 5-10 feet? that makes alot of cents, i thought i would need full brakes but when i think about it i want to coast thru the turns and that will give me more control!!

thanks

I just bent a piece of thin steel rod. You just hook it in the hole and twist.

Looks crappy but does the job.

If you get stuck pm me and I'll send you a pic.

Yeah it's similar. Except I put a kick on the other end so it's easier to turn.
