Go with the A block and see if it helps.

running cvd's. I will tear it down and look at it a little closer.

one more question, does the mtx3 use offset wheels or can it run the standard ones? The only thing I see is the tire gets a little close the the rear carier.

thanks
Those tabs are to put the screws for setting the Bump Stop. They are almost never used, as well as they are never used on the rear.

Ive never ran offset wheels for the mtx-3 even though its designed for 1mm offset. Im currently using jacos and elligis right now and dont have a problem, the only problem i can see arise is if the front tires are really wobbly then it might rub against the carrier, but most people wouldnt run bent tires anyways.

Those blocks and their correspondant rear bulkhead cap, stamped A, B,C
are used to change the height of the lower suspension arms with respect to the chassis, thus varying the car's roll center, and the camber variation as the suspension compresses.
For tracks with good grip use "A" pieces
For tracks with medium grip use "B" pieces
For tracks with low grip use "C" pieces

If you need more turn in off power ther are other things that will give you more steering
Lay down the front shocks
Stand up the rear shocks
Reduce front droop
Reduce rear droop
Put the "A" Ackerman steering servo saver piece

Try one change at a time and see.

try the A ackerman block first, bc I was in the oposite situation as you and I went from A to B and solved my issue.

Also tire shore? if your car is pushing you may also want to stiffen the rear (stiffen the rear sway bar) , or soften the front sway bar....

Those are the eccentric cams. They need to be adjusted. take off the wheels, when you lift one side up, measure the distance the other side lifts. Do the same to the other side til both sides have the same amount of lift.

What it will surely give you is another setup option, some people like it, some don't (I do). Another option is putting a Serpent 23t instead of the 24. gives a little more front drive and you only have to run a 2mm split (I think, but I don't have a calculator in front of me to figure it out) to get 1:1 OD ratio again. Setup options are always good, especially when they're cheap. That's why I stick to the plastic pulleys.
