Did it come with the original shocks?

Hopefully cause to get the same setups from other MTX-3 drivers you would need the stock shocks.

But then again, if it works good with the Loosi shocks and you have a good understanding of car set-ups then leave 'um on.


Excellent deal though !

I replied to your situation.

Hey SMG, it's good to see you at the boards again! We're gonna miss your firery personalty around here (the track).

I've gotten a MRX3, it's a blast to drive after so long with the TC's. I know of a couple that are cheap, if you want to keep up with, or blow the doors off the local guys there.

I was really sorry about your bad luck at the 'Bowl, before you left, we have had to repair that section of wall, as it's happened to others, me included. I didn't hurt the engine but ripped the corner off the car.

YEAH ! where is Corse-R ! Haven't seen him around here in a long time!

do u use the mx 3 for racing?what tx u are currently using now?

Default braking issues...

Ive got a one-way, and under braking my car spins out. Is it caus' the one-way has no front braking? Thats my guess... If I lower my brake travel to 2% it stops spinnimg, but keeps on going Im trying my anti-lock feature but that doesnt help much...

bro...it's hard to use the brake when using one-way up front. what you need to do is try to set-up the brakes that it's enough to slow down the car and not lock up the rear wheels. when the rear wheels lock up, your car spins out...

Well, I had a fairly good race yesterday. I made a 5th place overall considering I had some trouble with my transponder failing erraticly on the final.
The Mugen pipe worked well, it gave me more top end than the other pipes, but i think I should've geared my car differently to keep pace of the leaders. Overall it is a very complete pipe, definetly worth the investment. The other driver on the track with a Sirio engine had an RD Logics Turbo II pipe, and I outruned him on the main straight permanently, and kept a 5 car lead on him during the total final heat.
