I can't say that I have really broken alot of parts on my mtx-3. I have just pulled a couple knuckles through the pillow balls.
Hop ups
I have an aluminum center brace, and an aluminum top brace and aluminum pully holder. The only reason I have these is to keep the flex down. I can't see why you would need all of that other stuff out besides that it looks good.

there are somethings that come from mugen that are pretty good. But if you have the prospect you aready have them.

Default help needed with diff's

hi all, found this place only today !! wish i noticed it before lol..

anyway now i need you mtx3 experts help please...

i am building the kit and noticed that there is somesort of confusion with the front differentialls, when building i followed the instructions as best i could . but now i notice when i got to the rear diff's i used the pieces inside the diff(cogs,pins,o-rings) for the front diff, but i have used the one way bearing ion the front so i think i dont need it ? am i right in thinking they give you an option to use the normal diff's, or use the oneway bearing. and ive gone and built the front diff for no reason ???

pease can someone clear this up for me . i am in the middle of the build with bits every where... lol
thanks
Sonik.

Oneway is good for bigger tracks where you don't need to brake a lot or hard.

normal diff is good for smaller tracks where you use a lot of brake and brake hard.

some people will use the normal diff and use 100,000 or 120,000 diff oil to make it feel like a one way even though its a normal diff. It all depends on what you like.

Default MTX3 PROSPEC

Hi Mugen Experts.

I'm intending to get a new MTX3 Prospec and would like to know more about the car.

I believe it's a reliable and fast car but what else should i be prepared for? Are there any cons or disadvantages compared to other cars i.e. R40s or G4s. Which are some of the common issues faced. i.e. 2speed problems, cumbersome replacement of belts, weak upper deck, etc. Understand the sensitivities here, so you can PM me if necessary. Also, upon buying the prospec are there any upgrades required to further improve the car's performance?

Really appreciate your feedback on the car in advance as i'm planning to get it real soon....like TODAY!

Cheers guys.

MTX3 PROSPEC
I think you will be happy with the car. I have had for a while and have raced it very successfuly. There is really nothing wrong with the car that I can see. And, - you dont need any hopups.

thanks for the advice alucard13. i'll give it a try with the one way and see how it feels . i still have to get the electrics and engine for it
i have a trinity reflex nt with a wasp(team orion) 1.2 turbo, and if the mtx3 handles like the reflex, i think i will like it

I think you will be very happy with the MTX-3. I am no a very "good driver" at all and I have yet to break anything on my car. It is super tough! The only thing I wish it had was front and rear belt tensioners. I seem to go through those belts faster than the side belt. It's not really a big deal though. I'm definetly not going to get rid of it because of that.
