Default Re: screws

I either use Ti or any other generic hex screws. Stainless screw is just too shiny, and my car is always messy, anyway.

Default Front diff

Anyone running a front diff on the MTX-3 ?

I race on a tight track and was thinking of installing a front diff but need some feedback here before doing so.

In theory, yes, front diff is beneficial on small track: you get front braking before entering turns and less understeering after you exit turns at full power.

But some people are able to setup their cars perfectly with front oneway for small track. I don't know how small is your track, but my home circuit has two tracks: small and big. The small track is technical while the big track has lots of sweeper.

3 racing parts are the worst parts !
i just got a 3 racing front one way and broke the one-way joints... things like that are the hardest things to break!

My track seems to be pretty technical.

Here's a photo:

I know when I had a 710 with a ball diff up front I was faster getting out of the curves.

I picked up a PROPSEC and will be trying it out in 2005 ... too much snow right now Hi Hi !

Dude, that track is not small

I suggest you keep the one way because you have 1 medium straight, 2 sweeper high speed, 1 long straight. One way gives you more straight speed.

You can replace the rear oil damper to thicker one for more oversteering ( rear tires slide ) because the middle section have few hairpins.
