I am new, just a quick question, I am wondering if you guys (Pro Driver) using brake? Coz I heard just some they don't use brake, what is the truth?

I was driving next to Hara at the Nats last year. we were the same speed down the straight, when we got to turn 1, I coasted in and he used the brakes hard! He pulled 10 cars thru the corner because of that. I discovered if you run on a track with lots of grip (traction rolling grip) you can use a lot of brakes.

Yeah..... heavy braking could spin out the car, so you have to test it before racing / playing.

Front one way setup: You can adjust Brake EPA ( end point adjustment ) to limit the brake travel from transmitter. The braking power will be softer but you won't spin.

Front ball diff : You can use harder braking power and the car remain stable. The car could spin out if four tires are lock up completely.

Mid-summer. No cad drawing have been released as of yet. Once they come out (cad drawings) it is usually only a month or two before the car arrives to us (local shops).

I understand it is a new car and not a MTX3.5. I can't wait.

MUGEN ROCKS!!!!!!!

Check e-bay. I used a 3-racing one for ever. No problem yet. Cheap too.

I just searched ebay and also did some google searches. I cannot find the Kawahara nor the 3-racing one. I found plenty of spools for other cars, tho (such as the HPI).

Default Hello

Hello,

I just want to say hi to all of you guys. I just purchased a MTX-3 prospec kit and have finished builting it. Please see below for some pictures. [IMG][/IMG] [IMG][/IMG] [IMG][/IMG]

For the engine & pipe, I am using RB V15 Rody modified & RB inline tuned pipe.

Right now I am having a little problem with this car... I already made quite a few runs and I am still having a little drag from the belts. I tried soaking them with WD40 but that didn't work so I don't know what to do next... All my other cars will loosen up after few runs... Does this car suppose to have some drag from the belts? Thank you.
