Where can I find setup sheets for the car? Also, is there anything else needed for the car? Mine is coming in a couple days and I want to be prepared for my race next week.

All they seem to have on this site is parts and kits. Nothing in their shows setup sheets.

Thanks Steve. I was originally viewing it on my iPad which was not showing up, but it does on the computer.

Also, is a million diff oil in the front normal to use on most tracks? I see on your nats setup, you use 2.5 mill in the front and 100,000 in the rear. Was this because the traction came up a lot?

Sacrilege it may be but, does anyone know if the Xray NT1 driveshafts & axles fit the MTX6? Also has anyone tried narrow or wider wheel hexes?

So, I have raced my new MTX6 now 3 times and think it is an awesome car, however I am having some trouble stabilizing the rear-end. I have started with the stock set-up and have tried various adjustments such as trying both the black and silver springs. I have also tried lowering the diff oil down to 300,000 in the front and 30,000 in the rear and different compound tires. I have tried 35f-35r and 35f-37r. Nothing seems to be working and at times the car can be a handful to drive at times.I noticed on a few of the set-up sheets that I have seen, some of the drivers are using purple springs front and back. Is this the old style purple springs?

I run on a European style track with a smooth surface. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Lower the rear roll center by going to the lowest position on the lower rear arms. The stock position is in the middle.

I forgot to mention that I did change the roll center to the lower position. It did help a little but not enough.

In certain parts of the track, the car loops out whether it is on-power or off power.

I've been going through the same issue, read many posts and asked many questions but it seems to come back a lot to each driver and track.
For me low grip tyres I like Contact A-comp Fr/37R or 37F/40R on Med grip. Things I'd suggest trying from kit for smaller changes are 1x1.3 hole front shock pistons, 9mm ackerman insert and Spool (BluTac, Ride Putty, 2.5M oil) front diff. For large handling effect changes try front upper arm hinge pin in upper position (I've got grub screws top & bottom and set pin 1mm up from lower pos), narrower rear track width and outer lower rear shock position.
Then for overall grip try larger tyre diameters, in the cold mornings I've gone as big as 63mm Fr/65mm Rr but normally 62/64 for low grip and 61/63 for Med.
