The setup I was using when I was driving the MTX4 was:
MRX4 spring with 1.7-2.0mm preload
Mugen yellow shoe
0.6 clutch gap
0.1 end play

Sometimes I used the IDM spring with 2 - 2.3mm preload but I liked the MRX4 spring better.

Default Clutch

I have been using the flyweights with the 5 mm holes and the super hard spring with a yellow shoe. This setup really hits hard!
