No. You maybe able to use Kyosho with a washer that can fit over the bell threads.

4. Speed -3

If your track is cold or wet try Speed -4 or -5
If the car is still locking the wheels decrease the 1. Point
If the car is braking in long distance increase 2. Stroke and a little bit 1. Point

Keep trying something around the 1 and 2 but don't go too far from -3 to -5 in the point 4. Speed
the speed setting on the forward or the return for throddle or both

I see all the team drivers are using them..
The NEW aluminum clutch bell and black shoe is great, JJ felt significant difference in added bottom end. We ran 4 rounds of qualifying at the Timezone GrandPrix with it without any glitch.

Installed the high traction chassis 2410 on my Mrx5 it was definitely worth spending the money it made the car much more stable. The car was able to enter and exit corners much more aggressively. Had to make a minor suspension adjustment to get a little more steering But my car was much more dialed and confident with the new chassis. Thought it would be much lighter with the higher grade aluminum but its only 3 grams lighter. It has a light hard coating on it that I didn't notice from photos I looked at.

Hey guys, I have two things that I need addressed:

1. I had a great race weekend here on my local track but I am still having issues with getting enough brakes at the end of the straights. I have the end points of my servo and linkage adjusted as perfect as i can get them without causing the car to spin out. Is there a suspension adjustment i can make? Am I not allowing enough weight transfer or too little?

2. A guy here at the track wants to get rid of his MRX4 and has a ton of parts for it that he only wants 1/2 price for. What parts are the same from his MRX4R to my MTX5?

thanks a ton guys!
Kyle

1. There was some discussion of this on the previous page. What servo are you using?

2. Assume you meant mrx5.. You can download parts list and check but from memory some screws, bearings, pinion/2speed gears, 2 speed shoe, rear axle shaft, dog bones, pivot balls/sockets, clutch spring. Maybe some more though the majority of parts changed.

Alrilght, and how many guys run the weights in the chassis? It just adds more weight to the front right? better tracktion in the front? Mine has no weights and I am thinking about throwing some up there.

Also, what tire thickness do u guys true your tires down to? I know it's probably mostly preference but I dont even know where to start. And 2 degree camber correct? That's both front and back?

When I put the weights in my car it made the car not as response but if your at a race were they're checking weight, then you would need to put weight in the car, but by putting weight in the front of your car is not a guarantee its going to give you more steering.

If the track has decent traction 74 rear 67 front would be a good starting point.

Normally I run two degrees of camber in the front and three degrees of camber in the rear with two degree of two in the rear and a -1 degree of toe out in the front ( total ) so half a degree of toe out on each side.

Hopefully that was helpful for you.

Nope, less front traction. It's the opposite of what you would think.
