So, here in Germany is still winter and today it begans to snow. So I decide to start building my MTX-4 for the season 2007.
The production day of the car was June 2006. You find the production day on a sticker which is on the bag of the parts.
What I also found out, that they have changed the belt tensioner. It`s know on the left side. They also changed the inside of the fuel tank.
The only hopup parts I use are the Ti-screws and the front universals. Of course I will also use the rubber belts, because there run smoother than the urethan one.
First, I started to clean the bearings. Just open it, put out all the grease and lubricate it with good bearing oil.
Then I started to built the rear diff. When you built the diff like shown in the manuel, you will noticed, that the "axle" (i´m not sure if its called axle
) has some gap. I put 2x 0.20mm shims between the diff and the "axle", to minimise it.
As writen before, I removed the s3 o-ring. And like A-I, I use some oil to lubricate the s5 o-ring, before installing. I use the 30.000 mugen oil in the rear diff and the most time at the front a solid axle.
So, that was day 1...
ok, not very much, but I have time before I start racing
