-4 degree of camber in the rear with -2 degrees of rear toe.

Car was good until the rear diff leaked all the fluid out, ( my fault for not changing the gasket )
Someone just told me that exact setup... M. McD?

Ok..
Everyone who hasn't heard this setup before can give it a try, it worked for me on a high bit track, was able to run the car hard without traction rolling.

Sounds like it should work great on Ft. Myers & Kissimmee as well

Default Carbon Upright Discs

Quick question, what is the advantage of having these fitted, what is their purpose? Cheers

Default tech help please

I cannot get the mtx4r clutch to work on the new RB Speed .12 engine. The spring is unable to push on the clutch shoe because there is no room behind the shoe so the clutch stays engaged at all times. Any idea if the MTX6 clutch is any different than the MTX4 or will a Kyosho work?

Please help I'm at a total loss here ive tried Everything

thanks for any advice

Shaft tip washers, I forget the size, but needed to space out the thrust bearing insert inside retainer thing.

I got my mtx6 on Monday last week! I ran the car for the region 12 race and the car is really good! So much better than my mtx5. It's so good I need a new motor to go with it. I guess it's time for a vir-tus .12

Ran mine last 3 weekends with no issues at all,Mugen really fixed the past problems.Went 60,000 in the rear seemed to help.I think a little heavier in the front over stock will work well.Maybe 400,000.Car turns on a dime,very happy with car overall for sure .No stripped gears at all.It's a keeper

Been off the racing scene for the last 5 years since my daughter was born. My trusty MTX4R is still in the race case. I'm seriously considering getting back on the scene, and the MTX6 is looking like a good welcome back.
