If this remains, change a new endbell. Mugen always have the best parts and it seldom happens. Good luck!
sorry didn't understand
what part are you referring? The one that clutch shoes hits to engage?

Default clutch

Hi
Can anyone tell me the difference between the MTX4 clutch and the MRX4 clutch.
The kits have different part numbers but some parts in common..
Would they be compatible?
Thanks Pip

only parts that interchange are the clutch spring, fly weights, clutch shoe and the thrust bearings.

Pls try 0.5 gap and 1.0 spring press. After setting this, iwill put the car on road test to see if the punch is enough and any abnormal such as the clutch powder seen. If OK, i will tighten the spring load a quarter turn in, and test run, until i get the ultimate feeling that i like. Hope it works and enjoy it.
Use the Super Hard spring for Novarossi based engine. Ultra Hard- I was told, it works better with Ninja's engine

and please do make sure the 4-pc centrifugal shoes, clutch and the clutch holding plate(is flat) are in good condition. To my experience, the endbell is the obvious one.

Hi
I donīt own a MRX4R but I want using some spares for a certain application. Maybe someone could help me here with a question.
From the manual I saw the ballcups (H0855, H0858, C0111C) from steering rods, rollbars and shock mounting are used with the H0867 balls usually.
Those H0867 balls have a small shoulder above the ball what canīt be used for my need.

Now I saw at the rear suspension there is a different ball used for connecting the upper arm to the rear upright. This ball is H0180 and doesnīt have a shoulder.
Are the H0180 balls the same diameter as the H867 or in other words, is it possible using the H0180 balls on the H0855 or H0858 ballcups?
Thanks

The rears are usually cut with 1-2 degrees of camber. The fronts are sometimes cut with 0-1 degree of camber. Best way is to get your set up on your car, put on a new set of tires all around, and then run a tank of fuel on your track and measure the camber (front and rear). You then will be better able to dial in what you need for that track or you can get local info from area racers in advance.
Good luck and enjoy,
Roger

H0180 balls have bigger diameter than H0855 & H0858.
H0180 balls wont fit into C0111C plastic connectors.

Try Kyosho ballcups,

I think they have the balls without the shoulder. ( I don't know the part number ).

Hi guys, how do the GRP tuned motors run compared to the Ninja line? I read that the people love the Ninjas, is the GRP the same motor?
