I believe the Kyosho clutch is more on size to fit the Mugen.

The Motonica clutch is compleetly the same as the Mugen (even the gearbox)
Motonica is the same but only has 3 weights (pins) on the flywheel rather then 4.

Take a look at your front one way to make sure that both sides of it are locking up when the car is on power. I had a one way fail once and I had the same symptoms that you describe with the car pulling to the right because the right side was not locking.

Swap your tires from right to left and check if the car still pulls to the right. Faced it and drove me crazy until I found that a defective tyre was balooning when I pulled the trigger.

I just picked up a new MRX4-R to build over the winter for next spring. Is there anything not included in the kit that I should get now while I'm building, like clutch shoes, springs, etc.? What will I need beside spares, body and tires that isn't in the factory kit?

Also, I would like to build this car with ti screws, but noticed that there is an A and a B ti screw kit offered from Mugen. What's the difference?


TIA,

doug

Dude, I don't know a lot about your car, but I believe the Titanium screw kit (A and B) means upper and lower. Like the A is all the smaller screws for the upper half of the chassis and the B is for the larger screws that attach your parts through the Bottom...Chassis plate. I ordered them for a buddy once for his car. Hope this helps some.

Are you an experienced driver in 1/8 on-road?, you need nothing, first get the feeling of the car....

Not an experienced 1/8 driver? You still need nothing......

Thanks for the tips, guys. My kit won't arrive until Monday or Tuesday, and I was just wondering about stuff that isn't included with it. I guess I'm used to so many electric kits not having everything you really need to get it built properly.

That reminds me, in the Swauger Centax article in RCX, they showed a clutch adjustment tool. Is that in the kit or something extra that will be needed for proper adjustment? I couldn't really tell from the photos what the tool looked like up close. Are the yellow clutch shoes the kit shoes or not? Is the stiff spring needed?

Sorry to ask so many questions, but I've read this entire thread and didn't find the answers. Plus, I hate getting to a track for the first time with a new car and having someone walk over and say, "you know, you should really have such-and-such in the car—it would work a lot better..."



Cheers,

doug

Clutch tool is not included. You can use the hard spring in the kit, but the MSR spring works much better. Depends on you driving style.
