This should solve a lot of issues as far as the 2 speed is concerned. This was a rather serious issue gald to see a remedy. I was not the first to suffer from it but it haunted me more than once.

Default Two Speed

Is this a revised design or a new compound?

From redrc it looks like they have just revised the balls, 4mm balls from 3mm for more stable shifting.

Guys,

if you think about your next upgrade, you should consider the new IDM clutch:



I used this clutch at the last race and I am totally amazed by it. It's tiny. The weight difference to the normal Mugen clutch is about 20 grams, which feels like a ton in acceleration.

Due to the hinged fly weights, it hit really hard if needed/wanted and it was absolutely consistent during the 30 min main.

I don't know if XS Power is importing them, but the sure ought to!

Default New Gears

Hello,

I thought I saw on here that the spur gears are made of a new material. I looked back a few pages and could not find it.

Does anyone know if the spur gears are made of a new material now? If so, are they a new part number or the same part number and just a running change?

Thanks

Hey Stefan,

That looks like the Capricorn clutch for the RRR. Where did you get yours?

Mugen released it approx. 1 month ago and it is made out of a different material...

The new spurs carry different part numbers as follows:

T0279 1st. Spur 58T
T0280 1st. Spur 59T
T0281 1st. Spur 60T

T0282 2nd. Spur 52T
T0283 2nd. Spur 53T
T0284 2nd. Spur 54T

The previous Spurs carry part numbers:

T0251 1st. Spur 58T
T0252 1st. Spur 59T
T0253 1st. Spur 60T

T0254 2nd. Spur 52T
T0255 2nd. Spur 53T
T0256 2nd. Spur 54T

Hope this helps.

I bet people still get the 2nd gear broken syndrome even with the new spur gears.

you can strip a gear on any car if you don't understand why it happens and/or you drive like a mong

I heard there is a MTX4R prospec coming (possibly mtx4x) in time for the worlds. Anyone know any more?

I don't have it anymore because I figured out what was causing it.
