Thank you very much for the excellent explanation.
Enjoy your vacation and especially the Saturday. I wish I were there.

Internal ratio of the car is 2.15

How you get that? Divide the Rear Diff between the Brake Pulley, meaning that 41T/19T = 2.157.

Now, Divide 59/17 = 3.47 and multiplied by our 2.157 (internal ratio) = 7.486

Now, take out your calculator and get your numbers...

the shaft looks to be fine. its the mtx4, and this winter i want to convert it to the r. will the mtx3 1st gear one way fit the mtx4? i have a complete mtx3 that hasn't been raced all summer. thanlks again guys for all your input.

The holes in the radio plate are elongated side to side by about 3 mm on each side. To allo the radio plate to move sideways, you need to put a distance tube (see the brass piece inside the strut) that is a fraction longer than the radio plate is thick. This way you can crank down on the strut without locking the radio plate.

Now when everything works, the radio plate will be able to move side to side, but not back and forth.

Move your left side of the roll bar further out on the radio plate, so the strut has room to move.
The same thing is done on the other side, but because of the carb link it's hard to see.

Also, you have to counter sink the holes for you rear tank screws to get them level with the radio plate.

Hope this helps.

I am off to vacation now with a short stop in Lostallo on Saturday

Oh, btw, if you look closely, you can see the adjustment screw in my front one way. With this screw I can adjust my one way gradually from fully open to fully locked and anywhere in between.
can you post more info about the adjusting screw of the one way, here on PR one of the locals make this mod 2 years ago on a Kyosho one way and he told us that is Imposible to do it with only one screw

Thanks!

hey guys, mugen fans - look i really keen to hear your thoughts on the front diff, is it worth going to gain quicker times and better steering and easier on front belts?


Also how many destroy the front plastic pulley near the steering ackerman?

I have done one in the last 3 meets, and is it any better to go alloy to prevent this prob.

I have been running a 2mm tire split and so far it looks still healthy but i am sure it will have same issues.

So front diff or not is the question and alloy gears on the rubber belts?


cheers
Frankie

the round plastic eccentrics that the outdrive bearing fit into wear QUICK! I bet those are all sloppy worn

I am on my original front belt and pulley after 3 years of hard racing




The front diff with front arms slammed and short upper kawahara arms is the way...
