SpeedWorld is carring K-Factory hop up parts for the MTX4-R has anybody used them?

I hope this helps

i dont have that problem, maybe im doing something wrong

i do change my 1st and 2nd gear holders often.
the bearings get wobbly

Wow, you must be rich! At $33 a pop, that's a huge waste of money. I ran the ones that came wih the car for a full season with no issues. And I plan on re-using them next year.

Any new guys out there reading this, I don't think i'd take this guy Wally's advice. Unless you're rich like he is.

Hello NitroRat, Buy the 4mm chassis and that will solve 99% of the gear problem. I had the same problem, I blew 16 gears in 3 weeks and never had a gear problen the first 3 times out with the car. I tried making sure the engine was square and read everything about how to fix the gear problem on the KB - MUGEN web site when it started and non of those ideas worked. the 3mm chassis does flex a ton sideways and foward to back in the engine area even with that brace. I then bought the 4 mm chassis and the problem was cured. I have gone through two gears since, but those were my fault being in a hurry and making sure the engine was not perfectly square,, which is very important I asked Mugen that I think that they should raise the price about $10 and just stick the 4mm chassis in the kit and problem solved. That is the ONLY problem with the intire car. I have talk, helped and watched a lot of racers go through gears and some racers not go through gears, but I feel that every driver is faster than some and the problem is in general is the more experience drivers are having the problem were the more newer racer is not. I don not know if the newer racer is on the throttle as much, harder or earlier and that is the difference. I am not in any means trying to separate driverís ability or say one person is better, itís just that I own an on-road track and I always am helping the racers at our track and that is what I have experienced. Also the gear problem has not started it seems for a few races until the chassis seems to get a little broke in, it sounds funny but maybe the chassis gets weak even since it is made from alum. after a 3 or so races. I have not seen a gear problems on the car when it has been new, only after a handful of races or less like I mentioned.

Any new guys out there reading this, I don't think i'd take this guy Wally's advice. Unless you're rich like he is.

just when they get wobbly,some last longer than others.
and why is it that i dont have a problem with a ti rear shaft like others do and come to think of it why dont i strip 2nd gears like alot of ppl do.
dose anyone oil there bearings in there gear holders.
the oneways dont last forever,there could be a prob and you dont even know it.
but dont take my advice,
but i do have a good peace of advice and that is dont live in the usa unless you are rich cuz if you get sick you will die.
have a nice day.

and yes get a 4mm chassis,the 3mm is just not good enough.

I get sick sometimes and i'm not dead nor am I rich like you. I merely wanted the noobies out there to realize your wealth of knowledge might not be accurate is all. And you bring up universal health care on a rc forum? usa vs. can.?

Once again, new racers out there, Listen Up! Wally has no clue what he's talking about. Do Not take his advice no matter what it is. That is all.

yllib, Thanks for the advice, I have seen it at our local track also. I will buy one this week because gears are almost the price off the chassis at this time.
