I've never striped a spur during a race. The only time I did is when I worn my rear tires down so low that in the turn the 1st gear spur touch the ground. I use the mugen 3mm chassis with the mtx-3 prospect engine mounts.

yllib: I tried your set up today at the track and it was off the hock. It was a little loose off the corner for me, but fast. I tried 38 jaco's after I tried the 40's and it made the car more planted or easier to drive, but the times were slower by a few tens. I will stay with the 38's for now until I sharpen up my driving.

Thank you for responding to my e-mail so quickly and the help.

I pm you tonight

If your car is underweight, the battery area is centered and very low in the car. It is really one of the best (if the THE best) places to add weight to the car. It is not difficult to get the MTX-4 under legal weight and then you simply add it back in a better spot by using the brass battery tray.

ybslowinc.com makes them in two different weights depending on your needs.

Yeah I guess you could say that. It will lower your cars CG when you put it in. Best thing is to try and lighten your car up high, and or in the drivetrain. Then add the weight back in down low and centered with the battery tray.

oh I see that makes sense
Are you racing at the Airtronics Race next month?
If so do you have any hot set ups for the track?

Yes, I am racing, but I could not give you a Mugen setup based on running a solid rear axle.
