The reason I'm using kawahara because I could not find thicker roll bar for mtx4, and one thing I don't like about the blade type stabilizer is the weight. Nevertheless, the blade type also has wider adjustment possibility by turning the blade position, from 180 degree flat ( soft )to 90 degree vertical ( stiff ).

I heard something about the possibility of a new car coming out of the Mugen camp soon. Anybody know or heard? MTX 5?

The question was biggest eye opener, that was mine. I've always known what roll center does but up until recently I never really changed it much.

For the previous 2 sibling, they were lasted for about 3 years and launched coincidently around Sept/Oct timeframe. Hope they launch a new car and no more me too from 3 years "re-engineering" from "X".

Default Brake arm play - vertically - How much ?

Anyone know how much vertical play is normal in the brake arm ? I must have around 3mm.

Today I stripped a 52T, 3 53T and 2 54T 2nd gears. Please help me with what to look for that might be the cause of this. I replaced several things on the car today and nothing helped.

I had the same problem with stripping gears, Im not totally sure I fixed as I havent ran the car since but, make sure the 2 speed isnt hitting to hard when shifting. I think my problem was I didnt have the engine lined up very well with 2nd gear. Set your gear mesh with 1st gear off and make sure it is square with the pinons.
