Like I posted earlier, kyosho has kevlar option belts, not the same as comes with kit. Does the mugen centax and pinions fit? I'm pretty sure the two speed parts serpant copy. What other manufacture pinions fit the stock end bell? Do the stock pinions fit the mugen centax?

yeah i have those option 'team kyosho' belts....

the mugen centax fits and works great ... I use Kyosho pinions on my mugen clutch bell so i couldnt say if the pinions from the kit fit... If you are going to get the mugen centax i would reccomend using the kyosho pinions with it

Default Reflex OPTION parts

mitch179;

Which Engine mounts did you use with the Mugen Centax clutch. The Standard 1 piece or the lowered mounts?

Thanks

srfreeman;

For rubber tires on Asphalt:

Front shocks 45wt oil, Start with one thin Caster clip in front and adjust depending on the track layout. Zero degs Front Toe, 5mm ride height, 2mm Droop, -1 deg Camber.

Rear Shocks 40wt oil, 3-4 degs Rear toe (depending on bite), 5mm ride height, 4mm Droop, -1 deg Camber. On a very large High Speed track, I might run 2 degs Rear Toe or a very loose track, I've run as much as 5 degrees. More Rear Toe also helps rotate the Car through the turns.

All other setting are the Kit recommended settings. I only change Front Caster and Rear Toe based on Track conditions. If I run Foams, I will adjust Rear Camber to -1.5 degs for wear, but thats it.
The Reflex handles MUCH better with a little stiffer springs than the 'Blue' Kit springs.
What I really like about this Car, is it responds to minor set-up changes very well. Unlike my old HPI Nitro car, which was VERY numb to changes.

Have fun

Thanks for the setup!
What spring are you guys using? It looks like the Associated tc3 spring kit should work and has a lot of springs to tune with.

Thanks, That is what I was hoping you would say. I really didn't like the idea of going to a smaller flywheel as I am very happy with the acceleration and idle characteristics of the standard RFX flywheel.

Thanks, again

PS: I am assuming that the Clutch parts must be purchaced seperately, or do they sell it as a complete unit?

It must be a Ritchy mod engine. His engines in the UK have been showing pretty impressive pace and statements have been made that they were able to outrun a 1:8th car down the straight.

That sounds scary to me since the police clocked our 1:8th cars at over 80mph on a 70m straight 10 years ago and power has increased seriously since then. But I would say that on an average 1:10th circuit here in the UK they would be only reaching the 70mph mark in the right circumstances. 60mph to me would sound about right.

Would be interested to see. I guess it could be possible, after all a Superntiro went 100mph a while back. Guys from RC Car Action. Remember that? It was wild!

Later
