Default MTX-3 Clutch on the Reflex

Guys;

I am happy to report that the Mugen clutch worked Awesome in my Relfex. My initial benchtop settings were perfect and I didn't have to adjust it at the track. Gave me the extra Punch out of the corners that I was looking for.

Pops, glad to hear positive results.
I am wondering if anyone has used the
Trinity Centex for the RFX?

I will be trying mine out this weekend, weather permitting. The Trinity one is actually K-Factory. I hear that they are a bear to dial in. So sounds like it could be lots of fun!

By the way has anyone tried the solid diff in their car yet?

Later

ok guys I have had my reflex for about a year now and it has yet to be raced, been racing offroad 1/8. What parts seem to be the most fragile on the car? What seems to be a popular setup for the car with foams?

i have been racing my reflex for 6 months and i havent broken a part (touch wood) but i have spare arms and stuff incase something goes down....

heres what i use for foams... i run a one way and a front blade sway bar:

Front:

yellow springs
60wt oil
0.5 deg toe out
2 deg camber
ride height 5mm
caster shims: 1 thin behind the arm and 1 thick and 1 thin in front of the arm...
shock positions are just stock

sorry this is a little sketchy cause im thinking of it off the top of my head.

Rear:
2.5 to 3 deg toe in
kyosho black springs
60wt oil
4 deg camber (sounds extreme but for my track works great)
diff oil : 5000 wt
ride height 5.5mm

that should get you started... my car is dialled on my track i run 40 shore foams all round usually but sometimes run 42 fronts and 40 rears...

good luck with the car

Default MTX-3 Clutch on the Reflex

Popsracer:

Do you have a part number for that Mugen clutch. I was using the stock trinity one this weekend and was getting killed out of the corners due to the clutch engaging too soon and bogging down the engine (Trinity XP).

thanks.

Default trinity reflex

rodneybarrett;

I'm pretty sure it is TO713 "Clutch Set". The Pinions are NOT included. Mine didn't come with enough shims, so pick up a extra pack of shims. 'Mitch179' runs his with the Kyosho pinions, but I'm using the Reflex pinions with the 1st gear pinion spaced futher out to mesh better with the Spur.

Sean Powers, Tony Montana;

The Kit recommended set-ups are VERY good starting points. One thing about the Reflex is that it responds nicely to minor changes in set-up. I can always get mine to do what I want it too.

Some basics:

Large Flowing Track (usually permanent): 3 degrees or LESS Rear Toe, Caster Clips ALL in Front of Arm, Start at -1 Deg Front, -1.5 Deg Rear and adjust Camber based on Tire wear (usually Foams).

Small/Medium (Parking Lot Type): 3 degs or MORE Rear Toe, 1 Thin Caster clip in Front, the rest in back of Arm, -1 Deg Camber all around (mostly Rubber Tires).

Sorry to hear about your car!


Pops
All three shims up front?
I'll move them and head out to my
practice track for a few laps, thanks
for the tip.

Are you going to dougs this weekend ? My setup worked great on it last year.. popsracer is right, the kit setups are very slow to what i'm runing they work great. I found if you take the caster out of the Reflex is abit easyer to drive. you need to try i think to see if its for you tho.
