Does anyone know if there is a solid front axle for the MTX2. A group of us were in Cincy for the weekend. If you ever get the change to go to that track you need to go. IT IS AWESOME!!!

I tried this and I did not overheat the fuel Firday or yesterday. Friday it was warm and I ran only 1 tank. Yesterday was cool, 58, but no vaporlock and I ran 2 tanks nonstop.
Thanks

RC Nitro, Your welcome, it's almost to easy. Sometimes all it takes is a simple fix. WE always try to complicate things.

Hard Jokur,

that's the whole kit, I'm only looking for the arms.

Larry, Fiorino makes one. I think GS Silicones are the importer.

Are you going to be back at the bowl next week?

Stefan, try giving Castle Hobbies a call. If they do not have them you might want to try RC Imports directly as they are not the same company.

Regarding the new Kawahara clutch this thing looks to be super trick as it is a minaturized centax clutch with low height engine mount. It's significantly lighter and smaller than the stock mugen one and even the Kawahara small diameter fly wheel. Supposedly it is so small that it allows the engine to be mounted almost flat on the chassi for a super low CG! Check out the picture.

Stefan, Thanks, I will try to find it today. I don't think I will be there this weekend. Need a little break.

TKT,
Thanks for pointing out the size on the new centax clutch. Your right , IT IS TRICK. Need to take a closer look now.

Larry,

come on, breaks are for old people!!!

If you can't find that solid axle, you could still JB weld you original front diff....

Why do you need it anyways? What is a solid front supposd to do? Take steering out or give you more?

Later,
Stefan

Stefan,
From what I understand you lose a little steering, but you get full time braking back. You know, so you can drive harder into the corners.

the car has plenty of steering...

I have 100k in the front diff and 30K in the rear diff.

If I need more steering.... remove the front sway, or softer tires.
