Default MTX3 !!!!????

Everyone at the track this weekend was talking about the new Mugen MTX3, which combines MTX2 and crankshaft. Did you guys know something about it?
Cheers

I am sure AH10 has them as they are a hop-up item!
Kawahara makes them too.

Look at speedtech web page.
Good luck

Default Pulleys

Thanks pepe and RCnitro!

RC nitro - do you think the Mugen pulleys are as good as the Kawahara? Did you get alluminium pulleys because the plastic ones kept getting chewed? Are your kawahara pulleys damaged at all? Thanks for your advice!

Sharp: I had a HPI in the past and rocks would get stuck in the plastic pullies. Therefore I opted for the metal as soon as I could. My side pullies were getting chewed. I like the Kawahara better, I have the rear Mugan pully, the one on the brake disk. This had to be modified as one shaft was not aligned and the brakes dragged. Shafts were to long also. Tried a buds Kawahara and this fit with no mods......... No damage yet on the pullies. The Robinson Racing I ran on the HPI were still good after 2 years

I never had trouble with my plastic pulleys. Probably because I race in a permanent track. No plans in changing to metal ones yet.
When we use to race in a parking lot we used to clean the surface first.
Good luck

Default Old rummors

I have been reading for a long time rumors about the oversteering problem of the mugen. People saying thats why the original version came with 30,000/5,000 diff oil combination and the 1.9/f and 1.4/r springs. Was that true? If so , How in the world Mugen came up with the idea of the ProSpec version.

A front one-way and 30,000 in the rear?

Please comment....

I've got one! man this thing grabs so hard when it is engaged, it grabs harder then using mugen centex clutch with grey clutch shoe! Besides it comes with Kawahara low CG engine mount and thrust bearing. So I think it is a very good buy.

It's all in the setup....any car can be made to understeer and oversteer (sometimes with only one setting!!!).....those people saying that haven't figured this out yet!!

I'm running EP now. Running the Alex CE4, everyone says this car understeers....last weekend I got it to oversteer!!!
