Turn your dial caliper so the dial lines up with zero when it's closed. Otherwise so it read 1mm back.

Gotcha..makes sense.

Default Titanium

The only thing I have managed to see any benefit for having Titanium is the pivot balls. Not even so much for strength, but more weight. It's typically the type of weight I wouldn't worry about, but in this case it's all unsprung. Nothin better than letting your suspension work freely!

Is it just my old age eyesight, or do I see a change in the brakes on the new MTX-3... Have a look, it looks like a miniture version of the MRX-3 brakes.

You need some new trifocal glasses.

What your talking about? All I see is a vented rotor.

Actually thats a pretty good point. This is the first TC with a rotor brake. But hey, Mugen's new logo for the MTX-3 is "Just Faster" so you must need them (mugenseiki.com)

Bugging him about what? Don't want to share? Keeping secrets? Oh I see how it is Mikey.
