I saw shallow countersinking in the chassis in a kit so I think Mugen changed it. Don't know why as the orignal one was better.

I was told the arm material was changed so maybe the plastic shrinks differently.

I would see what your LHS can do about the 2 speed piece.
get the kawahara 2speed unit then. it is not expensive tho.

Intresting question 4 you all.

This is my third tuned pipe for this year (novarossi 51602---RBX12---novarossi 51603)

I noticed that the outer pulley on the centre bearing block gets extremely close to the tuned pipe, which results in the tip of the tuned pipe just bordering on the 200mm mark. The minute the car flips, there goes the tuned pipe.

Anyone notice that the tuned pipe can't be brought in any further (to prevent it hitting) because the outer pulley won't allow it to be angled in any further?

Have tried all 3 manifold this year as well with the same problem (original, RB and Novarossi manifolds)

Never had a problem with denting or damaging pipes in other cars except for the MTX because of this

Angle the stinger tip down at an angle.

Get the Kyosho Manifold for V1R !! it is wide apart from the main chassis.

Hey guys, where can I buy the throttle linkages for the MTX? Not the wire, but the small plastic pieces that attach to the servo horn. If anyone has some spare of these please email me. Thanks

Try www.speedtechrc.com. If you don't find it on the webpage, email Steve and he can probably help you find it.

it is not necessary to get particular the MTX2 throttle linkage kit. All other made are compatible and basically they are the same thing.

Has anyone seen or used the relatively new wheel spacers from Mugen (part # T0124)? They're supposed to be designed for the MTX-2 to allow 28mm wheels on the front without having to mod any steering components.

I'm not sure but I am pretty sure that I whatever wheels I use on the MTX-2 I have to mod all the time or that is just because I my blocks have an odd shape. Which I doubt.

MTX-2 Pro instructions state that if you run 30mm+ wheels, then the rear arms need to be shaved off at a certain section (refer to one of my previous post)

The spacers which have been included in the Pro are about 2-3mm in thickness. Looks like they have now been included to protect the bearing from contact with the alloy hub.

Who runs 30mm+ wheels on a Tourer anyway?? I run nothing more then 24-25mm.

I have the Pro Spec and i do run the yokomo 26mm fronts and 32mm rear on my car with out any modifications the go on no problem and they don't scrub the uprights. I race at a Very large Track and my car handles like its on rails. It goe where I put it. It stays planted.

What wheels are you running? I've been using ZAC 32mm in back and they rub.
