the kyosho pinion is around US$5 and the mugen pinion is around US$10 here. i am sure this is because of the mark up from the dealer

Default Pinion gears

Guys,
I'm exclusively using Yokomo pinions. They are ~$9 compared to ~$18 for the Mugen pinions and they fit perfectly.

Guys

Kawahara Negative Diff with Front Oneway review part 2

Continue from Yesterday review, Today I went to a different track in the city of Montclair, I am not sure the name of it but someone told me it's call Revolution.

Setting of my MTX today is:
Front Track: 197mm
Rear Track: 199mm
Front Ride Height: 4mm
Rear Ride Height: 5mm
Front Camber: 0
Front Toe: 0
Rear Camber: 1
Rear Toe: 3
Centex Clutch
Kawahara Negative Diff
Mugen Front oneway
Stock silver front spring
HPI Pink 272g/in rear spring

Tires, I am using Yokomo 32mm rear foam and 26mm front foam both firm(they work extremely good)

Today probably is the best day of my RC life, the car hooks up so good, traction is unbelieveable, right sweeper towards straight away is extremely stable. Here is the best part: roll in to right sweeper then gun it all the way through the end of straight away then let the car roll 25 feet towards the end then roll in a right turn. the car just screams all the way through the straight away.

Seems like the front oneway and the negative diff could really make rolling turns diameter decrease and it would pull the car out of cornors, all the turns are so tight now but the front still push a little bit kind of have to let go of gas earlier to make a perfect turn otherwise the car pushes the front may be I need different springs on the front.

Got a lot of compliments from a serpent guy, he might be one of those serpent team driver, man this guy is fast I mean really really fast! He complimented on the top end of the car and the can handles really good!

So that will make my day! car ran great, pretty much like it goes where I wanna it to go instead of fighting for traction and engine!
By the way engine was running in the neiborhood of 235~240
degree.

Planning to get Mugen Light Blue Springs for front and Purple for rear and decrease the rear toe to 2 or so(rear seems like have too much traction, front push a little bit

That will sum it up! if any of you guys have questions please shoot me a email, I am expecting suggestions on how to make it run better too! Thanks guys

Question for ProSpec owners: what additional parts did you purchase for your cars? I have seen braces for Impulse that join radio plate to rear 'housing', behind the engine, are they needed or is it stiff enough? Any pics or links would be good. Thanks!

Hi Guys,

We got two new lines of Foam tires in stock. First is the Zac Project Multi-Ring foam tires, available in 26mm for the front and 26 and 32mm for the rear. Second is Mugen Fast Tire foam tires, which are very similar to Treadz compound. All available in 26mm width, and we have 3 compounds for the rear and one for the front. Best of all, they are very well priced. Available now on our website!

Thanks

Steve Wang

Clutch & Tranny options

Welll My MUgen will be on the way soon.....


I was curious about the clutch and 2 speed.... I am a big fan of the Serpent clutch and 2 speed, because of their adjustability. IS there a conversion for the Mugen, or is there a kit made specicifally for this car.



Thanks

Rich

I have the Kawahara 2 speed kit on mine it's the 2 shoe type tranny, and as far as clutch if you are getting the Pro Spec it has the centax clutch with it.
