spend a little more time with the grup screw instead of cross pin. it worths the effort.

Hmmm, your pic shows a disk carrier pretty much like the one I made.
The K Factory one I saw at the LHS also included an alloy pulley.

It appears that the position of your grub screw doesn't utilise the 2mm pin hole as it is further along the shaft, yeah?
It would be easier to drill and tap a thread for a grup screw than mill the slot for a pin. I guess just grinding a flat for the grub screw should work OK.
Your pic shows a 4mm grub screw by the looks of it, yeah?

the adaptor is a 3racing one which made for cross pin. and I modifast it to make it grub screw mounted.

yes, make a flat spot on the shaft and it is a 4mm screw

Well, I use to run an MTX2 with an RR backend....so I guess its logical that you should run the RR with an MTX3 backend!!

Hey Manti,

Do you have to run special tires for the MTX-3 Rear hubs? I noticed that fast tires now have foams specially designed for the MTX-3.

Default V1R universals/CVD's

Hey Guys;

Do any of you know if Universals/CVD's for the V1R will also fit the Reflex NT and if so, what brand/type would you recommend.
The ones on the NT seem to bend VERY easily.

Thanks again,
