Yep, you just need to remove the rear body mount, or just cut the mount down if you're running a sedan body.

There's a blade style aluminum front sway bar on ebay right now for $15. Not sure which brand, probably 3Racing.

AMGRacer or Manticore...

I noticed the pictures that AMGRacer showed was using rubber tires with the MTX3 mod. Does that work well also? I assumed the mod would be more for a foam car.

the mugen mod will let you take care of that by adjusting the shim on the hub.

Is there a part # for the shim on the hub? what are the size of these shims? In multiple of 1mm/0.5mm?

Oh, I dunno . . We use the Fantom clutch for the same reasons - there was no RR around at the time. The Fantom clutch uses three conical pieces for the fly-weights and has never given us a problem. I would say it's a pretty robust unit, just not as light as the latest trick ones like the Kawahara.

Had a chance to try the Fantom Red springs last weekend. We started off using Gold all round and ended the day with Black fronts and the Red's on the rear. Tyres were Active 40/40. I was pretty pleased with how this all worked, actually, but I can't imagine how we would find enough steering if we had used Red's on the front also. I had imagined that Brendale has only a little more grip than Lilydale - never run at Brendale, so I'm guessing a bit, here.
I would think that Fantom Yellows would be really skatey at Lilydale.

We also tried some new gearing. 18/22 with 48/43 spurs.
I know it looks wrong on paper, but on the track it was great.
These Venom pinions wear very well, too.
Hehehehe trust me the Mugen clutch is much better and lighter

Some people like hyper steering, and in fact some tracks hook up the back end better than the front end. Brendale is fine with slightly harder front springs and 40/40sh tires. For me that is

You are right, but the MTX3 hubs with the upper inner Kyosho hole and no shims on the hub is around perfect for rubber tires on my track. It gives around .5 degrees camber change under compression.

Put it on the lower inner hole and around 3mm of shims for a fast foam tire setup.
