This is something that the mugen clutch doesn't have, and many people needed to drill the flyweights on the Mugen clutch to make it that extra responsive.

So you bought my Centax afterall. I could of did u a better deal if you went for all of it at once
Mugen has option flyweights that has two holes on each of the flyweights.

Before you use my setup take a look at my track pictures. It is very bumpy and has low grip. It is untreated and only blown off.

Front:

50wt shock oil
1.5 degrees camber
0 toe
droop 1mm
rebound set so the chassis just touches the ground
caster 10 degree
ride height 5mm
track 199mm
50,000wt in diff

Rear:

50wt shock oil
.5 degrees camber
Linkage on lower hub hole and upper bulkhead hole
2.5 toe in
droop 6mm
rebound set so chassis just touches ground
ride height 5mm
track 199mm
10,000wt in diff

.5 neg rear camber? How are the outside of your foams in the rear wearing?

BTW don't you just hate it when Novarossi has to upstage your track with pics of his. LOL j/k Novaman.

Amazingly the rear foams are almost perfectly flat. I cant explain that one. I had 1 degree camber in the front and the foams coned out to about 2 degrees positive. I have gone to 1.5 to try and reduce this some.

That Moorebank track is just awesome! The pics are of my local "carpark" style track. I am going to race at a better track soon so I will try and get some pics of that soon.

Oh that makes sense. Sorry I'm must be dyslexic or something. But still with .5 camber in the rear and those tires are perfectly flat? Hmmm my MTX-2 must be rolling too much.

They are a little coned right near the inside edge but very minimal. It may be where I have the rear camber linkage set it is almost horizontal. This makes the car roll more at the rear (I think?) which may be improving the rear tire wear. If I have too much more rear camber I lose too much grip on my current track.

If the upper links are parallel to the lower arms (horizontal) I think you'll get less roll since it makes the rollcenter closer to the CG. Manticore will tell us.
