I am sure this is a molding problem from left to right.
The problem that I have with the plastic holder is when I tighten the adjusting screw it bent the arm pin which make the suspension not working probably even without the blade installed.

No doubt that the car is very able. You must also take into consideration that it just so happen that top drivers in the country are jumping on the bandwagon and that is why you see they occupy the top spots

Actually, not all top drivers were present in the race as that race was pretty close to the 1 or 2 other races on that long holiday weekend.

Generally, MTX-3 cars do dominate in races here.

so are you saying the driver accounts for the win, not the car ?

by the way, i am using mtx3 clutch and engine mount with 25T and 375mm belt and they do rub but not that critical. I might need to file away some material from the header to minimize rubbing. that will help to reduce weight too !
I am using V1-rr clutch and V1-rr blue engine mount with 25T and 375mm belt, they don't rub but the belt is very very loose. When I change to 27T with 375mm belt it is too tight can you advise what should I do?

No... No time warp devices used

This race was actually held on September 1st if I'm not mistaken. August 31st was open practise day.

The other race that AMGRacer quoted was held on August 31st.

375 belt is for 25T pulley OD configuration.

you should use 384 belt instead for 27T pulley

the reason why your 375 belt with 25T doesnt rub the header is that your engine sits taller and the belt is kept away from the header.

wonder if i could use the knobs from the MTX-3.

Thank you Manticore!

BTW I am running front diff, shouldn't I use 375 belt with 25T pulley? Or what should my configuration be?
