Smile How change a front diff

Just for something completely different a question about an mtx5

I Just decided to rebuild a front diff. And put longer screws in it to Try to stop the leaking. It was interesting to note how much oil had leaked out, I was glad I decided to refill it.
Anyway I was surprised how long t took to get it out!
I spent some time thinking about how to do it with out removing any more then I needed. But I still seemed to strip the whole front end. Lol
I removed the bumper complete with the sway bar.
I had to remove the middle shaft bracket.
Remove the 4 screws holding the front upper arm mounts so I could lift the front of the radio tray.
Remove front shocks.
It was quite fiddledly to remove the bearings off the diff so the diff can be removed not mention how fiddledly it was reinstalling them!
It took quite a long time.
I'm wondering if anyone has a quicker method.
After having a 4r the 5 looked like it would be simpler, but it was still a big job.
I recon it would be a good 15 to 20 minute job to change a front belt and both pullies.
I now wonder if it would be quicker to remove one of the bulk heads... .?
Any thoughts guys?

We have been using the optional mugen pads and find they provide heaps of braking. To increase braking force you can shim the brake by using a .010mm shim on the brake pad shaft (T2309, you need a 4mm dia shim). This effectively reduces the amount of travel the brake piston needs. The shim goes between the brake pad shaft and outside brake pad and you don't need extended brake levers etc. But since using the optional pads we have had no need to use the shim as these have good grip. I also found correct servo travel is important in providing adequate braking force, I have seen some bad setups that don't provide enough travel. This can come about when you fiddle with TX setting like ATL & EPA and don't reset them correctly on the TX when installing or changing settings between cars. Unlike the 4R the 5 is more fiddly when it comes to setting certain things but done correctly its a great car.

Default MTX5 Clutch

Here´s an interwiew with Robert Pietsch, made last weekend in Italy, telling us that Mugen is developing upgrades to solve the clutch problems that some are experiencing.

race report copied off red r/c
The Circuit Lamberto Collari in Cassino was the host last weekend to top drivers from across Europe including Pietsch, Wischnewski, Spataro, Balestri, Tironi and others, as they took the opportunity to test ahead of August’s 1/10th 200mm Euros on the same track. Qualifying was dominated by KM driver Dario Balestri followed by another Italian driver Biagio Spataro in 2nd while reigning 1/8th scale World Champion Robert Pietsch was 3rd. On Sunday the two semi-finals were won by Serpent driver Alessio Mazzeo and Xray driver Dirk Wischnewski while problems for Pietsch, Spataro and Balestri in the semis meant they failed to make the final. After an initial battle in the main final between Mazzeo and Wischnewski, it was the Max powered Serpent 747 of Mazzeo that took the win followed by Francesco Tironi (Capricorn) in 2nd and Claudio Culoma (Xray) 3rd

So did he have a problem with stripped gear that only some of us are having problems with ?

and now they admitted there is a problem how long before they admit
and fix the brake issue only some of us are having or will stay silent on this to. I wonder when mugen will come on rc tech and tell us how to fix these issues or let us know they are working on them? or will mugen just put there heads back in sand and not worry about the sales that these issues are costing them.

Yes, i only had 1 strip too, i assume they will be changing the material of the gears. I do not expect major changes in the car itself.

all it does is make the other brands more appealing. and for the 747 ? 2 weeks out from its release and its winning big races around the world !
but on a more serious note, i really hope Mugen sorts it out for their customers.
