Default Knack racing

I have the Knack Racing side brace on my MTX5 and It has not stripped any gear what so ever.... Also it made the car feel really good on the track. Oh! I have the first version of the MTX5 too! No new gears and none of that new stuff on the new car. If I were you I would invest in one of those brace's

Default clutch set-up

One thing I noticed on the clutch is that the car uses a aluminum clutch nut. We all know when aluminum gets hot it expands. After that the clutch nut will back off and there goes that perfect clutch set-up you had. So I put the old steel one on and my clutch never changed on me during the race!!!! A little something for you guys to try..... And the ultra hard spring is the ticket.
Also I put a blue clutch shoe on it....POW!!!! off every corner.

Good point Tony, the clutch spring nut will back off, and blue loctite will eat away at it. What BLUE shoe are u talking about?

Xceed had a clutch for the MTX4 and it came with a blue shoe. I had some in my parts box and I tried it. I don't know if they still make them

We must not underestimate the clutch in the whole of our MTX5.
In fact, it is so versatile and so little criticism that everything changes depending on the engine used and the track (eg xray is not as critical).
soft hard with engines that do not push up or fat will slip the bell wearing out and warming up the transmission.
l 'single index of a clutch well done is the' wear and tear of the strain. Always check after each session, the 'wear by measuring the distance bell-strain under 2 bearings, if the distance increases the friction is not good.
if the clutch and 'well done 99% does not dissolve the crown.
:-)
bye

Just picked up a mtx-5 and pretty stocked on the purchase. Does anyone have a good set-up for GLARCR in Los Angeles they would not mind sharing? Also any upgrade parts that the car needs that would be considered an absolute have to? Thanks!

Which brace are you referring to? I am assuming you mean a side brace and not the Mugen front and rear body braces correct? I am trying to find a side brace but am coming up with no luck. Any ideas?

Yes, the side brace that eliminates the chances of the spur gears from stripping. You can make one from a turnbuckle with ball joints at each end. I've seen some made with carbon fiber, another one out of aluminum. Look thru the old postings in this thread, I've seen a lot of people posting pics.
