Hey Pooh, its Charlie from Staten Island with the ntc3. Hows things. I finally sold the tc3, now I have the RRR and MRX4. I joined up and will be racing at Floyd this year, since we lost our spot on the island. Tired of trying to run my TC against .21s during practice, lol. All I got to do with my 4 so far, is brake in my engine. Maybe I can give all a run for their $$ in 2 classes now. Hopefully, it wont take too long to get used to 1/8 driving. HarKonnenD is a cool kid who is very willing to learn, and not bad for the amount of time he is driving.

I'm sure this has been answered, but I just went through about 5 pages and didn't find it.......

where does the new yellow clutch fall in line with the previous black/gray/red clutches?

I generally run the gray clutch..... sometimes a red.

I think it's between the grey and the red. Or it might replace the grey.

Reds are expensive here...like $18 bux. The greys are 7.50 and yellows are 10. They are softest I think, greys hardest, and reds are in between.

I'm not sure if the yellows are the softest but they do have a ton of grip. They last longer than the reds and actually run better a little glazed. They seemed to grip too much and the car would bog coming out of the corner. Grays still seem to be the best all around. Just my experience/opinion.

Yo dawg, use Arnold's Country Classics "Wheat" bread for the best setup on the MRX4!

Nice meeting you. Feel free to ask for any help with your setup.

Basically, more adjustability. You can change belt tensions, use lower bodies, change the rear upper arm geometry, etc. This can all translate into a better handling/driving car.

The yellow shoe would be the best performance gain, if it works to your driving style.
