Corse R,

I seem to have a problem when I run a 7mm split. I'm running a MRX3 and every time I run a 7mm split the car pushes and the rear steps out on corner exit. Can't figure it out.

The split for a MRX3 was different, it needed 6mm, the 4 and 4-R needs 7 milimeters... did somewhat similar the first time I put the 4-R on the track with a 6mm split. Doh!

Thanks for confirming that for me. I noticed that the car handled better for me with a 5mm split but everyone else ran 7mm so I kept trying it but it never works.

New parts coming for mrx4, this was taken off futaba shop web site.


H0139-B front upright (MRX4)

#H0181A 3mm spacer (0.5mm/10 entrance)

#H0181B 3mm spacer (1mm/10 entrance)

#H0181C 3mm spacer (2mm/10 entrance)

#H0181D 3mm spacer (3mm/10 entrance)


It is the new model front upright for MRX4. When the roll doing with 4mm lowering position of the steering wheel arm, it reaches the point where bump in is attached radius of the corner entrance becomes small. The spacer where thickness differs (H0181A~D) you can use and can adjust quality.
In addition, it is possible, the wheel offset ([sukurabu]) by the fact that interval of the axle bearing it makes 1mm narrow to designate the axle shaft to as outside former compared to 1mm it is possible in this range to adjust the quantity. When cutting the steering wheel by the fact that the wheel offset is taken largely, you hold down from the tire outside in the road surface, from the corner entrance to outside you reach the point where it bends well.


#H0075 MRX4-R chassis kit
65520 (substance price \ 62400/including tax prices \ 84000)

MRX4-R upgraded. The modification point is as follows.
Option H0474 chassis of setting (hard type) standard equipment.
New model front upright (H0139-B) standard equipment.

Default Carbon fiber front body mount....

Does anyone use the CF front body mount besides the looks? Really don't know if is hype, but seemed the car went a little more responsive specially on high speed sections holding more the front of the body (noticed more scratches on the front of the chassis).

Corse, i am using the carbon fibre body mount and i have noticed a small difference in turning, it seems to have more bite in the tight turns.
i also just bought a couple of blitz bodies for my 4R, they have better clearance over the front shock tower and provide more downforce, i will be running the blitz body at the canadian gas nats this weekend.
i will let yas know how i make out.

Anyone ever have the clutch fly weights spit themselves out of the clutch?? (I did today!!??) The clutch bell was spaced at no more than .6mm without the rear bearing in and then reassembled. Do you need to shim the rear bearing as well? And if so what are the guidelines for shimming the rear bearing?

Default clutch

JJ After you have got your spacing without the bearing in it, put the bearing back in and spin the clutch bell on the clutch. You should be able to freely spin the clutch bell without it stopping on the pads. Start to shim off the clutch nut or (engine nut) till you get the bell to spin freely. Then put it all together the way you had it. I know my clutch bell inner bearing is spaced about 2 1/2 to 3mm off the clutch nut threads with the bearing and bell all put together with the .06 spacing in it like yours. Let me know if this makes sense to you.

Kurly,
Thanks. It makes total sense!! I don't know what the ---- I was thinking. I didn't shim the rear bearing which caused the the clutch bell to woble and allow the fly weights to pop out!!! Live and learn. lol My buddy was leaving early the day my cluth spat out the fly weights and he let me pull the mill from his car for the mains......which I won!!! Now, to rebuild my C5 and put my clutch together properly!!!
