Hey Joe, how's going. I've been running my MRX4 lately and haven't touched my seden for awhile. I did not get a MTX4 so I don't know how it compares with the RRR but I am planning to stick with the RRR for now. Half of the people I know who switched from RRR to MTX4 likes it and the other half tells me RRR is better

So are you saying you need offset wheels for the RRR WCE to make 200mm width? I just got my car mostly built tonight, and I'm entirely new to nitro on road. I was just going to order some tires to get a start on the summer, but I want to order the right tires. Offset wheels or no?

For my rears since my LHS doen't carry 2deg offset rims, I just put a 1mm shim between the hex and rim. That is very close to the 2deg.

The thrust bearing IMHO should have a good quality grease applied as part of your preparation for the days racing. If you treat it well then you will get good life out of it.

Check that there is about 0.15mm endplay on the clutchbell, you may have to many shims installed or maybe not enough.

If you are not sure about building the clutch than go and read Josh Cryuls Centrifugal Clutch Assembly & Tuning 101 and it will give you a good basis work from.
