Thanks! Then I want to ask how to descripe the bearing is required to be replace. Or could we repair the bearing by ourselves?

- I was told to change the rear shock ends (the ones that holds the steering knuckle onto the chassis) to the longs ones instead of the short as this will make the suspesion arms flat rather than on an angle as this will help rear end stabilty - is this the case? I know the angle of the arms effect roll centre??
yeah which ball ends do you guys normally use in the rear?

Speaking of new parts from Kyosho, the company has released a new clutch system. I read this article from http://www.rc411.com/pages/newsarchi...e=012007#29726. Anyways, I copied the article to save you time

Kyosho 2D Racing Clutch

Posted on Monday, January 15, 2007 at 9:41 AM by DerekB

Friday, Jan. 12th, 2007 - The Kyosho 2D Racing Clutch is specially developed for IFMAR World Championship competition and modern, high revving racing engines. This clutch has a special combination of features that produce very strong acceleration and consistent performance desired by the top racers in the world.
A new nickel-plated lightweight flywheel has a smooth, polished surface that allows the clutch flyweights to move smoothly and consistently. The red clutch shoe is the same high-grip material used in the 1:8 Evolva, which provides strong engagement with less slip, which reduces heat to provide consistent performance from start to finish. The clutch kit includes everything you need for installation - simply swap the pinion gears from your standard clutch and you're ready to race!

That clutch has been on the RSS Page from kyosho usa since October

Quote:
Displayed at the Tokyo hobbyshow was a new 2D 1/10 scale clutch. This clutch was used at the 2006 IFMAR World Championships by Team Kyosho drivers. The 2D clutch allows the clutch to lock and put 100% of the power to the tires while also allowing a nice drivable feel. You will feel like you have a lower first gear when using this clutch.

But i wonder what the benefit is compared to the normal clutch.

I use the medium ones and the flat spring cup. If you use the short ball cups you risk not getting the correct droop because the shocks are too short. That is what I found on my car.

Hi everyone,,

I'm currently a Mugen owner and seriously thinking of switching brands. I'm thinking of switching from MTX-4 to RRR EVO WC. My main inquiry is about assembling the car. Currently all my tools are hex wreches. If I wanted to change all the screws from the RRR to hex, can anyone tell me how many I would need and the sizes please?

Although this is a RRR thread, but seriously guys,, do you really think I would be the right choice of switching brands??

Thanks in advance..

It looks like 2 of the flyweights are missing in the picture.

The only difference I can see is 4 flyweights vs. 3 flyweights on the stock clutch and the material of the flywheel.

What am I missing?

I would recommend switching all the screws to hex when you first build the car. You can buy a screw kit or you can checkout the list Rainer made. http://www.nitrokb.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=102

As for an opinion on the car, I have never driven an MTX-4 so I cannot judge but I think when you consider all reasons you select a car (quality, performance, price, parts price, durability, support, etc...) the RRR is the best car available.

Racing4Evo and kidDynomite switched from the RRR WCE to the MTX-4 and they are loving the Mugen more than the RRR.

Main question is, why are you switching?? What issue are you trying to address?

BTW... I don't think anyone makes a specific Evo / Evo WCE screw kit. You can probably ask Tony, from Tony's Screws to make a specific set for you. I just picked up a set of Tony's Screws for my MTX-4 to use as spares.

FYI: Hexscrews.com screws are nice, but their set is not complete. It doesn't include any button head screws, washers, nuts or set screws.
