Default Mazda 6 Bodyshell mounting ?

Hi Guys !

I've noticed that when i try to mount my Protoform Mazda 6 body into the MTX4, the rear bodypost seems to go through the the "recess" of the bodyshell where it holds the wing.

Is this the correct way to make the holes and mount it ?

The MTX4 bodypost seems to be slightly further apart than the 3. And i don't think it make sense to push the body backwards to avoid that "recess area", then i've got to cut the bumper.

Appreciate your sharing ! Thanks !

So, you mean if I place a huge boulder on my car it will be stronger?
I dont see where you are going with that but its all in materials or lack of them on the car...Sometimes lighter is stronger too. I have to get my hands on a scale someday....IMO, if you were right than a stock r40 ranging from about 1780-1900 grams willl ripe right through both the 710, RRR, and the mtx 4? Also cars can run better with a little weight it keeps it planted on the ground.
A lighter car can speed up faster too...thats all i wanted.

I bought a crimp tool for installing new ends, it costs $10.00. I buy new ends and cut the wires to what I want them. If I can do it 1 handed you guys have no excuses!

I've done as much as I can with the car to get weight off it. Iv done all Ti pivots, screws, shafts, 2 speed, I can't find anyplace to get more out of it. I'm at 1770 race ready without fuel. Any thing else?
If you want more weight off, try to used alu screws to mount servo. might help. You already replace the middle shaft? whats the parts no. ??

I took all the screws left that are not Ti and checked against Ti ones. Would save 4grams more.

PHP Code:
Engine will run at higher RPM with taller gearingHow come
My bad, what was i thinking...too early in the morning

Riketsu is right, let say your first gear final is 7 and second gear is 4, the engine has to spin 7 times to rotate the tire once in the first gear and so on.

This isn't much of a test, but I had the car out last night on the street, just setting the 2 speed shift point. The car has A LOT of stearing! It comes off the line very quick too. Easy to recover from a spin (just had to try), and it the rear is planted, I took it to the end of the road, where its sandy and turned around, the car tracked very well.

From the build, I had to back the shift point adjustment screws out 3 1/2 turns.

I only ran 1/2 tank, but I can't wait to get this on the track!

Default 4mm rear shock towers for sale

I have 4mm rear shock towers for MTX-4 for sale.

I have recessed the mounting point surface by 1.5 mm so you don't need spacers for the lower shock mount.

Nice and beefy.

$20.00 includes Priority Mail Shipping.

I'll post some pix later in the week.
