ran the car last friday night, very impressed how it handled. I made some changes to make it handle better in our local track. Changed the steering insert from A to B and gray springs. I noticed the tire wear was so much better than the 3 (using 24t pulley). I used 2mm split. I did not have a problem with rear shock tower but my bro did. It wasn't really a serious accident, however it broke just 2 holes above where the shocks are mounted. It was one of those accidents that your first reaction is, "that was a lazy crush, and it broke?"... He never really noticed it until after the race. Amazingly enough, his lap times did not change, still lucky . I guess it depends on how lucky you are, but from experience - durability is still an issue for those skinny shock towers. Overall, its one heck of a car. Can't wait to run it again next week.

I am kinda dissapointed that the "3" pinions dont work. I had all of them.
Just buy a pair of MTX3 spur gears - then you can use all of your pinions.

The plastic spurs are cheaper to replace than the alloy spurs

Default Conical manifold for 2,1cc engine

It is possible to see the performances, this type of CONICAL

5 fins manifold - short type (best solution on long straights)

6 fins manifold - medium type (suggested to have more push exiting curves and on the straight)

7 fins manifold - long type (more power exiting curves)

Choose your weapon

The MTX 4 uses the same spurs as the 3. The 4 uses much smaller pinions that won't fit onto the 4 clutch bell.

I took my car out for its first race meet and was impressed how well it went against the Serpents, R40s, and Kyoshos. My lap times are down by half a second

here is a couple of pics
