So in conclusion i am sorry if i upset anyone on here but i think in future people who are asking the question on this topic should just do some research for themselves to save the differences of opinion and the arguments.

Hey Dan, debates should be democratic and free for all people who wish to express their opinion, so your opinion is always welcome.

Default Droop

I simply meant that I think droop is a very important adjustment...........If your car is loose under power off the corner, increase the amount of droop in the front to allow more weight to be transferred to the rear of the car . If the car pushes off throttle.....try adding more droop to the rear for more weight transfer. Now when I say add droop, I mean a smaller # on your droop gauges, let the arms hang down further........
Paul P.S. Now who has the best price for the MTX-4 shipped to Maryland?

Thumbs up

Well adding the engine brace and shimming the clutch-bell took care of the 2nd gear stripping. I ran it hard to and could not get it to strip out like last Sunday. That San Antonio track had alot more traction than I was use to. I liked it alot. I did manage to spin out and break the rear arm and it's amazing how easy it was to replace.

I think off power push is the common problem for the mtx4 and also on power, the rear end break loose. Im still trying to figure it out and by reading others suggestion, i'll just give it a try.

selamik!! A blocks ay?! remember i help modify the TZ. infact, it was my steady hand that did all the modding! go, quick, i think your mum is calling you to chop up the parsley for the tabuli



OK SERIOUS NOTE!

got my mono parts, major issue with the mid bearing block! the nut provided is too big and it subsequently hits the pulley lucky i had a shallow nut from my pro4 and it is fine, most people will not have this handy though.

the mid bearing block and the chassis top deck brace both require glue to hold the nuts. the titanium screws are very strong and a nice of brown colour looks good. you get heaps of screws in the kit that aren;t required though. i elft my bottom chassis screws with the steel type though.

HERE IS A RUN DOWN OF THE WEIGHT OF THE MONO PARTS:

-brake bracket; standard; 5.1 grms option 8.1g
-brake lever; S: 2.3g O 3.8g
-sway bar metalic holders; S;0.8g O; 1.4g
-motor brace; S: no weigh O; 2.1
-top deck brace: S: 7.4g O 10.8
-mid bearing block; s: 4.8 O: 7.9
-top front arm holder; S; 3.4g X2 O: 5.4g X2
-one way belt tension peices: S; 1.9g X2 S: 3.8g X2
titanium screw kit full kit 39.7g (standard screw kit weigh not known due to some screws on car)

basically the standard parts are 31 g total and the mono parts50.4g but the titanium screws lighten the car by about 27 grams anyway, and the extra ridigity fromt he alloy is a positive. i have titanium pivot balls though as well so i saved heaps here.

i also have a 2 speed shaft that weighs 10.6 grams. the mono part is 15grams
