That was a typo. I normally start with a 1.5mm split. I have run the split down to .5mm. I use the 24t pulley. If the rear is pretty planted the low split gives a lot of on power steering. My home track has two big high speed sweeping turns that I can gain a lot of time in with the small split.

To me they are nothing special except that the cover layer is silver instead of the normal black pattern.

Default Mugen springs - help

Hi,

Can anyone please help me understand the Mugen's spring range colors from softest to hardest? I am new at Mugen and it is clearly different from Serpent's.

And how many Mugen shock oils there are?

Best regards,
Rui Cortez

Ok, is it just me or is the 4 a bit more of a pain to setup in the steering because it doesnt have the adjusting rod from the steering servo?

I had to pull it off a couple of times to get the steerin equal on both sides, otherwise it would have had 3 degrees more steering one way than the other

I end up with Subtrim at 50%

really isnt an issue if you set the sub trim to bring the horn neutral.

Default Drive shaft question

I have finished building my MTX-4, but am a little concerned that the rear drive shafts dont engage very far into the diff out drives. How many threads should show on the pivot balls once fitted to the suspension arms???
