They were hong kong kits. They are located in Hong Kong so I would not expect to get a Mugen USA product from a hong kong dealer. I was just surprised to see that there were no kits on their website

mugen titanium pivot balls is around $80. 3racing has them also for around $25. i'm not sure about the quality of the 3racing ones. but of course the mugen's are already tested. i may pick up a set from 3racing this week just to see how durable they are.

the rear shock towers..... i replaced mine with a 4mm one just because i broke it on my first night out with my MTX-4. buddy of mine has his still stock after 4 race weekends. my bro didn't break his, but replaced it with a 3mm skyline shock tower just for insurance (after what happened to mine )

tag,
i'm glad you got it already. i always try my best to ship orders as fast as i can so they can be on their way sooner.
they fit really good. just make sure you clear the manifold. even a tiny bit of clearance is ok as long as it's not touching the manifold.

i really like the tensioner that the mtx-4 has. unlike the ones from my mtx-3, where it goes up and down easily and not solid. i broke a number of exhaust gaskets because of this but now with the mtx-4, that problem is gone

I made a refined and editable version of the MTX4 set up sheet. But...I don't know how to post it for eveyone to download it. Too large to upload as a PDF (over 1 mb). Could someone PM me and let me how to post a link so everyone can dowload a file from my server. Thanks.

How is the carbon fiber chassis holding up???? I would like more feedback now that you've had a chance to use it for some time now.

Thanks

I will be testing out the carbon fiber chassis next weekend at our regular club race. I will let everyone know what I think after that as long as we get good weather.

I will tell you how I set up my clutch. This isn't going to be easy to describe in writing, but I will give it a try.

First, I usually run on tracks that have medium to high traction. I take the flyweights that come with the car and drill out the holes to 3.5mm. I tighten the spring adjuster down so that when I measure from the edge of the crankshaft (novarossi/based engines) to the adjuster it is 9.5mm.

Next shimming. Put the two bearings in to the clutch bell as described in the manual (two on the inside and one on the outside). I add shims right onto the crankshaft until the clutch bell doesn't rub on the clutch shoe. It takes a lot of shims (sometimes 10 or more). Once I have it to where it doesn't rub I add one more shim. Put the clutch bell and thrust bearing on following the instructions. Set the end play adding shims as needed to make it tight, then remove one shim. That is how I have been running my clutch. Don't ask me if that is right, but that is how I have been setting up and running my clutch.
