I do, but I don't have a pic right now.


I taped mine on top of the steering servo. You have to cut a bit on the servo holder where the transponder holder is attached.


I'll take a pic tonight

I go with red rarely when the track has high bite and the car isn't spinning on hard throttle during and after the turn. Clutch material just dictates clutch aggressiveness. And from what I have seen it goes like Artificial-I (and someone a while back) posted.


Hardest to Softest:
Black -> Grey -> Red -> Yellow

Softer material means there is no slip and has awesome grip when the clutch engages. While harder material means after the clutch has engage there will be some slip.

I just bought a yellow clutch shoe from a fellow racer, I'll be testing it out on the track in a week.

We only use the yellow one.
Before Mugen has released his yellow one, we have modified the serpent one.

Here's my version on how to place the electrical switch.

@Stefan: Enclosed is a pic of the Snake pipe hanger... looked for some days and my radio plate isn't rotten... should I worry on the future?

Hehehe... there are not many places to put such bulky electrical switch... wonder if KO someday will launch a reduced size (at least on height) electrical switch.

cam you make of course a picture where I can see where you have put the wires which come from the battery.

With all that wires (transponder, servos, switch) sometimes I think im driving a electric car

I dont like placing that pipe wire in that direction. If you place it the other way, the pipe will still be holded by the wire even if the screw on the pipe comes loose. I have been thinking of putting the pipe wire elsewhere since I broke a few upper decks on my MTX-3, and rcfoolz said he broke his upper deck on the MTX-4 on this part.

Wow so many opinions. So in otherwords we all have no clue.

I did notice that ALL HPI Team drivers were using the Grey Disc. For that reason I purchased it. But I also went searching for the red and was blown away at its high price compare to others?

I also snagged the yellow. Ill probably do some testing with it once I swap to the full mugen set on my r40. Been meaning to do it for awhile.

Also does anyone know a good place to call a Mugen Technical / Customer Service center in the USA? Im not too familiar with them or where to go. Im going to see if they can offer some help. Im also going to try and contact some mugen drivers and see if I cant get something resolved. As well will be racing next weekend and will poll a couple of the local racers.

Thanks for the input so far on the subject

A month or so back someone posted a file of the Hudy set-up book that comes with the Hudy Pro set-up kit. I let someone use it and never got it back. Can someone put it on here again? Thanks

By chance does anyone know where I can find the 25T side pulley and any Kawahara parts for the 4.

Thanks
