I'm running 2 degree offset and setting my track width accordingly. Is that OK or should I really be running 0 degree?

I can see that is what I am going to do. The spacers that come with the car is not tight on the shaft so it is going to rub on the shield of the bearing. Those spacers are SH*T I can only wonder what Mugen was thinking when they decided to have people use them.

Then grey gives the most snap and he said was the best I believe, but will only last about 1.5 hours.
Use grey when grip is very good. If grip falls, switch to yellow. This is a strategy I found works well for me and always carry both shoes in my kit bag when out at the track. As for the spring, Mugen Super Hard.

Yes and when thats no good , red will offer a little less snap.

So this is how it goes.

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

Quick Overview:
Grey is 1.5 hours of use, most snap.
Red and Yellow are very similiar in grip and wear with 3.5-4.0 hours of use, with yellow giving a little more snap.

Well I was way off then with the clutch. I always thought that gray would last a lot longer than red or yellow. How many colors are out now? Just gray, red and yellow; or black, gray, red and yellow?

Grey is probably the best all around shoe. Problem is the high plastic content makes it melt on extreme condition. If you are only getting 1 hr out of grey on a 12 engine, it is sliping too much and not getting power to the wheels. On 21 engine, grey last around an hour.

Red is a great shoe when it is set correctly. Margin of error on setup is very slim. It will slip if it is just a little off.

Looks like there is a front multi-front differential for the MTX-4. You can run a oneway, oneway solid, or a spool. Check it out:
