Go up 1 tooth on the 2nd gear pinion and try that. It should be close. Might need to come down a tooth or 2 on the spur as well. I wouldnt mess with 1st unless you have to. You want to still have that power out of the hole.

What engine and pipe you running? Some engines and pipe combinations cannot handle large gears as well as others.

With the TZ, it should be able to handle the 24 pinion. Try to get also the 23 pinion and compare them. You can only succeed in this hobby by trial and error, when there isn't someone else that has already done it.

How much clearance (end play) do you have? Does the nut that holds the spring on have any threads showing?

Default X3 VS X4

I HAVE AN MTX3 AND AM STILL SEARCHING FOR A SETUP, I DONT GET TO RACE AND PRACTICE AS OFTEN AS I NEED TO. HOW MUCH BETTER ARE THE X4'S TURNING OUT TO BE. I WANT ONE BUT I WOULDNT MIND WAITING FOR THE PROSPEC MODEL (IF THATS NOT GONNA BE 3 YRS FROM NOW) BUT IF THE DIFFERENCES ARENT OBVIOUS IM GONNA STICK WITH THE 3.

ANY SUGGESTIONS???

THANKS again.....now time to take out my tools again >_<;
After thorough inspection it was discovered that the aliment of the sway bar slots in the front holders were not straightened (or may because of binding due to the material and screws)....so I switched them to the alloy holders (single cam) and all the twitching and unbalance were gone. Anyways, thanks again to everybody that gave me tips and suggestoins. Also hope this can remind anyone else having the same issue with the stock holders.

BigTBone, the clutch setup that I have found that works best is as follows:
Grey shoe
lightweight flyweights
silver hard JP spring
clutch nut adjuster .8mm
endplay-.25mm

This has worked out good for me. I have not tried the yellow shoe yet, but I will probably try it out this year.
