probably not before september, but i have to agree on the 4mm chassis, the stock 3mm in my opinion is a little fragile. 4mm chassis would be nice.
as far as aftermarket goes, i know 3racing makes 4mm chassis for mtx-4 which i was going to buy but a little hesitate about their quality, has anyone tried it ?

The biggest thing I don't like the 3R 4mm chassis is that it doesn't have recess (cut out) areas for the bolt-on components, which can affect the entire suspension layout and setup.

Thumbs up 3Racing Parts

Tag, don't be hesitant on the quality of 3Racing. Their parts are way nicer than Skyline, K Factory, and a lot of the other companys out there. The only parts that are as nice or nicer are the ones form Kawahara. I have the 4mm chassis, and as I have said before, getting 3Racing parts is like bolting a piece of jewelery onto your car. It is very nice. And for $50, you really cant beat it. The Mugen one will be over $100 when it comes out I'm sure.

Raising the shock will make the suspension feel softer allowing the car to roll more. Lowering them does the opposite, makes it feel stiffer.

Who uses the upstops in the front? How much do you allow the suspension to move?

What Joe (GrandeGixxer) said is correct.

I use the upstops on some tracks. Revelation raceway is the only place so far. I as well as many other drivers I know use the upstops in the front of the car at that track.

Guys, I dont follow this thread so this may have been asked already. I am looking for a good clutch setting with a MTX4 clutch setup for short and tight tracks with a N12LL3. I have a number of corners where you slow right down and I am looking for maximum punch out of my clutch.

I have a stock MTX4 clutch with the grey, yellow and red shoes available. Any input appreciated!!

Thumbs up

I just finished racing today and I was trying out the yellow clutch shoe. The track was big and technical and the clutch had a lot of grip out of the corners. It might have been to much, I still don't know yet because I was also trying to get the 2-speed to shift at a certain point. Would changing from the black clutch shoe to the yellow cause the 2-speed to get out of wack? I spent all my qualifiers just trying to get the 2-speed to shift right. But it was fun.

I disagree. I think that it is the reverse effect.


On the upstops, I make it have less movement when I have a problem with traction rolling.

Well if your clutch is locking up at a low rpm then it is not hitting the power band of the motor untill later. If the clutch slipped a little it would hit the power band of the motor quicker and then shift sooner. Try to let the new shoe slip a little more and the shift point should come back down to were you had it before. If you loosen up the black clutch shoe it would do the same thing.
I hope this helps...
If I am wrong you didn't hear this from me...

Can anyone tell me if the mtx4's second speed shoe adaptor (where the two 3mm bearings sits on the second speed clutch shoe) is compatible with the mtx3's ? I am having problem of the second speed shoe adaptor malfunctioning to often. The 3mm bearing tends to eat into the adaptor and jamming the two speed clutch in the process.
