re-mesh your gears.. maybe the pinions are too close/tight to the spurs thus the lack of gap between the housing and the bell.

Yea I had that happen too. It put a small groove in the two speed bell but I have not noticed any issues with it.

Are you guys setting the diffs on the stiffest setting for new belts?

The spur and pinion gears are becoming thinner ( smaller diameter ). They need replacement.

Another alternative permanent solution is using 1 tooth larger on pinion gears.

I think There are 2 MTX-4s sitting in 7th and 3rd and 2nd at the pro series race in Nebraska after 3 qualifiers.

Today I finally decided to test drive MTX4 ( I own the car long time ago since it first released ). The car has better feeling than MTX3. I notice the car could turn faster than MTX3 and it feels stable during high speed and sweeper entry. Nice !!!

Hi asw7576,

are the spur and pinion gears really becoming thinner???

i really need to know, cos yesterday during my club race.
I stripped my 2nd speed spur on every qualifying heat.
and I'm running stock pinion and spurs setup(17/23 n 59/53).
not only myself... the whole team is suffering from sudden strange happening
and we never had this problem before!!!

Pls enlighten
cos we've up and coming big race next month

HELP!!!!!

New belts and gears and they broke again. The top 3 guys all had MTX-4's and we all broke our belts. The other two put new belts on before the 30 min main and still broke. The other two dropped out so I had the lead from the 15 min mark and at the last fuel stop I broke. I am going to try using the stock belts again.

What belt are you guys having problems with? After I switched to the rubber belts, I only have to change the rear belt often. I think I damaged the rear bulkhead or maybe the bulkhead was deformed from the factory.

I've had a couple of races ruined because of the belt stripping.

I had my first belt breakage last time i raced. I must admit our track is littered with small rocks that get in the gears very easily. I am hoping though that this is not a regular occurance.

Cheers Daniel
