yes you can use the mtx3 flywheel the only difference is the width of the contact patch that comes in contact with your starter box, i have used mtx3 flywheel in mtx4 when i swaped engines so it does fit

If I am incorrect, please someone correct me. This is just theory. However, I don't realy see a need to do this, there is way too many other adjustments that can be done to make the car do what you want.
yep..it mostly helps you to take tight corners better instead of your car become too sensitive..and i do try out at our local hi speed swinger sweeper..looks and feels ok to me..sorry i cant snap a photo,but roughly the place that i did is ..if you look at the fron bulkhead,at the rear part,there is a 1mm extra portion you can take as aguide to cut,but its not only that,you will have to cater also the fron sway mounting and also the right bulhead surface..sound like too complicated,but if you spend bout 2hrs,then you get it right..then apply thick shims or washer to make the arm move/stay backwards,so mean your front wheelbase already closer to the rear..if i m not mistaken,it gona be 260mm++.
i didnt loose my rear too with the modification..r40 has it,but its from the rear..

bro..it depends to what front side pulley you are using?24?25?24 you will have to take front and rear diameter difference by 2.5mm,then you wil get all four tyres rotates equally..25 pulley will gives you a full 4wd at same tyre diameter..
comeback to your tracl surface and layout..maybe you need big or less tyre diameter for it..this you will have to try out..

try go mugen web and look for gear ratio and roll out chart..study that ez chart and you wil get it..good luck.

yep..eventhough it is sitting on..doesnt mean it is ok..i meant you will have to see it without belt assembly,look for if the flange or adaptor you call it is little voble,then this can contributes to belt wear,especialy urethane belt..if it is,change the adaptor..the plastic pulley might be affected too..

Upper Deck Design : I guess nothing you can do with it without major modification.

4mm or 6mm Rear Shock Tower : Use 3x16mm countersunk screws to joint the shock tower and bulkhead. Also use 3x10mm or 3x12mm countersunk for top bulkhead.

Clutchbell : Use longer screws like 3x14mm ?

Fuel Tank : Use short piping and 1 novarossi filter to keep it below 75cc.

I also switch back to original mtx4 brake disc ( thin ). MTX3 prospec disc are too thick and it is too close to carburator ( novarossi or jp engines ).
if you turn it front,you will have to press the tension bearing lower..mechanical tensioner theory,shouldt go closer to the mid point coz you will loose the belt play smoothness and ez belt displacement when vibrates..unles you really apply the tension.That my question to Kenji,after market tensioner place it forward,Kenji replied that way..the purpose is to avoid the belt touching the manefol and most efficient to be at the place..but they will think of an alternative or just let it be as it does not affect the performance..

as for the brake disc,i am using kfactory disc..

the highly used sidebelt on my mtx4 was very loose when using the 24t pulley, so when a teeth of the belt got ripped I figured a way to apply higher tension, the tensioner has no more movement and the belt in that part almost touches each other, so I used the belt tensioner of the mtx3, and with a little piece of graphite from a a mtx3 front tower broken, I now have a belt tensioner that goes next to the 24t pulley, the sidebelt now has the right tension both front and rear and just took a few grams and less than $10 bucks, the best is that your sidebelt will last longer since therea are no more missing teeth. by the way I use stock belt!
will post pics!

happy racing!

I am using Kyosho RRR's side belt on my MTX4 and it's perfect. I am still using the same belt since day 1.
