I never run a switch, have had too many problems with them in the past. the vibration ends up killing them and the contacts start to bounce and cause radio problems. Most of us just run an ext lead to the top of the reciever cover stuck down with double sided tape, and just plug the Battery straight in. Eliminates one more component that can fail.

a friend of mine did that when stripped two gears on one day way too low! running the 16-20 1pitch mtx3 gears is like running 19-25 on the mtx4, no accelaration at all!
he later found out that the screw holding the graphite tray next to the brace was loose, he tied it and no more stripping.
I did this to prevent stripping gears.
1 6x10 .2mm shim between the pin and the bearing in the 2 speed shaft(or dremel the brace to avoid contact)
2 endplay of the main shaft shoul be minimum, enough so that the one way hub rolls freely without the spurs losing contact at all time with the pinions when the centax is engaged
3 check the space between the speed shoes, as long as there's no friction with the two speed hub, it's ok
4 adjust your centax at your most desirable setting, but keep in mind the endplay of the pinions, there should be contact at all time with the spus, if not, the signs of wear on your spur will let you know.
5 the most important, the pinions should be perfectly aligned both vertical and horizontal, the mtx4 is not unforgiving on this matter as the 3, and the reason is simple, smaller pinions!
6 adjust your gear meshing using only the smaller spur, should be parallel, free, and check the endplay of the centax, contact at all times, then install the bigger spur and it should be also free, if not too free, a couple runs will automatically adjust them!
I hope it helps you, cuz since I did this my spurs are like new, Heck I even have a 59 spur from my mtx3 running on my mtx4, and my 2 speed spur has 2 gallons of fuel and still works fine!

happy racing!

happy racing

Is the JP super hard clutch spring the same as the Mugen super hard clutch spring?

Whats the effect of the spring on clutch engagement? will it allow more rpm before the clutch engages?

The harder the spring or more you tighten the nut, the higher the RPM the clutch will engage.

depends on your track but ive found that the higher you have it the more rear grip you end up with and less when you have it at the bottom and the middle is inbetween, someone correct me if im wrong
