Not a problem bro... if you insist on using front diff, you're asking for overheat and fading with that shitty disk, better to add 7grams and have sure if you yank the brake it will stop rather than coast until the hairpin or the concrete wall.

wassup guys! So...I've been running my car for about 2 weeks now. I love it...but I just can't seem to get used to the front one-way. Braking sucks! I've adjusted my radio abs plus mechanically on the car to a point where I'll get as much brake I can without the car pulling or spinning out. However, I lose so much time/distance at the end of a straight going into the turn. The guys with regular diffs just out brake me. How do you guys counter the effects of the front one-way? Or is it I'm just too worried about going into the corner too hot and I should just have confidence that the car will just stick? BTW, I've got the car setup according to the setup sheet but with 30,000 wt diff oil.

Driving with a oneway definitely requires a different driving style. I liken driving with a one-way to driving an out of control car. Sometimes being fast around a track will mean your car is out of control or at the edge of control.

You know your car is going to spin when you get on the brakes so why not use it to your advantage as best as possible by timing it so that the car will rotate at the apex of the corner. It takes a little practice to make it look like your car is not out of control. I like to set up my car with heavy understeer when I drive like this so I can be aggressive with throttle, brake and steering input. I hope that helps. It isn't always the fastest way around a track but it's there as a driving style to think about.

A particular track I run at requires 4 wheel braking, so I installed a diff. Problem solved. There are some tracks where you just require the braking to be either consistent or even fast. Get hold of the parts to make a front diff and see if it suits your track better by looking at the lap and race times.

If you're short on cash to buy the tools here's what to do. Grab your self a towel and push it in hard and turn clockwise ( I know it's hard but works for me before) You must have a strong arm.

Make sure you're not putting the spring seat in upside down,spring should fit in recess of cup spring seat, I can always put even the hard spring on and adjust with bare hands, tool makes it easier, but should not need it.

Take the clutch back apart and start over, very simple unit.

Yes, you're right I was amazed because I drove a mate mtx3 it was understeer and it was the same setup as my mtx3. With mtx4 he goes 1 sec quicker now, I go 2 seconds slower

Guys i am struggling at the moment with engine dramas. What i have is a bottom end problem the engine wont return back to idle and if it does eventually get back to idle it takes a long time to. What i thought this was was air leaks in my engine, however i put a different engine in the car last night because someone insisted i try it to keep me racing and the same result. So what i think it comes back to now is either pipe or furel tank. Has anyone had any similar problem with a tank?

Cheers Dan

Try replacing all your fuel tubing as well. Do you use a pressure chamber or a lot of extra tubing for pressure? Check those and make sure the fuel lid is sealing. I've heard of fuel tanks developing leaks before...very rare. Check all around the tank where the two parts are fused together. You can also remove the tank, spray the tank with Windex, plug up one hole, blow through the other and look for bubbles. The only way the pipe would make a difference is if the nipple was clogged or somehow no back pressure was coming through it. Hope is helps.
