Your feedback would be appreciated.
Thanks!
Replace the whole thing dude.

I don't think you can remove the bearing inside the 2nd gear housing without damaging the housing itself. It's machine pressed.

I once had no parts available, so I managed to replace both bearings for less than $12, both parts are duratrax and 6mm, just used a bushing and a press
happy racing

In fact, if you look at the beginning of the thread, I was one of them plan to get the car when it come out, but my budget didn't allow back there. so I go mongoose and eventually G4S. I really like G4S, I never had though of getting MTX-4 until MotorMan get dropped, I was a victim of Trinity back in 2003 when they distribute the first G4C/E. that is why I get back to original plan although I compliant MTX-4 is over priced material wise.

For the record I have emailed Robbie Collins in the US, the email address on the Japanese website and the Australian distributor about information regarding the worlds setup and I have not even had a reply from any of them. Pretty average.

Default Btech-RC hopups

Winter has arrived up here in Montreal so we at FX Racing Hobby have focussed on importing BTECH-RC hopups.

http://www.btech-rc.com/









I,m going to be running this stuff in 2007 on my MTX4. Very high quality stuff.

Come's from France, and we obtained the North American distributorship so we are very much interested in USA dealers picking up some of these items.

Thanks
Steve

The chassis is 4 mm made from high quality Fortal 7022T6 (One of the best aluminum grades out there) ($84 USD retail)

The clutch bell is made from 7075T6 aluminum and weigh's only 3.9 grams compared to the 11 gr stock version. ($31 USD retail)

Forgot to mention the four holes in the clutch bell for ease of ajustment of the spring nut and perfect balance rotation.

nice
i checed out the FX racing hobbies site and there is 2 types of chassis there.
is the only difference that the pro one is milled out a little more for weight saving?
how does the clutchbell hold up in a high heat and stress area compared to the standard one?
