When the chassis is tweaked, yes you can compensate it with droop setting and shock collars but this is for emergency only. After that day you need to replace it for sure. Tweaked chassis make your setting off !!! and ackward feeling.

I have a mtx4 clutch set. Is the mtx3 clutch bell a direct fit? Assuming that I'm not using this clutch in a mtx4?

The MTX-3 has 5x10 size bearings and the MTX-4 has 5x8 bearing so they are not interchangable.

Roger, Roger! I was wondering when they were finally going to do some light weight pulley hubs. Thanks for the scoop. Man, I just milled and balanced my stock set, too. Did they give you any release dates yet?

The parts are now available through MugenUSA. As for pricing, I don't know how much they would go for retail since pricing varies from shop to shop.

Has anyone tried the PDub brake disk. Got mine yesterday. Looks like I'm going to have to drill out the 3 foating holes because of the tight fit. But aside from that, instructions I believe said to not run pads. The disk is trick and lightweight compared to the Option disk, but I'm hoping someone has input on how it will perform after brake in.

Hey Tommy,
Whats up, hope every thing is good.

I talked to Larry and Mike about the brake disc, it takes about 30 minutes to break-in. At first the brake will be touchy, but once it breaks-in it will be dialed.

Hey guys, I know it's probably posted somewhere, but I just got myself a MTX-4 and was wondering about all the talk I heard from some people about the stripping of the gears. Is this a serious problem or has it been resolved? A friend of mine said he used the old 1.0 module with his instead of the .8 module that came with the kit.

I know u must be saying, what a time to ask, after u've already bought it.
