Car ran extremely well , then I threw my regular tricks at the TZ motor and its a beast now. Only 160F temps and its too fast for its own good. It just brakes traction. I didnt see any reason to lean it more , but did anyway and oh my! Low or high rpm it was just leaving patches and taching straight to max rpm. It sounded like it was driving on dust. Will have to see how it truly runs once I got the right tires on a prepared track and see how it grabs. Got the clutch right where I want it also. Mugen Gold spring and mugen yellow pad. Tensioner nearly out.

It seems like a lot of the screw to threaded ball connections like to come off , been getting out the lock tite on all those. So far so good. Nothing like a shakedown on a nice warm florida day.

Heres some photos of the new pressure chamber setup.


These are the days that it just feels so good to just have a nice car ready to go. Good weather + good car = good day. Also yes landscaping was done by yours truly.
First, I hate you for the palm trees in the pictures

Secondly, you need to get those switch wires a bit cleaner, that looks ugly! I also think that they could get tangled with the servo horn.

Hey, It was good to meet you at the Winternats. When you get the car all together, don't buy a 4mm shock tower, just shoot me a pm, and I will get one of mine out to you. Where did you end up?

Default Bling or Necessary?

Finally going back to Mugen. I was looking at so many of the hop-ups out there and trying to sift through what the necessities are. Correct me if I need anything else.

Front CVD's
One piece engine mount
Rubber belts
Doubled up Rear shock tower
lightened two-speed and middle shaft.

What about clutch shoes:
Black or Grey?
Clutch Spring: Mugen Super Hard?

What are the most often used pinions for 1st and 2nd gear?
How durable are the aluminum pinions? or look at steel?
Spurs: Most often used ones?

Any help would be appreciated.

The grey shoe is included in the kit. Black I wouldnt reccomend. Yellow is the best bet behind grey.

Last 2-3 times as long , is a little easier on the engagement and wont beat up your clutch bell as bad. It should also proove a little cooler on the clutch bell and I feel this might also help with the 2nd gear spur issues some. As well yellow costs half the price of the older red , which is meant more for the mrx4. It also performs nearly the same.

Id also just look for the 4mm rear damper stay (shock tower). Its an easy find if you ask me.

I also like the titanium screw kit. But im a gram shaver....I goto counseling on the issue every week. But there Iam 2am in the morning buying parts to make my car lighter. Its an addiction I tell you.

Steel are the best , will last longer and from what mugen says is easier on the spur gears , again this should help keep the 2nd gear from blowing out.

The only necessary hop up IMO would be the front CVD's.
As for saving weight I put ti pivot balls and ti screw kit -A- and my car went under the minimum weight for roar by 25 grams.
