CVD's are a must! Other than that, the stock mtx-4 is very capable. However, I found the the rear lower hinge pin holder is a little weak. Meaning the one that goes in the front, of the rear has a tendancy to strip out. I run a Kawahara one and it has not failed since.

Other than that, you can get some of the MSR lightweight pully adaptors and shafts, Titanium screws and you have a car that is a winner.

@Stefan: I see, you get ready for the outdoor season in Germany's south region. Looking forward to see you there.
I haven't had the time to do any nitro preparations yet, too much work & races with all the electric support recently. But at least I ordered all the new bits for the car now, so I can get ready anytime when I finally find time and am in the mood...

What's your first race in south? I'm going to start my season mid of May in Turkheim, should be a great track for 1:10 sedan gas.

not that I know of........I've been making my own 4mm ones since the car came out, but you are right, it does need that.

I'm just putting my car together and have a question. I'm putting the car together with the front oneway but I think the tracks I'm going to be running on will require either the front diff or front spool. My question is this. What's the part number for the o-ring (S3 or S5) and small washers (OW3.5x7.5x02 or OW5x10x0.2)? Are these items in a package diff hardware kit or something? I'd like to have an assembled spool & diff in my box just in case.

I guess I found the o-rings (T0243-44) what about the small washers that go over the o-rings.

Yes, you will definitely need to change the setup if you're going to use a spool as the it will introduce off throttle push and less steering during breaking. you could stick with 30k rear diff if traction is high.

you will also need to change your driving habits as well and a spool does take some time getting used to.

Still own my old MTX-2 (from `99-00)
here is my MTX-4

took me a good week (3-3.5 hrs a day) dont rush yourself) too have everything complete, used a hudy setup board, believe me the MTX-4 is a horse at the track, alot of little things you need to pay attention too when assembling this kit. Fast Lap times, feel free to ask questions



Happy Building

Yes, the two grub screws that hold the small ball in is what you use to adjust that gap.

If those are shims then the Nitrohouse website must be wrong. Anyone know of the part numbers for the washers?

anybody know this situation, i'm fairly new to nitro on-road cars:

about after 5-8 minutes of racing car feels like it won't shift into second.

is something heating up that I need to adjust?

I got a stock O.S. TZ , everything stock on the clutch system. After It did it the first time I changed out the clutch to a yellow pad and it did the same thing.

I didn't touch the two-speed clutch because it shifts at the correct time on the track.

Only happens after the car has been run for 5-8 minutes in a ten minute race.
