I heard JP alluminium clutchbell are quite easy to deform due to heat ( perhaps from using wrong clutch shoe compound ) and become some kind of suck experiences you may encounter.

I just keep it stock baby ......

6th day of racing, and stripped my first second gear. Twice! put in the 3rd
2nd gear and tighened the mesh and reduced the gap in the 2 speed and ran 15minutes. does that sound like a fixxer?

it's time to use search threads and show the result by post. Fill in the magic words : stripping gear.

Default mtx-4 set up

I just bought a mtx-4 used
but I did not get a manual with it so I was wondering where is a good web site to down load set up sheets and or find a good set up
I'm looking forward to getting on the track it should be a night and day difference from my vision pro I was driving

Thanks for the response wally, and I will go to the link you posted I am sure these suggestions will help me over this problem.

Just went to the track today... tried the MSR Spring, yellow clutch shoe, drilled out the clutch weights with the 3.5mm drill bit and WOW. BIG difference in performance and the engine seems to run better too. I have no issues with tuning at all. Infact I may even stay with my current motor....ehh nahhhh I need MORE POWER/TOP END!!
