maybe we should chek d overdrive ratio chart?smaller start fron tyre may giv u higher overdrive means u wil v a faster rotation that is good for technical i think..bigger fron wil coz d corners turning affects,car might be lazy to go in and out..but it is still beter to go bit smaller fron in d main and even qlfying coz like wat scott said,rear wears more..well maybe can cater wit higher rear tyres..but d traction set up hv to change..

You can run 0 offset wheels, you will just have to back out your pillow balls a little. I have run them many times.

Treadz and Fast both have dish wheels that work on the MTX3.

Clutch Help!

Ok, I am still kind of new to this whole Nitro touring car thing. I have the mtx-3 prospec, but I am having a heck of a time getting the clutch working. The car goes and all, but it feels like I have a 25,000 rpm stall converter in there. I mean I really have to wrap it up to get it to move, and wow, when it engages it really hits hard. At first a couple of the locals thought it was something in the two speed and that it was just launching into second. I have played with it and got it somewhat drivable so I know that the car is revving up to about 25k and then engages hard, pulls first gear, and then jumps in to second. I have that part working good, it is just the engine clutch. I have the "stock" pro spec clutch (grey shoe).

Assuming you have assembled everything correctly, I would try loosening the clutch nut (less tension on the spring). It is also possible that you have too much endplay.

Josh Cyruls (cefx) website helped me a lot with the building of the centax clutch. If you build it like the Mugen instructions show, your clutch will drag.

It looks like I might have a bit too much end play. I measured it at .o25 in. ~.635mm. I will add another shim and see. What do you mean it will drag if I built it like the book? Also do you have the link to the site?

Would switching to the red clutch allow it to engage sooner?

Go on e/bay look under mtx3 or mugen, there are packs on there that are 900 m.a. sanyos. These just hit the market in Japan.

I`ve found that if you run a softer front you can start the tires the same size. Besides there is an added benifit, MORE STEERING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When you put the clutch together, and put the bell on , push in on it if it hits the clutch shoe put a shim between the adjuster and the clutch bell. When you daont feel any drag anymore, add .010 to the shims then put on the bolt, make sure that there is no endplay and the clutch should be good. ( The gray shoe gives the least amount of slip, the red shoe is almost as much but lasts longer)

If you are running a one way, one side of it may be dirty or bad, try to clean it out using alcohol, then put ( 1DROP OF OIL ON EACH ONE) and I am willing to bet that is your problem.
