With the so called release of the MTX4, will Mugen still manufacture parts for the MTX3?

For instance, anyone still use their MTX2?

Hey guys,

Can you tell me the difference in the A, B, and C blocks in the rear of the car? Will the C block give more traction versus the B and A blocks?
Thanks

OH MY GOD I HAVE THE EXACT SAME PROBLEM. Happens to me more on sweeping turns toward the middle and exit. I've done all I could imagine and get get it fixed. Let me know if you figure it out.

I have some similar problem. What I found was in my carbon fiber front shock tower. Some how...I broke it. It just crack enough to bend the shock tower it self...and enough for you to just miss it. Some how stock shock tower was easily brocken. I did upgrade to 3racing thick tower.

Well, after tearing down the car it looks like my 4mm chassis it slightly bent in the front. On a flat surface the front area where the bumber mounts is about 1~2mm off the surface. Weird part is it almost looks exactly even side to side so its odd that it only affected right hand turns. I guess a tweaked car will do wierd stuff?

I noticed this with my R40 this afternoon while taking my car apart, perfectly even, but the front was a tad higher.

I think that there is a lot of twist going on from the belts and pulleys, add a 1.4-1.7HP motor to the equation and it might make since. That could have caused the problem.

Yeah,

I went from 10k to 30k and it made a big difference. Many people are using 50k in their diffs. I just don't understand why they have good results with that. Oh well I'm going back to 10k.

Thanks

We run 100k on one of our tracks. Depends on how much grip is available and whether the track is real smooth or very bumpy etc...

So removing the stabilizers makes the car easier or harder to drive?
