Is this statement true :

harder damping ( thicker oil shock ) = slower corner entry speed & slower mid cornering speed.

only thing i understand about shock oil is if the track is level use thicker oil...and thinner oil for bumpy surfaces....on the other hand if we want more grip use light oil and vice versa...

I have had to play with the linkages for nearly two hours now. Is there an aluminum servo horn that will directly bolt onto Futaba servos WITHOUT the need for an adaptor?

Check that site out. It has all kinds of "rules" of what to do and when. Should answer your questions. There's a lot of detailon the entire site, but check out the Touring Car Setup Guide for quick answers

I cannot get the gears off of the clutchbell; are there any other ways to get these off besides the Mugen pinion gear removal?

How do you keep from ruining the gears and bending the clutchbell?

you don't grip it that tight and put a rag on it so you don't mark it up

I tried all the tricks with channel locks and vice grips and all that, because I was trying not to buy the tool. But once I tried the Pinion tool it was so damn easy, it's absolutely worth it. I know it's not cheap, but you're going to need it. Break down and order it

I just finshed building my MTX 3 and all is left is some final adjustments , but i have a couple questions

ON the setup sheet it lists rebound stop adjustment , is this the smae as droop ? also in the rear it suggests only 6mm , which leaves almost no down travel , would i add more droop if the track is bumpy or need more trraction on that end of the car ?

There is also a listing for bump stop, and it lists no , is this the uptravel limiting adjustment ? under what conditions would this adjustment be used ?

ON adjusting rear toe in it suggests 2.5 deg ,is that per side or total rear toe in ?

SO far im impressed with the car , looks extremely strong compared to the NTC3 that I ran last year . Hopefully next weekend i will race it .

Yes, Rebound Stop = Droop.
6mm is works fine, but with smaller tires you may need to use more droop.

I've never used bump stop, so maybe someone else could clarify.

The toe-in is 2.5 on each side.

This site http://home.tiscali.be/be067749/58/ should answer many setup questions you may have. (Except bump stop )

Nice article to read. Thanks GonzoY5.

Performula: make sure the engine's bottom screws ( 4 of them ) are securely tight to chassis and they will not move after impacts. That's maybe the reason of ruined spur gears.
