Any news on the enduro race? I've not ran the track as yet but we might come down if the schedule is right. This weekend would have been good for me.
Yeah I know, I just want to get ideas of what I'm looking at. I like opinions, that's why I ask for them. Ultimately, I do make my own decisions. If I made all my decisions only based on other people's opinions, I'd be driving a 710 in Miami right? HA!

I'm not sure when the enduro is going to be. Andy & Henry need to talk about it. These Holiday weekends are usually dead at the track. Serpent's going to the Nats next weekend so that's out, and DJ told me they might not have their equipment back for the following weekend either. So we'll see. It's obviously important that Serpent attends.

When Mugen releases the new car I'm going to take a good look at the three (Mugen/Serpent/Kyosho) cars and make my decision. I'm going to make my MTX3 last until then.

Yeah don't listen to [email protected]$$es like that. It's complicated. It's been answered several times throughout this thread I'm sure. I know there's a ton of pages, but do a search and you should find the info.

As for me. I usually start with the spring adjusting nut between 9 & 10 mm from the end as cdelong described. Then I put shims before the inside bearing until the bell spins free and isn't dragging on the clutch shoe and then add one more after that. From there I set the endplay accordingly and start running and just adjust the spring again to look for the clutch engagement that I like. Never had clutch problems with that setup. Good luck.

Depends on the engine, clutch setup, and the track as what gearing is best. I would reccomend that you keep the gear equal. Either change the 59 spur to a 58, or make the 52 spur a 53.

You have a 6 tooth difference on the pinions, so you should make the spur gear difference 6 teeth.

I have a brand new X-12.

So far my pinion gears are stock but my spur gears are 44/48.

So its:

1st = 16-48

2nd = 20-44

Think my gearing is okay for the X-12?

I also have these spare spur gears:

2nd gear- 43 T

1st gear- 46 T

1st gear- 47 T

I can switch to these if nessesary, thanks.







EDIT:

I noticed the .08 gears are WAY different, do you think I should get those for the x-12?

The only place I can find them is at nitrohouse.

The gray has more bite.

-If you want then do an "Advanced search" on "gray shoe".
-Make sure to select "Show results as" post and search only the "Nitro On-road" forum.
-Now look for the post that came from the "Mugen MTX-3" forum (located beside the icon that looks like a folder). Click on the text that's from the first line of the post (located beside the icon looks like a sheet of paper) to display the post.

hi. is there a good tool i can buy to get the flywheel nut off?

i use my regular 4 way cross wrench (from my 1/8 scale) but the engine shaft hits before i can get to the nut...

is there a specific branded tool that takes off the nut?
