Even if your truer doesn't have the camber adjustment, the extra toe in added to the rear end will make a big difference.

What is the benefit of using the "Red" clutch vs the stock "black" clutch? I am currently using the stock, but a friend suggested me to go with the red. I like my currently engine responds, which is shy at initial throttle, but the power band is smooth with power at top. If I upgraded to the red clutch plus a stiffen spring, what should I anticipate? Thanks.

Basically material properties; RED is softest, then GREY. Softer meaning less slipping and more "bite" when the spring/shoe engages with the clutchbell.

So with a SILVER spring and GREY shoe (assuming they are adjusted properly), your engine has a chance to rev just before the clutch engages which makes for better acceleration - just make sure you have the traction to do this.

Personally, I have had good luck with the GREY shoe and Silver spring combination - but feel free to experiment. You should notice a difference in engine stall speed and how hard the clutch engages. Good luck!

i believe the red is the hardest but i may be wrong... but red is all i use because of noticeable grip (non-slipping feel) and power out through corners.

Believe me or not, I still love my MTX3 more than 4.

MTX3 Prospec is my car and it's my sherman tank.

Default Tweak? Car bolting right..

So I have a problem. Got the universals, installed, hit the track! Everything is great except for a slight problem. On power, the car jolts to the right. It seems to track straight but hit the gas and the car bolts to the right everytime. Any ideas anyone?? What should i check. Where should i start?
