Default MTX3 Side Conversion Belt

I am looking to purchase some side belts for my MTX3 that suit the pulley conversion.
Can anyone point me in the right direction to obtain some of these belts ???

I believe that team taylor racing has some. You can try contacting at

www.teamtaylorracing.net

Also on www.mugenracing.com in the shopping forum, Kawahara makes the belt.. K785 is the part number

Default mtx-3 carbon fiber chassis

Just finnished cutting the first prototype mtx-3 carbon fibre chassis. I've done a few for the mtx-4 and my friend wanted one for his 3 so I went to work on it today. Here are a few pictures.

Track testing tomorow, but if it performs like the one I did for the mtx4, it will be awsome. Took 50 grams of weight off the car too! (stock is 110 grams. this one is 60 grams) has the same side flex, but no chassis bow from front to rear unlike the stock aluminum one. This chassis should give more corner entry steering and more on throttle steering coming out of the corner. Testing it at B&B tomorrow around 4.

That looks really sweet, I was thinking about doing the same thing but was concerned that I would have problems with overheating the engine as the CF won't dissipate heat the same as aluminium. Can you let me know how it goes?

Default WinterNats

I am going to the WinterNats down in Florida in Mid February. I will most likely run the -3 Prospec. I'm not sure about the MTX-4 since I haven't tested it at all. I will bring it though. Anyone else going? I have never been to this race so I need to hook with someone to swap pit duties.

JEFF

Jeff:

I totally understand not feeling comfortable about going to a big race with a new platform. Give that new car a try. I have a feeling you will like it better than the 3 right out of the box.

Default It will be hot..........

Hi, the chassis looks great, but carbon fibre is not good to dispel the heat.
thanks
